Bordetella Bronchiseptica, also known as kennel cough is basically the common cold to dogs. Despite its name it can be contracted wherever your dog comes into contact with other dogs. So as well as in kennels it can be caught at the vets, in the park etc.
The vaccine for kennel cough is administered by your vet in the form of a nasal spray and will last for 12 months. It is just like the flu jab for humans. While the vaccine will not prevent all types of coughs/flu it protect your dog from the main strains.
