We have a 72 hour waiting period after vaccinations are administered prior to visiting Pappy’s. We ask that puppies and kittens receive their last set of vaccinations a minimum of 7 days before visiting Pappy’s. We currently do not require the Leptospirosis vaccination. 

Does Pappy’s have any age requirements?

Our age requirement is 4 months for daycare, grooming, and lodging services. Dogs aged 4 months or older are welcome to participate in our daycare program. Dogs aged 6 months or older must be spayed or neutered in order to participate.

Can I tour Pappy’s before bringing my dog?

Absolutely! We love giving tours. We do recommend stopping by for a tour Mon. – Fri. from 10 am to 5 pm and Sat. & Sun. from 10 am to 2 pm. However, we do suggest that you leave Fido at home if you plan to tour our facility.

Why does my dog need a Bordetella vaccination every 6 months when my vet says every year is fine?

We require the Bordetella vaccinations every 6 months for your dog’s health and safety. This policy was created from recommendations by our veterinary partners. Due to the increased exposure to other dogs that your dog will experience at our enrichment centers, an additional Bordetella shot is a precautionary measure to ensure they stay protected and healthy. Please note, oral Bordetella vaccinations are valid for a year. 

Does Pappy’s have any leash requirements?

We strongly recommend you leash your dog while in our facility for your dog’s safety.

Does Pappy’s have any breed restrictions?

Yes, we are unable to care for Cani Corsi.
