      Single Accommodation during Peak Periods

      Single Accommodation
      Peak Periods for Homestead are Easter, Christmas & New Years. During these periods Single Accommodation will incur a higher fee.

      For safety reasons, there are certain dog breeds we prefer to keep on their own due to their size and strength, regardless of peak periods.

      The list includes but is not limited to:

      Bulldogs Greyhounds Rottweilers
      Bernese Mountain Dogs Heelers Ridgebacks
      Boxers Huskies Shiba Inus
      Chow Chows Malamutes Shepherds
      Dobermans Mastiffs Staffies
      Great Danes Maremmas Staghounds
      Wolfhounds

      Any dogs that are crossed with one of these breeds will also require single accommodation. Two dogs of any of these breeds from the same family are certainly able to stay together, provided we have the owner’s consent.

      Single accommodation is also available for those dogs and owners who would prefer this option, regardless of their dog’s breed.

      Minimum Stay & Booking Fees
      During Peak Periods, a minimum ten-day charge applies to all bookings over the Christmas / New Year holiday period and a minimum five-day charge applies for the Easter period. These charges are non-refundable if you decide to pick up your pet earlier than originally booked.

      Public and school holiday periods are subject to a non-refundable booking fee (deposit).

      A $10 surcharge per pet, per day applies on all gazette public holidays.

      Medication administration pricing

      If your pet requires veterinary medications, we are more than happy to administer these during their stay. All medication must be in its original, prescribed packaging, clearly marked with your pet’s name, medication, dose and frequency.

      Fees apply to medicate our guests and prices will vary depending on the medications requirements (Inc. time of day administration).

      • Medications (tablets, liquids etc.) are charged at $3.00 per administration
      • Injections are charged at $7.70 per administration

      Diabetic Pets: if your pet is diabetic, please contact us to ensure we have a trained staff member available to administer such medications throughout your pets stay.

      Our Medication Authority Form must be filled in and provided with your pet’s medication. Send to admin@homesteadkennels.com.au or bring filled in form on day of arrival.

      Own Food

      All meals are included in the price of all packages and accommodation. We provide Royal Canin for both dogs & cats.

      If your pet is a fussy eater, has a sensitive stomach or is on a vet prescribed diet, we recommend you pre-package and provide their own food for their stay. Please provide extra food in case their stay is extended.

      Additional fees will apply if meals are not pre-portioned – $2.50 per meal.
