The Highest Quality Dog Boarding In Melbourne
At Homestead Boarding & Training Kennels and Cattery we think of our guest pets as our extended family; we absolutely adore each and every one of them!
It’s wonderful for us to see so many of our furry friends regularly return to our pet resort when their owners go on holidays, enjoy weekend away, leave on business trips or simply need some extra care for their precious pet for the day.
Our indoor boarding kennels are light, airy, temperature controlled and completely protected from the elements all year round for your dog’s comfort. All our pet care professionals are qualified to handle dogs of all sizes, breeds, ages and temperaments.
We provide pet boarding for a variety of different periods; day care, weekends, during the week, month-long stays and longer periods.
Homestead are here to help with all your dog boarding kennel needs!
Before your board your dog…
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.
Our Dietary Authority Form must be filled in and provided with your pet’s food. Send to email@example.com or bring filled in form on day of arrival.
For the comfort and safety of all our guest pets, please ensure your pets vaccinations are current (within last 12 months) and have been administered AT LEAST 14 DAYS PRIOR TO ENTRY INTO OUR RESORT.
Cats require a F3 or F4 vaccination. Kittens require all 3 kitten vaccinations
Dogs require C5 vaccination. Puppies require all 3 puppy vaccinations to result in full C5 coverage.
Please email your pets current vaccination certificate to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can ensure your pet has adequate immunity to enter our facility.
If your pet requires veterinary medications, we are more than happy to administer these during their stay. All medication must be in its original vet 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). See prices.
