The safety and health of your pet is our first concern. Our boarding and daycare contract includes a personality profile so we can have some basic information about your dog’s temperament and match him/her with the right playmates. All dogs in daycare must demonstrate adequate social skills and the ability to play safely. On the first stay at Dogtown, we will evaluate your dog’s interactions with other guests. If we find your dog isn’t daycare friendly, we will place him/her in his/her room/crate for the remainder of the day, except for personal walking sessions.

Prior to boarding and/or daycare, you must provide proof of the following vaccinations from your vet:

  • Bordetella – within the past 6 months (for both the intranasal and injected versions of the vaccination)
    ** Austin Dogtown does offer administration of the intranasal bordatella vaccination on-site when arranged in advance and approved by management for a cost of $12.
  • Parvovirus & Distemper- within the past 12 months
  • Rabies – proof of valid vaccination with either the shot given annually or every 3 years

All dogs 6 months or older must be spayed or neutered.

We also require that your dog be on a regular flea and tick prevention program, such as Frontline or Advantage (not flea powder or collars). For full terms and conditions, review the Austin Dogtown contract.
