- A copy of current vaccinations are required to be provided to us to keep on file (see below for definition of current per 2011 AAHA Canine Vaccine Guidelines). We may REQUIRE a verbal confirmation of expiration dates in order to secure a reservation (these will be then be matched up to the vaccination records provided at check-in). Providing us a copy of your vaccination records PRIOR to check-in is RECOMMENDED. This can be done by mailing them, dropping them off, or scanning and emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org before your boarding check-in date. WE WILL REFUSE TO BOARD YOUR DOG IF OUR VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS ARE NOT MET. This is NOT negotiable, it is for both the safety of your dog and the other dogs boarding with us.
Doolin Acres Kennel may need to contact your veterinarian to determine what form of Bordetella vaccination you received to determine whether it is current.
