Canine Guest Guidelines

For the well being and comfort of all of our guests, we have the following requirements:



Current Distemper Combination (Da2PP)
Current Rabies
Current Kennel Cough (Bordetella)
Current Canine Influenza

Intestinal Parasite Control

Annual Intestinal Parasite Screens (negative fecal floatation tests) are required. Canine guests should also be on a monthly parasite preventative such as Heartgard or Iverhart.

Flea and Tick Control

All dogs must be on a year-round monthly flea and tick product such as Frontline, Revolution, Bravecto, or Vectra or at a minimum applied within the last 2 weeks. All guests are expected to be free of any evidence or external parasites or RVVS will immediately apply appropriate treatment at the client’s expense.

Spay and Neuter

Dogs staying at River Valley Groom and Board that are 8 months of age or older must be spayed or neutered.


For the safety of all guests and team members at River Valley Groom and Board, we cannot accept cats with significant aggressive or anxious tendencies.
