Prior To Entry
All pets visiting are required to have vaccination records to confirm all are updated for Bordatella, Distemper, and Rabies prior to entry into Happy Hound Dog Resorts. We recommend a fecal exam, but it is not mandatory. The Bordatella vaccine must have been administered in the last 6 months. Ask us, and we will be pleased to contact your vet to obtain the records prior to your arrival. For a list of some local veterinarians and costs of vaccines, please click here. (ALL Jacksonville Humane Society clients will need to have records emailed to us Dogs older than 12 months must be spayed or neutered to play in dog daycare. We would be happy to discuss this with our prospective clients, but this is the recommendation from our vet partners. Dogs 4 to 12 months which are not fixed will be evaluated closely to make sure they are a good fit for the daycare floor.
