Office hours for dropping off and collecting pets
Monday to Friday 8am to 10am and 4pm to 6pm.
Saturday 8am to 10am. Closed on Saturday afternoons
Sunday 4pm to 6pm.
By limiting the drop off and collection times allows the pets to settle in quickly to our routines and reduces their stress by restricting the number of distractions of new animals coming in.
Out of hour bookings are possible with prior notice and within reason, we can arrange appointments to suit. However, unarranged pick-ups or drop offs of pets will incur $25.00 per pet fee.
Booking Pets In
Is it necessary to book my pet in?
Yes, so we can have the cage/kennel ready on arrival. For Easter and Christmas holidays, it pays to book in at least two months prior.

We provide a premium, complete and balanced diet for dogs and cats. Owners wishing to supply special diets are welcome to do so.
As our saying goes - all pets will get cuddles and care! They will always be given individual attention and depending on their social skills, will have other dogs to play with in small groups upon request. We never leave dogs unattended whilst out exercising with others
We are happy to supply your pets with blankets but you are welcome to bring their own and anything that makes them feel more 'at home' (No bean bags please). During each exercise period your pets living quarters are hygienically cleaned and any soiled bedding removed for washing.
