Pets are supervised by qualified staff across our unparalleled farm setting which includes a landscaped dam.

We take great care to ensure your dog is placed in the most appropriate accommodation area taking into account their size, age, temperament and breed. We want all of our guests to feel right at home!

​Our dog pens are spacious with the sleeping area enclosed and the outside area open but protected from the sun and rain. Each has a large, comfy trampoline bed with a heated sleeping pad underneath. In winter there is in-slab heating and in summer our pens are shaded. We also have a number of extra large rooms that can accommodate same family members, large breeds or those who need more space to move around.

We provide two meals per day of a high protein formula providing highly digestible nutrition for your dog, which suits most breeds. If your dog is a fussy eater or has special dietary requirements we are happy to serve their own food. Please ensure meals are pre-packaged & labelled in individual bags and a small charge does apply.

​After a daily health check and breakfast, all of our guests will enjoy group play of up to 1 hour,

​We do not accept belongings except if required for medical or anxiety reasons.
