FAQs

Day care healthy opportunities to socialize dogs with other dog pals of various sizes. Good socialization generally helps mellow a dog’s temperament.

Not every dog is well-suited to a daycare setting. Dogs with health or mobility challenges, older dogs and young puppies might find the environment overwhelming and unpleasant. Daycares are also inappropriate for undersocialized dogs, and do not provide the right setting to help over-reactive pets. If a dog is an excellent candidate for a daycare setting, there still may be some possible pitfalls outlined below:

Vaccinations

Yes, we do screen all our attendees and require proof of vaccinations. However, things like kennel cough (think “doggy cold”), and fleas can be spread rapidly through a close-knit group of dogs. The risk is similar to what your pet would be exposed to at a dog park, but good quality daycares do their best to clean and disinfect all the areas where the dogs play.

Kennel Cough

Kennel cough is a fairly common in dogs. People tend to associate it with dogs who either are being kenneled and in shelter environments. this is not entirely true, at any given time if your dog is in contact with an infected dog may potential infection occur.Kennel cough is caused by an airborne virus, which is highly contagious.

Does your dog have kennel cough?

The incubation period is approximately 5-7 days, this means your dog will not show symptoms of illness following exposure to the virus. Not every dog will contract kennel cough if being exposed, having a healthy immune system is key to not getting the virus.

SYMPTOMS

A harsh dry cough, retching, sneezing, snorting, gagging or vomiting in response to light pressing of the trachea or after excitement or exercise. Retching, sneezing, snorting, gagging or vomiting in response to light pressing of the trachea or after excitement or exercise. The presence of a fever varies from case to case.

SOLUTIONS

There is a vaccine (Bordatella) for Kennel Cough, having said this it is often not always effective in preventing infection. Over the years many strains and mutations of the virus have developed, this means the vaccine may or may not work depending on the strain your dog comes in contact with.It is the same as in human flu shot vaccines, yearly they develop a shot based on the strains they think are more prevalent. This all means that your dog may still be at risk of kennel cough.
