Calabash Canine Lodge

Calabash Canine Lodge

Calabash Luxury Canine Lodge

The Lodge is our exclusive boarding for small to medium dogs; all the guests have given it their wag of approval!

The underfloor heating in the rooms & indoor playareas make those cold winters days & nights very enjoyable.   During the summer months the airconditioning will be working to keep all the guests cool & relaxed. The relaxed & homely atmosphere suits even the most anxious guests & allows them to settle nicely & have fun during their holiday.  Their day is spent mainly outside in the large interactive playareas or in one of the smaller indoor lounges.

The outdoor playareas have been designed to entertain & stimulate our guests with sand pits, plunge pools, sunshine & shade. The indoor playareas have fun apparatus to play hide & seek in, plush beds & comfy seats to recline on.

The Luxury Lodge consist of 5 different standards of accommodation with 20 suites available.

Lassie Suites — just like home – these are our most luxurious of them all. These suites have their own outside playareas, a bed, TV & of course window to enjoy the scenery.

Scooby Doo Suites — enjoy the luxury of a spacious suite with a window for natural light, bed, tv & armchair.

Pluto Suites — all suites have their own window to allow the sunshine to gently awaken those snoozing. They have a lovely plush bed to snooze in & of course great views over the playarea.

Snoopy Suites — plush bed, good views, all with their own window – what more could you bark for.

Toto Suites — these suites are our smallest but there are only 4 rooms to an individual indoor out door playarea. Perfect for those doggies that prefer lounging around & do not have a high priority for exercise.

Complimentary; treats daily, tummy rubs, basic grooming, scented bath.

Additional activities include; scentwork, walks, professional clipping & grooming.

Calabash Canine Lodge have room service (of course) & our meals are of the highest standard. We offer a range of fresh foods or steamed meatloaf & only the best of biscuits to snack on.

We feel that we have the best small kennel & cattery in Sydney!

Thanks Linda for being so kind

It makes a huge difference , knowing that you are looking after Max … In fact if you weren’t available. I wouldn’t be on holidays … if I can return that kindness please let me know … I have given up on the dacchies, they are actually quite good at home and have an acre to run around in and that seems to keep them busy.. On the plus side, they do get under your skin a bit and I miss them when they are not around
… Thank God , they are no bigger !!

Thanks Linda

I’m sooo pleased to have found you too, and it was Prue and her mum who recommended you, as I was on a mission and found their cattery first.

I can’t tell you how great its been to know I can have absolute faith in Calabash who have provided a gem of a service in every way possible. Tip top care, and lots of love and fuss, professionally and securely managed with great attention to detail. It’s enabled Allan and I to visit so many places throughout all states in Australia, New Zealand, Cook Islands, Lord Howe Island, Tasmania….! You were there for me in an emergency last January when I was back in the UK within 48hrs and the boys stayed in the posh pony stable for a while, and this last ‘bitter sweet’ holiday for the boys whereby you are so kindly preparing them for their long haul journey and waving them off on my behalf…

It was sad to see the boys trot off up your drive for the last time and I’m going to miss seeing you all. Please keep in touch and I’ll be sure to send you some pics of the boys playing in their much smaller UK garden… I wonder if Jolly Jazz and Dashing Darcy will remember it?! Magic Minstrel will miss running round the swimming pool barking at liazards and Tinker Tomah will miss swimming like an otter… It’s going to be tough for us all I fear… But Allan and I will be there waiting for their delivery to our home, and hopefully the joy of seeing us again will help them overcome their long journey and smaller garden without a pool!

One fun thing, did Bob tell you we also live in Guildford area (small hamlet called Christmas Pie) and my son lives 25mins away in the village of Godalming – where I also worked for many years… Small world!

Must go – now in Beecroft for a last lasagne and dropping in on the posh pussies for a quick cuddle a bit later…..

Let me know when the boys have been collected and I’ll be tracking them right through and across the world ……

Thanks again Linda and all of your team…..

Hi Linda,

I just wanted to thank you and the crew for doing such a fantastic job looking after Keyson and Ginger. I know they have a fabulous time during their stay.

I also wanted to pass on a thank you to Prue for doing such a brilliant job washing and grooming the kids. They look amazing!
We wouldn’t trust anyone else but Calabash Kennels with our babies.
Thanks again,
Karen Mannell
