At The Bark Club, animal health and safety is our #1 priority.
We require proof of current rabies vaccination when booking a grooming appointment. You can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Your dog's license tag is not proof of current rabies vaccination. We require written proof from a veterinarian of current rabies vaccination with the expiration date prior to your dog's visit with us.
Exceptions will only be considered with a signed note from your pet’s veterinarian stating the reason for not being vaccinated. Even with a signed note we retain the right to refuse grooming services to any and all unvaccinated animals at our discretion. All vaccinations must be updated in our files upon yearly renewal.
