  • Tours to check out the facilities are by appointment Monday through Friday 11am-2pm and by appointment 2 weekends a month.
  • Copies of up to date vaccinations are necessary (Rabies, Distemper, Bordatella, hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Rabies para influenza Parvo) before your dog’s first visit, this protects your dog and the other dogs at AlphaDog Lodging.
  • A documented regular flea & tick program.
  • Puppies must be 6 months old and spayed or neutered.
  • If a dog has been diagnosed with a communicable disease (i.e., Giardia or Kennel cough). AlphaDog Lodging will require veterinary documentation proving a clean health record after treatment.
  • When coming to AlphaDog Lodging, each dog should wear a properly fitted, flat collar and for everyone’s safety, be on a leash when entering and exiting the facility.
