All dogs must pass a temperament assessment in order to be accepted for daycare and boarding. Dogs must show no aggression towards other dogs, humans, toys, or space. Food aggression isn't a concern for daycare because dogs will only be fed in their private kennels. If you are boarding multiple dogs who you want to stay all together in a suite then they will be fed together and there must be no food aggression. 

Male dogs must be neutered to keep competition and aggression levels at bay. Female dogs are not allowed when in heat for the same reasons. Male puppy are allowed un-nuetered up until 8 months which is when most males will start to show signs of aggression/competitive behaviors. 


Flea & Tick preventatives are 100% required. Dogs should be treated weeks before admittance to ensure there are no flea or flea larva still present. Dogs must be continuously treated for fleas and ticks. If fleas are found we will treat the dogs at the owners expense. Please do not apply topical ointments the day of daycare. Other dogs can ingest this during play making them sick and making the ointments less affected for the treated dog. 


We require dogs to be vaccinated with: 






We also highly recommend:


Lyme vaccination

Fights canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza all of which are extremely contagious and deadly. 



There are two types of Bordetella or “kennel cough” vaccines, a nasal spray and an injectable. We recommend the injectable followed 2-4 weeks later with a booster shot. We will accept dogs who used the nasal spray however keep in mind if you choose to use the nasal spray your dog must wait 10 days after receiving the spray to be accepted at Bopp Farm Doggy Daycare. We do this for the safety of all the dogs. Also keep in mind this vaccine needs to be renewed after 1 year.
