Yes. In order to safeguard the health of every guest we require that every pet have the required vaccinations prior to their visit. See our FAQ For All Pet Parents » 
What food will be served?

The most common cause of canine diarrhea is an abrupt change of diet, so please bring your dog’s or puppy’s food. Please prepackage it in zip-top bags, one serving per bag.We will provide our dog food as an optional service. Most dogs do very well on our food because we serve a blend of food that is generally easy on the stomach and digestive system.If your pet is staying with us for an extended visit and you want us to provide our food, then call our Customer Service Team and we will be happy to provide you with complimentary portions of our food so you can start the transition before arrival to avoid any discomfort with an abrupt change of diet.
