Before their stay at AlphaDog Lodging, all dogs participate in a 4 hour temperament assessment. An outdoor environment is great for most socialized dogs, but some are more comfortable with a different kind of play!
- Copies of up to date vaccinations are required (DHPP (or some variant), Rabies, Bordatella, and Canine Influenza) before your dog's first visit. We also require documentation of regular flea & tick treatment as well as a negative fecal test testing for Giardia & OVA Parasites from within the last six months. These protocols help protect every pup in our care!
- Puppies must be at least 4 months old and have required vaccinations. Please inquire for more information.
If a dog has been diagnosed with a communicable disease (i.e., Giardia or Kennel cough), or has a recent injury/surgery AlphaDog Lodging will require veterinary documentation clearing them for play. AlphaDog reserves the right to make the final decision as to whether or not a dog is permitted to visit and join in on group play.
- We are now taking intact dogs under 18 months/1.5 years of age! Please inquire via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or read our FAQ for more information.
When coming to AlphaDog Lodging, each dog should wear a properly fitted, buckle collar with a name tag. We remove all harnesses, pinch collars, martingale collars, and so on. For everyone's safety, all dogs must also be on a leash when entering/exiting the facility.
We are following all current county guidelines for COVID here at AlphaDog. Masking is, at this time, optional for clients.
