Here at D and D Kennel we do require pets to have current proof of vaccinations. We do need to keep a copy of your pet's current vaccination record including rabies certificate on file as well as a copy of their license. You are welcome to bring these when you bring in your pet(s) or prior to your pet's stay you or your vet can fax us at 610-944-5728 or e-mail us at [email protected]
We require that all dogs be up to date on the following vaccinations:

We require that all cats be up to the date on the following vaccinations:
- FVRCP (Feline Distemper: Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia)

If your pet is not up to date with all required vaccinations please make sure that they do get them before their stay here at D and D Kennel. Most veterinarians as well as low cost vaccine clinics typically offer all of our required vaccinations for both dogs and cats.
Pennsylvania state law requires all dogs and cats over three months of age to be vaccinated against rabies. Pennsylvania state law requires all dogs three months of age and older to be licensed.
D and D Kennel is licensed and randomly inspected regularly by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Dog Law Enforcement.

Owners of dogs that do not meet the requirements of the each law are subject to fines by the state.
Pets must also be free of parasites (fleas, ticks, worms, etc). We do strongly encourage the use of parasite preventative products in order to keep your pets free from parasites, etc. and happy and healthy.

Any pet that is found to have fleas will receive a flea bath at your cost.

Your pet's items
Many people like to bring things from home to make their pet more comfortable during their stay such as the food they are used to eating, bed, blanket, bone, toy, treats, etc. If you would like to bring anything for your pet during his/her stay you are certainly welcome to however we do ask that all items are marked with your last name (food container, food scoop, toy, bed, blanket, etc). You are welcome to include a list of your pet's items. Please remember to make sure everything is permanently identified - that way if your pet takes their toy out during playtime or bedding gets washed, or something temporarily moved while we are cleaning - the name on it helps us make sure its gets back to its owner. We ask that everything is labeled as this is the best way to make sure the correct items are returned to the correct pet.
We apologize if your pets items do not come home - we are not responsible for lost items.
Pet Food & diet
We do provide boarding services to dogs, cats, and other small pets.
We highly recommend bringing in the food your pet normally eats. This helps your pet keep his/her regular diet, and can help in preventing an upset stomach / diarrhea from a food change. We also ask this because not all pets like eating different food either. If for some reason your pet does not eat well during boarding, we can offer him/her something else to eat. If for some reason your pet is on a special diet, has food allergies, or for any other reason should not eat anything other than the food you provide please remind as at check in. Examples of foods that may possibly be provided to your dog include Purina Pro Plan Sport All Life Stages Performance 30/20 Formula Dry Dog Food (chicken), can food, or cooked food such as eggs (with or without cheese), hamburger, rice.
Dogs that do not come in with their own food will be provided with Purina Pro Plan Sport All Life Stages Performance 30/20 Formula Dry Dog Food (chicken).
Cats and other small pets must come in with their own food.
Please provide us with the amount of food you expect your pet to eat during his/her stay. Treats and bones are allowed as well, but again please only provide the amount that you would like your pet to have during his/her stay. Food/treats/bones may be provided in reusable containers or plastic baggies. Please include any special instructions for your pets food/treats/bones. If food is divided up into individual feedings (which is preferred) please make sure they are marked for each feeding.
Pets on medication: we understand that there are pets who are on some sort of medication, vitamin, supplements, etc - please note there is a $1.00 per administration fee. Please provide us with all information on your pet's medication - name, reason needed, dosage, special instructions etc. If there is any other special care you think your pet will or may need please let us know. If your pet eats his/her medication in pill pockets, meat, cheese, can food, etc please provide it. Please only provide the amount of medication needed for your pet's stay. Please do not provide an entire bottle of medication if it is not needed. For example a pill case may be made up for his/her stay.
