Best Friend Pet Centre offers boarding kennel facilities of high standard for your dog, however, for their own protection, all dogs must have a current C5 vaccination to enter the facilities.

The Best Friend Pet Centre offers both standard and private residence housing. Standard housing is offered within the main complex and consists of standard and large kennels. The private residence accommodation is offered in purpose built “cubby” style chalets. Each private residence is insulated to a housing standard and offers internal heating. Each private residence also has a porch and external run area.

After checking in, dogs are shown to their kennel where they are given the necessary time needed to settle in and become accustomed to the centre environment.

Standard kennel runs consist of an enclosed sleeping area with an outdoor run area. The sleeping area contains a trampoline style bed for their comfort. You are welcome bring extra bedding and toys to enhance your dogs stay. The run is covered to protect the dog from the sun and rain. Under floor heating is available in some kennels. Fresh drinking water is provided to all kennels. Music is played in the kennels the dogs favourite radio station being Triple J and Mix 106.3.

Private Residences boast the comforts of home or a place for that special vacation. These facilities are fully enclosed and provide both an indoor and outdoor retreat for your canine companion, and of course a special under cover deck area for lazing away the afternoon. From taking a snooze on the comfortable bed (just like home) or to just lazing around on the deck taking in the surroundings and listening to some relaxing music, it truly is a special treat for our canine friends.

Each morning all kennels are cleaned. Dogs are led to play areas while cleaning is conducted.Where possible we prefer group play as this allows the dogs to socialise with other dogs and have a great time. Dogs are matched for size and temperament. If your dog cannot socialise with other dogs, this is all right, individual play is accommodated for.

After run cleaning its breakfast time. We feed a premium quality biscuits with cooked chicken meat. Special dietary needs and medication can be accommodated for at a small nominal fee.

Further activities are available and include walks or play sessions, bath and brush, and gourmet delicacies. Please check our Fees and Activities page for pricing.
