PUPPY PROGRAM 6 weeks to 12 months old
We take our Puppy Program very seriously.
We welcome puppies without requiring them to be fixed!
The type of care will depend on the age of your puppy. Very young puppies have their own private play time, get tons love, stimulation, and activity from the team. Once a puppy has reached the required completed vaccinations for Bordetella and at least 2/3 completed rounds of DHPP/DHLPP they get more freedom. We do crate train all our puppies, they have daily naps and lunch. We do ask for Rabies to be completed once the puppy reaches 6 months of age.
You and your puppy attend a Meet & Greet, and puppies must undergo a Temperament Test to ensure a safe fit in our facility.
Vaccination of puppies
Puppy shots are one of the crucial steps in assuring the puppy will have a healthy and happy puppyhood. At Sitting Pretty, we do board very young dogs and there are risks when your dog is not fully vaccinated. We go to great lengths to ensure the health and safety of all the dogs. Very young dogs might need to be kept separated from the other dogs.
Puppies are required to have completed vaccinations for Bordetella and at least 2/4 completed rounds of DHPP or DHLPP.
Fecal: Current in their 4 months, is required.
Rabies is often completed at a later date and is required once the puppy reaches 6 months of age.
Flea medication, other than flea collar.
Spayed/neutered after 9 months.
*Dogs whose Bordetella vaccines were last given more than 12 months ago will be required to have the intranasal vaccine (at least 72 hours) or the injectable vaccine (at least 7 days) prior to the date of service or check-in.

Boarding an unaltered dog
If you have a puppy, you’ve come to the right place for bathing! We are very knowledgeable when it comes to dealing with special needs while grooming.
Tip: Touching your puppies’ paws and ears frequently
can help to make your dog more comfortable when
it’s time for ear cleaning and nail trimming.
Unspayed females or unneutered males
We will take into account boarding and/or offer daycare to unspayed females as long as they are not in season, as well as unneutered males as long as they are respectful and responsive to commands.
Here is our rule of thumb when it comes to considering your dog:
if you have a puppy that is too young to be altered
if you have an AKC registered show dog that is currently showing
if there is a medical reason, such as seizures
We consider an unaltered dog a special needs dog
and we charge as such.
