Our top priority at Bekkers Pet Care is making sure all of our boarders (cat or dog) are happy and healthy during their stay with us, and that they have fun along the way. We also realize that no matter how long the stay, owners want to check up on their pets. We are happy to provide any updates over email on how your pet is doing throughout their stay at Bekkers! Below are just a handful of the boarders we have come through the kennel, all enjoying their stays.

At Bekkers Pet Care, we require all of our canine boarders to have their Bordetella vaccine (along with Rabies and and Distemper). The Bordetella vaccine is given to prevent the highly contagious respiratory disease most commonly known as “kennel cough”. As the dogs at Bekkers are in close quarters and allowed to play with each other, it is incredibly important to prevent this disease from occurring and spreading!

The Bordetella vaccine (named for the bacteria that most commonly causes kennel cough) is not a core vaccine given by veterinarians, so if you plan on having your dog boarded, please make sure to book an appointment with your vet so your dog can receive the vaccine. Proof of vaccination can either be uploaded online when submitting a boarding request, or brought in hard copy to the Bekkers Pet Care office.
