FAQ’s Dogs

What do I need to bring in when I bring my dog to board?

You will need to bring your vaccination card or book, we will record your last vaccination details and give you it back. We supply bowls and so on, people somtimes bring in chews and treats, the hard ones that last may be best. If you dont feed chews at home then dont bring them in in case they upset your dogs stomach.

Do I need a kennel cough vaccination or is my booster vaccination enough?

You will need a separate kennel cough vaccination as well as your booster.

My dog isn’t vaccinated, what do I do?

Your dog must have up to date vaccinations. Ask your vet for a booster vaccination course and a kennel cough vaccination. Bear in mind that there will be a time delay when you start or restart, so allow for this before your holidays start.

I’ve had to start/restart my booster vaccination, is the first part of the vaccination sufficient?

You will need to go back for the second part of a booster, normally 2 to 3 weeks after the first part. We need you to have had the second part of the vaccination course as well. (This doesn’t apply to the kennel cough vaccination, it consists of only one part rather than two.)

How do I know if my vaccinations are in date?

It may tell you in your vaccination book or card when your next vaccinations are due. Your vet will also be able to advise you over the phone.

Can I get a replacement vaccination book if I have lost the original?

The vet that gave you the last vaccinations will normally give you a replacement free of charge.

Will my dog mix with other dogs?

The dogs are kept in separate kennels and walked individually.

Are there any age restrictions?

As long as your puppy is old enough to have completed the vaccinations that’s fine. We also look after old dogs as long as they are still in good health.

What shall I do about flea treatments?

Keep your flea treatment up to date as you normally would, but please don’t put flea treatment on the dogs skin/coat just before bringing the dog in to us, as we will come in contact with the chemicals when walking the dog.
