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!
