A working dog also has a number of opportunities to be exposed to kennel cough if he competes in dog sports or shows.
Owning a working dog that has kennel cough can be a little more difficult than owning a more sedentary dog that has this illness.
Although there is no practical way to keep a working dog from catching this common illness, there are some preventative steps you can take.
There are also ways to keep your busy working dog quietly entertained that will encourage him to lie down.
Make sure your working dog is vaccinated against Bordetella.
