What Shots do Dogs Need for Boarding?

What Shots do Dogs Need for Boarding?

If you plan of boarding your dog there will be vaccines that it requires to board. Today, the East Orlando Animal Hospital vets explain the shots that your dog needs for boarding.

Vaccine Requirements

A puppy must be at least 10 weeks old before attending doggy daycare or boarding. In addition, they need to receive several vaccinations. Before you bring in your puppy, let’s talk about these vaccinations so you’re prepared. While not all vaccinations are legally mandated in every state, the Orlando team strongly encourages all pet owners to get their cats and dogs vaccinated. 

Distemper Vaccinations

Distemper vaccinations should be administered to puppies at least 10 weeks of age. Vaccination against Distemper should be given annually to your dog for one to three years as he or she grows. 

Bordetella Vaccinations

For puppies over 10 weeks of age, Bordetella vaccinations are crucial every 12 months. Your veterinarian likely won’t automatically suggest or do this for you; be sure to request it at your next visit. To prevent kennel cough, you should request Bordetella. 


Before attending a dog daycare or boarding facility, dogs should be vaccinated against Rabies. It can be administered liberally between every year or every three years.

Canine Influenza And Leptospirosis

Dogs boarding at boarding facilities will also need vaccines for canine influenza and leptospirosis. It is required to administer shots several days in advance of the planned initial boarding date. Make sure to bring in your records as proof that your dog has been vaccinated. Before going to a boarding facility, a dog must also be flea and tick-free.
