Each program is tailored to the individual and runs for a minimum of two weeks; some breeds or dogs with certain behaviours may take longer. 

    Assessments for Board & Train: $60.00 (if required)

    Board & Train Programs: $135.00 per pet, per day inc. all boarding charges

    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

    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. (once approved by homestead)

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

    The solo boarding charge for a small dog is $87.00 Per day for a medium dog $91.00 Per day & large dog is $95.00 Per day
