What People Say

Mika a Choc lab/spanial cross has attended Creature Comforts Doggy Daycare 5 days a week for more than 3 years. I call it kindy and when I say in the morning: "ready for kindy" she runs around the lounge in excitment. When we arrive at Creature Comforts she starts making squeaking noises with excitment. Cant get out of the car quick enough. Mika loves kindy. So do I . Great peace of mind knowing Mika is so happy there with her friends, and that Nicola, Gavin and Staff look after her well. I cant reccomend Creatures Comforts enough. A well looked after, very happy, very tired content dog. She also stays at times overnight, again one happy content dog.

Welcome to the Creature Comforts Pet Lodge Boarding Kennels

Zach feeding dogs
We care about all our guests, like we would want others to care about our pet.

Here we care for your precious dog, who will be given lots of love, attention and have a home away from home.

Socialisation and fun are key to our guests’ enjoyment with ‘outside time’ for 2 – 3 hours am and 2 – 3 hours pm (weather permitting of course). We offer large grassed exercise areas for the more energetic guests and smaller, quieter spots for the elderly or shy. The facilities are comfortable, spacious, clean, hygienic and safe. We welcome inspection prior to booking, during our Business Hours.

Our Toy House is very popular with our smallest canine guests. It has a lovely courtyard for them to play in with access to day kennels and trampoline beds if they just want to chill out and watch their friends playing. The cottage is fully insulated so provides a warm cosy environment for them when they go to bed at night.

Meals are served morning and evening allowing all guests a siesta or ‘quiet time’ between 11am and 4pm (our closed time). This ensures adequate rest and digestion.

Guests staying longer than 10 days are treated to a complimentary bath on departure. We also regularly weigh our long term guests to make sure they are maintaining their check in weight. With lots of exercise time they can burn up lots of energy! Please read our Services for our daily boarding rates and other grooming options.

We feed a premium, highly palatable diet suitable for all breeds. If your canine friend is on a special diet (e.g. Puppy Food) we recommend you bring it along for the duration of their stay with us.

We require all vaccinations to be up to date for any stay at the Kennels. Compulsory vaccinations are Canine Cough and the 5 in 1 vaccine, which includes Parvo Virus, hepatitis and distemper. A lot of owners also get protection for Lepto as well, although Lepto is not a compulsory vaccine for our Kennels. Please check all vaccinations are up to date prior to bringing your dog to stay as we will not accept any dogs without current vaccinations.

We are confident that your dog will have a great time when they stay at Creature Comforts Pet Lodge. Dogs that stay with us get lots of playtime and socialisation, lots of hugs and pats, good quality food, clean and comfy kennels and an experience that leaves them happy. In fact, we often warn the owners that they may find their dog sleeps a lot more than usual after their stay due to the extra stimulation and exercise they receive during their time with us.

Please remember: NO VACCINATION = NO BOARDING. We have no exceptions to this rule. This helps protect your dog and other dogs from the risk of spreading or catching harmful diseases. Please ensure that your dog’s flea and worm treatments are up to date and will cover them during the whole length of their stay.

You are welcome to come view your pet’s prospective holiday home but please come during our business hours. Our business is 24 hours a day and we need uninterrupted time to care for our guests, therefore we do ask you respect our hours. Drop offs and Pick ups out of our business hours incur a $30 Out of Hours Fee.
