Medical Requirements | The Doghouse - Vancouver




We require that the following vaccinations are up to date:
• distemper combination
• bordetella (aka kennel cough)
• rabies

Titre tests are accepted if the results confirm that the level is sufficient to be considered effective.

Puppies must have completed their 3rd set of puppy shots plus bordetella in order to come to daycare. Some veterinarians are now recommending that rabies be delayed a few more months so rabies can be temporarily waived with confirmation from your vet clinic. This means that puppies are generally about 4 months old before they are safe to attend daycare. Please note that this policy is for the safety of your puppy!


Other Medical Requirements


    • Male puppies 7 months or older must be neutered.
    • Female dogs in heat must not attend daycare.
    • We do not accept aggressive dogs.
