Vaccination Policy

Vaccinations are require for all dogs staying at the Ranch.

After most vaccines are administered, immunity is not immediate; it takes about five to ten days to become effective.  So please have your dog vaccinated at least 10 days prior to the date of check in. Please do not take your dog to a dog park at least two weeks prior to boarding in order to help reduce possible exposure to Kennel Cough or other viruses.
  • Up-to-date Rabies

    The Certificate MUST INCLUDE the following information:
    • Your Name
    • Your dog’s name
    • Date of Vaccination
    • Date Vaccine Expires
    • Veterinarian’s Name and Signature (or stamp)
    • Manufacturer of Vaccine
    • Lot/Serial Number
    • Lot Expiration
  • DAPP vaccines

  • Bordetella vaccine administered within 6 months of boarding.

    Please note:
    The Bordetella Vaccine may prevent or reduce the chances of your dog getting infected with “Kennel Cough” or lessen the severity of illness if infected, but some variants may be resistant to the vaccine and your dog may still get the virus.
  • Leptospirosis Vaccination

  • Canine Influenza Vaccination

    Please note:

    Because of recent outbreaks in the Los Angeles area of Leptospirosis as well as Canine Influenza, we are now requiring all dogs coming to stay with us to be fully vaccinated for both in an effort to try and stop the spread of these contagious infections and to prevent exposure to your dog. Both of these vaccines are a 2-shot series that will need to be spaced 4-5 weeks apart to take full effect.
    We are highly encouraging all of our clients to begin the process of both vaccination series right away. On Monday, November 15th, we will only be accepting dogs that have been fully vaccinated for Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza (both injections).

What do I need to bring?

What shouldn’t I bring for my dog?
No bedding, pig hooves, food dishes or toys.
My dog is on medications. Will you make sure he receives them everyday?
Absolutely. If your dog is currently taking any medications or supplements, we are happy to administer them free of charge.
Can I visit my dog while he’s staying at Canyon View?
Of course. Just be sure to call first for an appointment.
Can my whole family be a part of the training lessons?
Yes, in fact we encourage it.
My dog has a very loving personality – will training break his spirit?
Absolutely not. Training simply brings out the best in your dog and helps correct unwanted behavior, while maintaining all the qualities you loved about your dog in the first place.
Can you teach an old dog new tricks?
Yes. It’s all about changing old habits and creating new ones.
Will my dog remember me?
In a heartbeat! No matter how much fun your dog has at Canyon View, nothing can replace the sight of Mom & Dad.
