Puppies under six (6) months of age are required to have their second set of DHPP for boarding, and are required to have their Rabies vaccination around 6 months of age. It is the ongoing responsibility of the owner to provide verification that vaccinations are current – we will make every effort to remind you before your dog’s vaccinations expire.
As we believe in minimal vaccinations with our own dogs, we do not require that your dog be vaccinated for Bordetella (kennel cough), If your dog has not been vaccinated against Bordetella (kennel cough) then you will be required to sign a waiver form. If you have chosen to vaccinate for Bordetella it should be done a minimum of 14 days prior to boarding with us.
Should your dog become ill while in our care, we will not be responsible for their medical costs. If your dog shows signs of Kennel Cough then they will have to be picked up by your emergency contact.
Please note that there are many different strains of kennel cough, vaccinating against it does help reduce the chances of infection but doesn’t guarantee full immunity because of the different strains and their evolutionary cycle.
Endeavour K9 does all it can to help aid in the fight against viruses.
We have 5 SANUVAIR® Air Purification System with HEPA Filter & 2 Germicidal Lamps
We also do regular sanitization of all dog areas and surfaces that they come into contact with, by signing the Pet Care Agreement you agree that you acknowledge that Endeavour K9 does everything possible to illuminate any chance of Kennel Cough, they are not held responsible should you dog develop signs of Kennel Cough during or after your dogs stay.
- DH2PP-booster or Titer Test updated yearly
- Rabies by Law but Titer Test will be accepted
- Bordetella – If you choose to give this to your dog, it must be minimum 2 weeks prior to drop off. If you prefer not to vaccinate your dog against this, we will require a waiver signed prior to drop off.
- Annual fecal test or minimum 1 week prior to drop off. The fecal test is where you take your dogs sample to the vet. It should check for Roundworms, hookworms, whipworms, and microscopic intestinal parasites (like coccidia and Giardia). Being I will be breeding I want to make sure none of this is coming into the facility.
- Brucellosis is required for rescue dogs not born in Canada or the US.
By attending our facility you agree to avoid taking your dog to dog parks while attending Endeavour K9. Unfortunately dog parks do not require dogs to be fully vaccinated. As a result they can harbour some very nasty canine germs, some of which can be fatal to dogs (especially puppies). Parvovirus is fatal to unvaccinated dogs and does not require direct contact with an infected dog to be transmitted. The disease can spread unknowingly by people and objects that have been contaminated.
Kennel cough has also been transmitted in dog parks and can lead to some serious respiratory illness, especially in young dogs. Vaccines work quite well to protected our dogs but puppies have to be vaccinated in stages. And this can take several months.
Since we have a lot of puppies and our own breeding program we have made it a policy that students must avoid these places during your time here. We kindly request that all students respect this policy to protect our youngest attendees.
If you do attend dog parks between your dogs stay here we will require a negative fecal test before each stay.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
