+Health, safety and vaccination requirements

Safety is of the utmost importance at Lucy’s Doggy Daycare and Spa. For the health and safety of our guests, dogs must have the following:

  • To qualify for interactive daycare dogs are required to be spayed or neutered and temperament tested. (Pups younger than 8-months-old needn’t be spayed or neutered.) – Dogs not eligible for interactive daycare may still board and will have a minimum of four and up to six 15 minute leash free spacious back yard rotations.
  • Proof of current vaccinations including distemper/parvo and rabies (every year or three years depending on the vaccinations your veterinarian administers) and a 6-month Bordetella.
  • If vaccinations are not current, we require a 5-day waiting period for vaccinations to become effective. The waiting period begins the day after the vaccination is administered.
  • Grooming requirements are same as above, however, we only require Bordetella annually.
  • We do not accept home vaccinations, hand written vaccinations, sticker books, pet passports, breeder vaccines and require all vaccinations be administered by a licensed veterinarian.
  • Puppies must be over the age of 16 weeks and have had their puppy boosters. We require 3 distemper/parvo boosters, a current rabies vaccine and a 6-month bordetella. Once they receive their last booster, there is a 5-day waiting period before they can come join in the fun.
  • In the event that your dog does not receive the distemper/parvo or rabies vaccinations (for health reasons/immunity), a “titer test” will need to be performed by your veterinarian. There is no “titer test” for the bordetella, and will need to administered as required. A copy of the “titer test” results is required before coming in for any services.
  • Lucy’s highly recommends the Bivalent Canine Influenza Vaccine (H3N2 and H3N8) yearly. Please note that initially this is a boostered vaccine (boosters are 3-4 weeks apart).
  • The following breeds are not eligible for interactive daycare: Pit Bull or Pit Bull mixes, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, American Bull Dog, Shar Pei, Dogo Argentino, Cane Corso, Presa Canario, Fila Brasileiro, Ovtcharka, as well as dogs mixed with these breeds. Wolves or Wolf hybrids are not permitted for any services.
    Dogs diagnosed with Heartworms are not permitted in interactive daycare.
  • Dogs undergoing Heartworm treatment are not permitted for any services. Once the treatment for Heartworms is complete, veterinary recommendation is to wait 6 months before testing for Heartworms to avoid a false positive. Once your pup is clear of Heartworms, they are permitted to use the services at Lucy’s.
  • Non-spayed females that are in Heat or pregnant females are not permitted for any services.
  • Lucy’s is a flea-free environment. If a dog has fleas or other external parasites, the dog will be bathed at the owner’s expense.
  • Due to our primary concern with each dog’s health and safety, we recommend dogs with the following health conditions board with a veterinary hospital for specialized care: seizures, diabetes and dogs currently undergoing chemotherapy.
