Unfortunately, this is not always possible, so boarding a dog can be a very good alternative. It is important that your dog feels comfortable and that you have a good feeling about it.

The veterinarian issues the vaccination certificate. There are so-called core vaccinations, which are absolutely mandatory. In addition, puppies are given basic immunization against rabies, leptospirosis, parvovirus, distemper and contagious liver inflammation. These diseases are either life-threatening for the dog itself or can be transmitted to humans, such as rabies. Therefore the vaccination has to be refreshed regularly.

Non-core or Elective vaccinations are based on the respective risk of infection to which an animal is exposed. For example, increased contact with other dogs in kennels is such an increased risk. However, this has nothing to do with the quality or hygiene of the facility.
