Requirements To Board

Dog Requirements
Canine Country Club staff will be happy to assess the condition of older dogs to determine their suitability for boarding. For your pet’s comfort and safety, if a dog is determined to be at risk, we may recommend that your dog would receive optimal care at a veterinary facility, an isolated environment or in an environment with 24-hour supervision.

In order to board with the Canine Country Club your puppy must be at least 4 months old, weigh at least 20 pounds and have a full series of Canine Distemper. This precaution is taken due to the increased susceptibility of puppies to disease and as a protection for our older guests. Puppies must be at least 6 months of age, spayed or neutered, weigh at least 20 pounds and have proof of all vaccinations to participate in doggy day care.


Vaccine manufacturers very strongly recommend your dog avoid social situations up to 24 hours after receiving vaccines. Proof of all vaccinations is required for boarding and participation in doggy day care and must be provided to our front desk staff at the time of, or prior to, your pet’s check-in.

For your convenience, records can be faxed in advance to:
