what is The Homestead Difference ?

What makes Homestead Pet Resort “Different” to other Boarding Facilities is simple! 

We are a Boutique Dog & Cat Boarding and Dog Training Facility and believe that every dog & cat is an individual and therefore should be treated as such. Our playtimes are all conducted on a “one on one” basis to ensure that every interaction your dog & cat has is a positive one. 

Some Boarding Kennels idea of playtime is allowing large numbers of dogs to run free with limited supervision, while this sounds “warm & fuzzy” to us humans – how does your dog feel about this and what happens to your dog when things ( and they do ) go wrong ?

As a recognized Best Practice Dog Training Facility, we see every day the negative impacts that a “dog park” mentality of playtime has on our four-legged friends. Whilst it is virtually impossible to guarantee the temperament of multiple dogs and hope that they all get along fairly and safely, it is our ethos to ensure that YOUR dog has a great time with us, without feeling it is under undue pressure or stress from other dogs. 

We cater for all dogs, regardless of their sociability with other dogs as we provide a personalized and unique experience for each dog in our care! 

That’s the Homestead Difference!
