How can dogs catch Kennel Cough?

Kennel Cough will spread rapidly in the air or by direct contact with a group of dogs in the right conditions. Such as:

  • Close contact with other dogs; for instance, in kennels or backs of trucks
  • Exercise, excitement and exposure to cold air stimulates the cough and spreads the viruses and bacteria
  • High levels of humidity such as foggy mornings, warm and poorly ventilated kennels
  • Stressful situations such as boarding kennels or lots of barking
  • Mixing with dogs of uncertain or no vaccination history
