Dog Vaccination Requirements

Dogs that enter the Seeing Eye Dogs facility will need to have a current vaccination for parvovirus, distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza virus and bordetella bronchiseptica.  These vaccination certificates will be  collected (via email) by KPA faculty and sent to the Seeing Eye Dogs Veterinarian prior to workshop one.  If dogs require boosters during the DTP course these updated certificates would also need to be collected.
