  • Tours to check out the facilities are by appointment Monday through Friday 11am-2pm.
  • Copies of up to date vaccinations are required (Rabies, Distemper,  Hepatitis, Para Influenza, Parvo, Bordatella, and Canine Influenza) before your dog’s first visit. This protocol protects your dog and the other dogs at AlphaDog Lodging.
  • A documentation of regular flea & tick treatment.
  • Puppies must be at least 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.
