What Vaccines Does My Dog Need Before Boarding?

Keeping Your Dog Safe & Healthy!

It's always important to ensure your four-legged friend is safe and healthy, especially if they're spending the day with other furry friends. That's why it's essential to know what vaccinations your pup needs before boarding at a pet care facility. Veterinarians typically recommend that all canines receive the following shots before visiting a daycare or boarding facility:


DHLPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza, and Parvovirus) vaccinations are the primary core vaccines recommended to protect dogs against some of the most common and dangerous diseases that can affect them.


Rabies is a serious disease that affects the nervous system of warm-blooded animals — including dogs. The rabies vaccine is required by law in many states and helps protect your pet from this fatal disease. The rabies vaccine is initially injected as a single dose, with a booster every 1-3 years, depending on the area.

Canine Influenza (H3N8 and H3N2)

Canine influenza, also known as "dog flu," is a highly contagious respiratory infection that can have serious health consequences. Pups that frequently visit doggie daycare and boarding facilities are at higher risk for developing canine influenza because of their increased exposure to other dogs, so it is imperative to follow up on this vaccine. Vaccinating for both virus strains is recommended.


This vaccine helps protect your pet against kennel cough, a contagious respiratory infection that can be contracted at the kennels or daycare. It is usually given as a single dose and then repeated every 6-12 months, depending on the risk and exposure of your pet.

The Bottom Line

Vaccines are important to keep your dog and the environment safe while participating in group activities like daycare or boarding. Keeping up with their vaccination schedule will help ensure that all guests can enjoy a fun and safe experience at any pet care facility! Remember, each pet is unique, so it's best to consult your veterinarian to determine which vaccinations are suitable for your dog.
