Rabies - A rabies vaccination is first given to a dog at 4 months of age. A booster shot is then given one year after that. After the booster is given, usually the Rabies vaccination is given every 3 years.
Distemper - Distemper may appear on your records as just that, or in a combo shot such as DHPP or DHLPP. These shots cover canine distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza and parvovirus. A series of shots are given as a puppy, then it is an annual booster.
Bordetella - There are three ways of administering the Bordetella vaccine: intranasal (in the nose), intravenous (by shot) and orally (in the mouth). Puppies can receive their first vaccination at 8 weeks of age. It is recommended that all dogs are vaccinated at least a week before boarding.
