A vet is on call 24 hours a day.
Peregian Beach, QLD
Rates: $25.00 per day for one dog/$45.00 per day for two/$55.00 per day for three
Operated by a former dog handler and trainer, the Peregian has a grassy run for each group of five kennels, so social dogs can pal around with others of their size and temperament. There are over five acres of land for the dogs to be walked on each day, and dogs staying awhile get strolls on the beach. All dogs get a tick and flea rinse before heading into the kennels and receive shampoos before leaving. Doggy guests feast on chicken mince, wings and necks and Royal Canin Dry Food and can relax to continuous piped music. There’s also a geriatric wing for dogs over 10 years old or those with disabilities.
Rates: Small and medium-sized breeds $18/large Breeds $20
Located in Perth, these kennels feature individual sleeping quarters with run attached, plenty of affection and petting from staff, hammock-style beds, exercise yards and premium food. There are also additional offerings at the company’s other facilities that cost more than the day rate, such as clipping and general grooming and hydrobaths.
