Best Kennels in Sydney

Simply the Best

We like to consider ourselves as the best kennels that you can find around Sydney!

Place your dogs in a beautiful rural setting where your loved one can play in our extensive interactive outdoor facilities, enjoy a splash in the water centre or play in the large indoor play areas when it is raining. We have lots of areas to explore & run on. This is a very special dog facility with a relaxed, friendly and informal atmosphere where the care and welfare of our Dog Guests is of prime importance.

We are set in on quiet and tranquil acreage in Arcadia in the Hills District. Our boarding kennels are less than an hour from the centre of Sydney. Our charm is that we are located away from the city hussle & bussle and have peace & calmness for your dog to relax & enjoy his/her holiday.

Dogs are wonderful animals that are capable of a range of feelings. As the oldest domesticated species, the minds of dogs have been shaped by many years of contact with humans. They have as a result of this physical and social evolution, acquired the ability to understand and communicate with humans, and they are uniquely attuned to human behaviour.

Dogs are truly amazing creatures, with so many intricate personalities and individual characteristics – we try and cater for every one of our doggy guests. We make sure the emotional feelings your dogs experience from our staff are as loving as the emotional bonds they have with you. To your dog, we become their loving family. It is as simple as that..

Our vision has always been to ensure we have the best kennel facilities in New South Wales, so we are always investing in upgrading our facilities to make your pets enjoy a wonderful stay. Let’s not forget though that dogs don’t google so if your dog hasn’t boarded before then the only way they can know what boarding is all about is by experience. Day care is a wonderful way to allow your dog to find out that boarding is lots of fun.

Our Dog Kennels

We have two different facilities now for dogs. Both our facilities are the ultimate in dog boarding & we feel are the benchmark for all other boarding facilities. The Lodge for small to medium guests is private & exclusive. The guests here have playtime throughout the day & are only in their suites for downtime before & after meals & for a short afternoon nap. The Retreat is for any size dogs (although some restrictions do apply). All of our rooms are private with large sleeping quarters allowing the dogs both warmth and space &, each room comes with its own private courtyard with large clean trampoline bed and a very high standard of cleanliness. Find out more about our grooming and doggie diets here.

Come & visit us so we can give you tour & quote for our wonderful facilities.  You will see why we have one of the best luxury boarding kennels in Sydney. We conduct inspections between 11am – 2pm Monday – Friday & group inspections at either 11am or 2pm on Saturdays by appointment (except on public holiday weekends or during closure dates).
