Starting October 1st, 2018, dogs will also be required to show proof they are fully vaccinated with both rounds of the Canine Influenza H3N2/H3N8 vaccine. Visit here for details.

*MANDATORY WAITING PERIOD FOLLOWING ANY BORDETELLA VACCINATION

After being vaccinated with the Bordetella Vaccine, a mandatory waiting period is required before your dog can come into Bark-A-Bout and be around other dogs*.  Because of this waiting period, we strongly advise that your dog receive their Bordetella Vaccination at least two to three weeks prior to your dog’s scheduled stay at Bark-A-Bout.  The Bordetella Vaccination is much like a flu shot for humans, in that, following their vaccination, there is a possibility that your dog might contract a mild form of the strain.  As a result, your dog may be contagious for two weeks following being vaccinated.  If your dog shows any symptoms of Kennel Cough, they are not allowed in our facility at any time during their treatment. Additionally, all dogs must be symptom free for at least 14 days before they can return to activity at Bark-A-Bout.

 FIRST TIME BORDETELLA VACCINATION WAITING PERIOD GUIDELINES:  

Intranasal/ Oral Vaccination Method: (1 dose): A non-negotiable 10-day waiting period is required.

Injectable Vaccination Method: A non-negotiable 2-week waiting period is required after the booster series is completed. (Must complete the series as recommended by your veterinarian).
