Vaccination Requirements

Accepted Record Formats:

We require you to provide a copy of your dog's most current vax records to us. We understand you may not have them at the time of registration, or that the current records may need to be updated prior to their start date, either because the next puppy booster or annual vaccines will become due. Our requirement is to have these on file by the time your dog enters our programs. If either of the above scenarios are at play, please set a reminder for yourself to email these to us prior to your dog visiting RMDT as they cannot enter the building without them on file.

Records may be sent via email in a .pdf, .png or .jpg format. Ensure full page is in view and legible and that it meets our vaccination format requirements. We do not accept hard copies at this time.
  • We accept records on veterinary or rescue group letterhead.
  • If records are coming from the breeder, the stickers from the vaccination vials must be included. If you don't have your puppy just yet, please request that your breeder include these.
  • Puppies are not required to have completed their 3-round booster series to register or begin their program, however we do require they remain on schedule with their boosters throughout their program and not lapse. When your puppy receives their next round, please pass the updated record on to your trainer via email.
  • Handwritten records without vial stickers are not accepted and we do not make exceptions.

This is to protect our clients to the very best of our ability. While rare, these illnesses are life-threatening and our clients appreciate our diligence in minimizing these risks. Thank you for understanding!
