At Autumglo, the safety of your pet is our top priority. We make sure your dog is comfortable and given the best care while you’re away. We carefully follow all standard of care requirements mandated by Wisconsin State Legislature, including dog vaccination requirements. 

To keep your pet safe from contagious illnesses, we require all overnight canine guests to have up-to-date dog vaccinations prior to arriving at our Ozaukee County pet boarding lodge

As part of our Southeast Wisconsin pet boarding resources, we’ve outlined the required and recommended vaccines your dog needs to have the best experience at Autumglo.

Required Dog Vaccinations in Wisconsin

Is the Bordetella Vaccine Required in Wisconsin?


The Bordetella vaccine injected into the nose of a dog, it protects dogs from what’s known as “Kennel Cough” in communities across Wisconsin.

  • Bordetella: A deadly disease caused by one or more virus & bacteria.
  • Is the Rabies Vaccine Required in Wisconsin?


    Backed by state law, the rabies vaccine is required to be taken no later than 5 months of age.

    • Rabies: A fatal disease which attacks brain cells.
    What is the DHLPP Vaccine?


    Essentially 8 different vaccinations in one, the DHLPP vaccine must be started around 8 weeks of age and boost every 3-4 weeks until 4 months age, then once on a yearly basis. This vaccine protects against:

    • Distemper: A paramyxovirus similar to human measles. 
    • Hepatitis: An adenovirus causing liver, eye or kidney failure.
    • Parainfluenza: A potentially deadly virus known, also known as the tracheobronchitis disease or “Kennel Cough”. 
    • Parvovirus: A virus that can kill dogs in less than 72 hours.
    • Leptospirosis: A bacteria capable of causing kidney failure & death.
    Is the Lyme Vaccine Required in Wisconsin?


    It is recommended (not required) you vaccinate your dog for Lyme disease since our outdoor area does pose the risk of harboring ticks.

    By keeping your dogs up to date on their Lyme disease vaccinations, you can sign them up for outdoor play time stress-free!

    • Lyme Disease: Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria is transmitted by ticks & can lead to kidney failure & death.

    From Bordetella to Rabies and Lyme Disease, dogs are at constant risk of contracting deadly illnesses when they are not vaccinated. For this reason, pet owners cannot schedule a spot for their dogs without having state required shots. It is the personal responsibility of the owner to vaccinate their pets and the responsibility of a pet boarding facility to protect the health of all dogs and cats present.
