Vaccine Requirements

Dog Party USA is very strict on shot requirements for the protection of all our canine clientele. We require the following shots:


Must be given by a licensed veterinarian. As of January 1, 2010, rabies shots given after that date will be good for 3 years.


This is a combination shot, usually containing Distemper, Hepatitis, Lepto, Parvo, and Parainfluenza. Different vets have different variations on this shot, so be sure to inquire. Some are good for a year, some for 3 years.


This is for canine cough, sometimes called “kennel cough.” We require that your dog be vaccinated for Bordetella every six months. Most vets use an intra-nasal vaccine, but if your vet uses an injectable vaccine, we will honor it for a year. We will need written proof that it is injectable.

Canine Influenza Vaccine

We no longer require the canine influenza vaccine, but we still recommend that you have your dog vaccinated for canine influenza to help build “community immunity” and to assist in preventing future outbreaks of the disease.


Are your dogs’ shots out of date and you just can’t get them in to your vet at a convenient time? We have arranged with Lyon Veterinary Hospital to take our client dogs that need updated shots and have them vaccinated there. Let us know if this is a service you would like to use. The charge is $20 for delivery and pick-up.
