Requirements for Dogs
Rabies (one or three year protocol), Distemper combination (one or three year protocol), Bordetella (annually), Canine Influenza Virus “CIV” H3N2 (one year protocol)- Chicago Only, negative fecal test (annually). We do suggest the Bordetella and fecal test every 6 months for our guests, but will defer to your veterinarian’s requirement. Our minimum requirement is once per year.
We ask that you have your vet fax us the proof of the vaccines and negative fecal test, or we can call them for you to request a copy.
We also require all our guests to be on heartworm and flea/tick preventative year round.
No. We do accept intact pets*. However, if your dog is over seven months of age, he/she is ineligible for playgroups and must have individual playtime instead.
*Please note unspayed females who are in season cannot visit Paradise 4 Paws during that time.
No. Guests are assessed based on their individual temperament.
In general, we do not require an interview. The registration forms ask for a behavior history. If we have any questions about your dog’s behavior, we may ask to have an interview or pre-stay assessment.
If your dog is people aggressive and we cannot approach him, we cannot properly care for him, so he could not stay with us. However, if your dog gets along with people and just doesn’t get along with other dogs, we can accommodate your dog and provide individual play times in lieu of group play.
Each dog is treated as an individual – we determine how to best accommodate each guest with the health, safety and happiness of everyone in mind.
Requirements for Cats
Rabies (one or three year protocol); Feline Distemper combination (FVRCP) (one or three year protocol); Feline Leukemia (only for cats allowed outdoors); and a negative fecal test (annually for indoor cats, every six months if cat is allowed outdoors). We ask that you have your vet fax us the proof of the vaccines and negative fecal test, or we can call them for you to request a copy. We also require all our guests to be on flea/tick preventative year round.
Yes! Cats must have a flea/tick preventative applied within 30 days of their stay at Paradise 4 Paws for their own protection.
