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 class:


  • 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.  

Puppies and dogs should be friendly or neutral to other dogs and people when in class.  If you are not sure if your puppy or dog will fit well in a class environment, please contact us before registering.  

We want all our students to be successful!
