        Canine Flu 2023 - Upper Respiratory Illness

        There are a lot of unknowns about this newest canine illness. We should all do our best to work to avoid the spread of this disease by following some basic recommendations:

        • Keep your dog up to date on vaccines, including but not limited to Bordetella, Parainfluenza, and Canine Influenza, and avoid direct contact with other dogs.
        • If your dog has been exposed to a dog with an upper respiratory illness, but is showing no symptoms, it is recommended you quarantine that dog for a minimum of 2 weeks. Do not take it to any areas where other dogs will be.
        • If your dog has been exposed to a dog with an upper respiratory illness, and is showing symptoms, it is recommended you quarantine that dog for a minimum of 4 weeks after all symptoms have passed. Do not take it to any areas where other dogs will be.
        • Absolutely do not take your dog to any events if it is showing signs of respiratory illness such as coughing, sneezing, wheezing, any nasal discharge, lack of energy, or difficulty breathing.

        These are recommendations put out by the American Kennel Club. 

        Out of an abundance of caution, the club will provide hand sanitizer and wipes at each training ring.  Do not pet other dogs and then pet your dog without cleaning your hands in between.  Do not let your dog sniff other dogs.  Do not share water bowls or toys or training equipment without cleaning them in between.  Please be your dogs advocate so they all stay safe.
