The Highest Quality Pet Boarding in Melbourne

At Homestead Boarding & Training Kennels & Cattery, we feel our guest pets are our extended family and we love each and every one of them. It’s wonderful to see so many of our furry friends come back to our pet hotel regularly when their owners go on holidays, have weekend business trips or simply need someone to care for their precious pet for the day.

We provide pet boarding for a variety of different periods – day care, weekends, week stays, month stays and longer periods. We can help with all your pet boarding needs.
