What vaccines are required for daycare?
Vaccinations: No exceptions! All puppies 5 months and younger must have proof of at least 2 DHPP vaccines, updated canine cough vaccine (Bordatella), and negative fecal test, all at least 10 days prior to attendance. All dogs 5 months and older must have proof of a current DHPP, Rabies, and current on the semi-annual (every 6 months) canine cough vaccine (Bordatella), and a negative fecal, which requires a 2-day wait after updating before attendance. Though not mandatory, we also strongly recommend that your pet receive the Leptospirosis vaccine and 2-part canine bivalent influenza vaccine.
Fleas, Ticks, and Parasites: All dogs that play and board at SPS & DS must be flea, tick, and parasite free. Thus, any pet that is seen with any of the fore- mentioned problems will be treated at the owner's expense.

Drop off must be completed no later than 10 A.M. and pick up to occur anytime during our normal hours of operation. We also require a 4-hour minimum to see how your dog interacts with the pack.

After the evaluation, we will verbally explain how your dog did on their first day.

What are groooming vaccine requirements?
To maintain a safe, comfortable environment, we require all pets to be current on their rabies vaccinations and to wait at least 48 hours after any vaccinations before checking in. Proof of rabies vaccination in the form of paperwork is required. The waiting period helps to ensure your pet isn't sore at the injection site, which can cause irritability or lethargy. This waiting period also is to prevent stressing a pet who may be experiencing an unexpected allergic reaction from a vaccine/vaccination.

Yes, all employees are certified in dog CPR and First Aid. There is a Medical kit on site that can be used if needed. We take pride in our working relationship with South Coastal Animal Health which is located less than a half mile down Rt. 18.
