Pet Inoculations 

For the safety of all our canine students, a recent wellness exam and the following inoculations (age-appropriate), or a letter from your veterinarian verifying that your dog is healthy and free of disease, are required to attend any class.  Updated information will be requested as needed:


  • DHPP (Distemper, Adenovirus, Parvovirus)   ​
  • Rabies
  • A recent wellness exam by a licensed veterinarian, including fecal exam for parasites
  • ​Bordatella (strongly recommended)


The first DHPP for puppies needs to be given at least 10 days prior to attending class.  

Bordetella should be given at least 7 days prior to coming to class.


NOTE:  Follow your veterinarian's recommendations for an inoculation schedule that is appropriate for your pet.
