Homestead Boarding, Training Kennels & Cattery is a family owned, multi-award winning dog boarding kennel, cattery and dog training facility. We are located just 25 minutes north-east of Melbourne CBD in the beautiful countryside of Wonga Park.
Homestead was established by Margaret and Rod Maruff in 1977 to provide a better class of care for Melbourne’s pets. Over the last 40 years, they have established a solid reputation for providing superior quality cattery and dog boarding facilities. A reputation enhanced by the genuine loving care and wonderful treatment your pets receive during their stay at Homestead’s cat and dog boarding kennels.
In 2017, Margaret and Rod decided it was time for some well-earned rest and recreation, retiring and leaving their legacy in the very capable hands of Scott Wendt and Tanya Kennedy. Scott and Tanya are excited about continuing the excellent standards of care at Homestead and the future looks just as bright as the past has been.
Scott and Tanya have more than 40 years of experience between them, ranging from dog training and veterinary nursing to animal behaviour studies. Their experience and expertise are augmented and supported by the amazing, committed staff at Homestead, all of whom are dedicated to making your pets feel like part of the extended family during their stay. That’s the Homestead difference.
We love being part of the Melbourne community, and the feeling is mutual. Many of our wonderful clients have been with us for almost forty years, and continue to refer their friends and family to us. It’s an honour to look after generations of pets for the same people and really get to know them. You can read our testimonials to get a feel for the sense of gratitude people feel knowing their pets are truly cared for at Homestead.
