* We understand that some medical conditions and a dog's age can affect an owner's choice to vaccinate or not vaccinate their dog(s). For those reasons, we will provide and require a signed vaccination wavier (with the exception of rabies, which is legally required every three years, unless appropriate documentation is provided by your vet). We do accept titer test results in lieu of some vaccinations.
How does Boo Boo's BoneYard handle cases of kennel cough?
If your pup contracts kennel cough, our policy is to wait at least one week from the time your dog starts treatment (if recommended by your vet) before returning to daycare or boarding, assuming they are on the expected course of recovery and are no longer exhibiting symptoms. We ask that you consult with your vet before returning as well. This is due to the contagious nature of the bacteria.
The cleaners used here throughout the day, and after each play session, target and eliminate viruses and bacteria like kennel cough, Parvo, distemper, and canine influenza.
If we observe coughing while your pup is in our care, we will isolate him or her until you are able to pick them up. You will be notified immediately. We appreciate your understanding that our policy is driven by the priority we place on the overall health and wellness of all the dogs in our care.

• A negative fecal test result
• Spay/neuter over the age of 6-8 months
* We believe a dog's need to be properly socialized at an early age outweighs any potential health risks associated with having your dog(s) spayed/neutered at a time when some in the vet community say is "too early." Research shows there can be health risks associated with waiting longer to spay/neuter also. Current studies are conflicting and confusing for pet owners. More quality research is needed. In the meantime, we encourage you to do your best to educate yourself and make an informed decision based on your dog's needs and your lifestyle.
