Participation Requirements

The safety of all Schoolhouse Dogs is our top priority.

Any dog wishing to attend must:

  • Be up to date on the vaccines listed below.

  • Have a negative fecal sample in the last 6 months.

  • Be receiving regular monthly heartworm and intestinal parasite preventative medication which covers at minimum hookworms and roundworms. A medication that also covers whipworms is highly recommended.

  • Be receiving regular (monthly or according medication label) flea and tick preventative medication.

  • Have no history of aggression with dogs or people.

  • Be spayed or neutered (unless age restricts this). Puppies must be finished with their puppy vaccines to attend.

  • Be crate trained (for nap time and/or overnights). If they are not, please book well in advance to reserve the bedroom.

  • Pass a "meet and greet" evaluation at the daycare. (We are changing this to occur during the dog's first day).

  • Have had no signs of coughing, sneezing, vomit, or diarrhea within the last 48 hours.

  • Owners must submit the vaccine records and application below at least 24 hours prior to their first scheduled day.


  • Rabies

  • Distemper combo (distemper, hepatitis/adenovirus, parvovirus, +/- parainfluenza*)

  • Leptospirosis

  • Bordetella +/- parainfluenza*

  • Optional: Influenza (canine flu)

*Please note: Parainfluenza is required, but may be given as part of the distemper combo or in combination with bordetella. No vaccine is fully protective for kennel cough however, vaccination for bordetella and parainfluenza greatly reduces the chance of infection and reduces the severity of disease in pets that contract kennel cough.
