I usually recommend and ask that owners show proof of up-to-date vaccinations for Bordetella, DPP (commonly grouped as DAPP, DHLPP DAPP2), and Rabies. The proof is a vet documentation that shows the dogs name, vaccination name, date it was given and most importantly the date the vaccination expires.

Bordetella reduces the risk of kennel cough in dogs that is pretty contagious. DPP (Distemper, Parvo, Parvo Influenza) is a part of a dogs core vaccinations. Rabies is also a big vaccination to make sure is up to date not only for other dogs but people as well, local laws usually require a dog has its rabies shots for any dog 4 months and older too.

These vaccinations are fairly typical for boarding/ doggie daycares as well. Other than vaccines I like to know that a dog is on flea preventatives as well, just in case.
