Common Sense Boarding & Vaccination Policies
Live, Modified Live and Attenuated Vaccines can carry a viral load that is capable of mutating and/or shedding for 45 days after administration, increasing the possibility of passing a contagious cold. Boosters also are vaccines that carry a viral load.
Common Sense says that if a vaccine has the capability of shedding for 45 days after administration, then the dogs should not be boarded within 45 days of said vaccination
IN ADDITION – Dogs that board elsewhere and dogs that go to daycare can pick up a cold and not show symptoms for two weeks.
Common Sense says because contagious “colds” incubate, we are asking for a 14-day lead period between boarding elsewhere, going to daycare or frequenting dog parks, in order to stay with us.
Our Common Sense Boarding and Vaccination Policies are designed to offer level best to protect your family members from contagions. It is impossible to completely prevent canine colds, though we believe our protocols will help to “stack the deck” in your dogs favor.
DEPOSITS: We will be asking for a non-refundable deposit* of $100 for the months of June thru September. Deposit will be credited on your invoice. Cancellations can be made up to 14 days previous to reservation without charges.
*This new deposit requirement does not apply to our frequent flyers and to those of you who have been bringing your furry family members for years. We appreciate your trust in us, and know that you care about the struggles small businesses go through to keep your family safe and to remain here for you.
Please call with any questions.
Thank you for keeping all of our boarding pets safe!
