At any given moment, a dog can become injured, especially in a dog pack environment. We take every injury very seriously, even the smallest of scratches. We require even the smallest injuries on any dog to be reported to A1K9 Academy before dropping off for any service for documentation as well as prevention from any further injury. Understanding dogs will be dogs and accidental scratches on hikes, play bites etc. do happen, you can be reassured that you will be informed immediately if your dog receives an injury during any service at A1K9 ACADEMY. As a safety precaution and for the dog’s best interest, if at any time a dog needs immediate medical attention, A1K9 Academy will contact the owner(s) immediately and inform them of the vet their dog is going to if it is not their own vet nearby the A1K9 Academy facility and we will deliver the dog to the vet at the owner’s expense.
A1K9 Academy meets all requirements for boarding & daycare facilities, and one of the ways we do this is by requiring all k9s staying with us to have up-to-date vaccination records on file. The required vaccinations for dogs include Rabies, Distemper/Lepto/Parvo, and Bordetella.
WE CANNOT ACCEPT YOUR PET FOR BOARDING, DAYCARE OR TRAINING IF WE DO NOT HAVE UP-TO-DATE VACCINATION RECORDS! VACCINATION RECORDS MUST BE PROVIDED PRIOR TO YOUR DOG’S STAY WITH US!
Even if your pet has had the vaccinations, if we do not have the records, we cannot accept your pet into our facility. To ensure a hassle-free check-in, it helps to make sure we have the vaccination records well before the date of your check-in. Vaccinations should be given at least 5-7 days prior to visiting A1K9 Academy for boarding, daycare or training. If you get a Bordetella intranasal vaccination, we cannot allow your dog into our facility for at least 24 hours. Proof of your pet’s vaccination will be kept on file. We prefer vaccination records be delivered in advance of your arrival to help simplify and speed up your check-in. Please email your pet’s vaccination records to: email@example.com with your dog’s name and “Vaccination Records” in the subject line.
While vaccinations are extremely helpful in preventing the spread of infectious disease, they do not provide 100 percent protection. Therefore, at A1K9 Academy we do our absolute best to ensure that our facility is as sanitary as possible. We follow industry standard cleaning procedures & We also train our staff to be on the lookout for any signs of illness in any of the pets in our care.
