Premium Dog Boarding in Melbourne

Have you ever wondered where you can find dog kennels nearby that will put your pet’s well-being first? Well, you’ve found us! At Homestead Boarding & Training Kennels & Cattery, we offer dog accommodation, including puppy day care, for dogs of all shapes, sizes, breeds and temperaments.


Our major focus in all we do is ensuring the welfare of your dog. This is reflected in the design of our dog boarding kennels, the caring approach of our staff, and the facilities we offer for your dog to get their exercise, rest and relaxation.

Dog Care All Year ‘Round

Are you going on holidays and need dog accommodation for a week, a fortnight or even a month? Or do you just need somewhere safe and comfortable for your pet while you take your kids away for the weekend? Or maybe, you’re heading to see friends who are allergic to dogs and you just need a puppy day care facility? Whatever the case, Homestead offers the flexible stays and reasonable prices you need.

Large Indoor Pens, Trampoline Beds and Relaxing Music

An important part of dog care is ensuring enough space and stimulation to keep canines happy. At Homestead, we provide that with spacious dog accommodation. Each indoor pen is big enough to house two dogs, according to the Victorian State Government Code of Practice. Our dog boarding kennels are indoors, secure and insulated, with an efficient air exchange system to keep the air fresh and pleasant for your dog.


To truly make your dog’s visit a joy, we also include Kuranda trampoline beds, plenty of play space to comfortably move around and relax, and we pipe in relaxing music if the dogs just want to sit and puppy-meditate.

Secure Outdoor Play Yards

It’s very important for dogs to have time outside to play and socialise, burning off energy and avoiding boredom and depression. At Homestead, dogs can enjoy time in our large outdoor play yards. With space to run around and plenty of toys to play with, our dogs can romp around to their heart’s content, relax in the sun, or simply enjoy the company of other dogs. All outdoor areas are fully fenced in with extra security gates to ensure safety.

Insulated Dog Boarding Kennels

Pet care involves making sure dogs don’t overheat or get too cold. That’s why all our kennels are insulated and climatically controlled to keep your pet warm during winter and cool during summer.

Healthy and Delicious Meals for Your Dog

At Homestead, your dog will eat like a king. For breakfast, they will be provided with Royal Canin premium dry food. Then, after playtime, they’re treated to a snack of biscuits and liver treats, and, of course, there is always plenty of fresh water available.

Training Options

If your dog is staying with us for a longer period, consider bundling some dog training with their accommodation. We have decades of experience breeding and training award-winning dogs and can help train your hound in obedience, conformation, agility, tracking, herding and hunting. We also offer puppy classes on weeknights and obedience classes held on Sundays. – Contact us for more information and enrolments !


When their stay is over, you can treat your dog to a warm hydrobath before they go home for a modest charge, you can also have a nail trim for a small fee, and extra grooming services are available on request.

Vet Care Is Close By

Should any issues arise, we have access to several veterinarians in the area who offer prompt service in the case of an emergency.


Make sure your dog has had their annual C5 vaccination before coming to stay. This covers distemper, hepatitis, Parvovirus and canine cough. Your vet will be able to give more information on the vaccinations. We require all vaccinations to be carried out at least 14 days prior to entry into the Kennels.
