Smith Ranch Kennels is a small facility and we tend to fill up quickly,
especially over holidays, so reservations are a must. It is best to call or email
as far in advance as possible. We would love to have your dog stay here with us,
so please make arrangements early.
a safety and health factor, Smith Ranch Kennels requires that all dogs have their
current annual vaccines: Rabies, Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza,
and Bordetella (prevents canine cough). You will need to bring a copy of your
dog's current vaccination record with you or you can fax
or email it in prior to your dog's stay.
are located in the midst of 25 acres of South Texas countryside and do our best
to keep our kennels tick and flea-free but where there are dogs, those pesky little
critters will occasionally show up. In order for us to control the situation,
should your dog show up sporting ticks or fleas, we will need to administer treatment
for which there will be a charge. It is a good idea to use a tick and flea preventative,
such as FRONTLINE, REVOLUTION or whatever your veterinarian suggests prior to
boarding your dog. In fact, in South Texas, it is a good idea to use tick, flea
and heartworm preventatives year round.
