Pet Vaccination Requirements

We require that all pets boarding with us must be fully vaccinated,  including the Kennel Cough vaccination and that all their boosters are up to date. All vaccinations require annual boosters.

Kennel Cough

It is possible for kennel cough (canine bronchitis) to be passed on anywhere that dogs congregate. Kennels with a rapid turnover of guests can be particularly susceptible. We ask that all dogs are vaccinated against the disease, and any dogs coughing will not be allowed to board. Please ask your vet for details of the vaccination, it will have to be administered at least a week before boarding and now lasts for a year so is easy to get when your dog has its annual booster.

The above is for the comfort and safety of all our boarders, where a risk of cross-infection may exist.

We need to see each dog’s vaccination card or other veterinary certificate at the time of checking in for our own records.

The staff are friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable and the kennels are clean and secure. The dogs are exercised regularly in the runs and they always come home happy and healthy. Definitely recommend them.
