Please note: Due to the new Canine Influenza Virus and vaccine-resistant kennel coughs being present in our area, we have a new request. We’re asking clients to please not have your dog in any doggie group activities for a period of two weeks before visiting us.
This is the absolute most effective way (much more so than vaccines) to be sure that no dogs check in while incubating a contagious virus.
All dogs must have proof of current vaccinations prior to entering our facility.
- Bordetella (kennel cough) – we require this every 6 months.
- DHPP (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza) – annual or every three years.
- Rabies Vaccination Certificate.
- CIV (Canine Influenza Vaccine).
Our top priority is the health and safety of your precious family member. Therefore, in order to be sure all dogs remain free of kennel cough, giardia, canine influenza, and other contagious diseases, we request that any dogs visiting us have not been to any other day care or boarding facilities, or dog parks, for a period of two weeks prior to boarding or attending day care at Two Rock Dog Ranch. This policy is to help ensure that no one checks in while incubating a virus.
In addition to the vaccinations, we require an annual giardia test for boarding and day care dogs.
“Giardia is a common, microscopic (intestinal) parasite that commonly affects humans, dogs, and cats. Common signs and symptoms of Giardia infection (in both humans and pets) are diarrhea, gas, abdominal discomfort, nausea, and vomiting. However, it is possible to be infected and have no signs or symptoms of illness.”
You will need to provide your veterinarian with a fresh sample of your dog’s stool for the giardia test. If the test is positive, medication to treat giardia may be prescribed by your veterinarian. Your dog may need to be retested before entering our facility. We require a negative giardia lab result to be provided to us annually.
We prefer that your vet email your dog’s most recent vaccination records and Giardia test results directly to us in advance of your dog’s visit.
Dogs must be free of fleas when entering our facility. We ask that you apply a topical flea treatment (such as Advantage or Frontline) to your dog, or give your dog on an oral flea treatment (such as Comfortis tablets) prior to his/her visit with us. If fleas are found on your dog while boarding or attending day care at Two Rock Dog Ranch, we will first bathe your dog to remove the parasites and then apply a topical flea treatment in order to prevent fleas from spreading to our other guests. The bath plus $15 for the topical will be added to your bill.
Please note: All dogs age six months and older must be spayed or neutered prior to entering our facility.
Medications for guest dogs
If your dog will require prescription medication during his or her stay with us, please let us know when you make reservations or at check-in. We can administer the following types of medication for your dog:
- Pills and capsules
- Eye drops/ointment
- Ear cleansing/drops
Please provide specific instructions, along with the necessary medications. A $2 daily fee is applied for administering medication to your dog.
We appreciate your dog being on a leash in our parking area and lobby. In consideration of our boarding guests, please do not walk your dog near the fenced play yards. Our facility is surrounded by private property — please refrain from exploring the grounds outside the parking area. Please drive slowly — no more than 10 mph — on the driveway.
