Doggy Day Care

Doggy Day Care

Bring your pet along to Doggie Day Care at Calabash Kennels

We are excited to announce that we are now offering “Doggie Day Care”

A wonderful opportunity for your dog to have a day of playful interaction with dogs of similar personalities in a safe & secure environment with experienced staff supervision. Your dog will be entertained, socialised & exercised for the whole day. The benefits of doggie day care are endless. No more negative behaviour or destruction caused by boredom. Day care is a wonderful way to introduce your dog to boarding if they have never boarded before or if they are worried & anxious. As dogs don’t google the only way they can understand what boarding is all about is by experiencing days here with us. By taking it slowly dogs are not overwhelmed by their new environment & learn in a positive way what boarding is all about. Our wonderful purpose built water center will be the envy of all dogs during the warmer months – shallow end for those guests who like to paddle & play under the water fountains & of course the deep end where guests can show off there superior swimming skills.

Bring them here where they can dig in our sandpits, play in the doggie pool, have a friendly game of tag, roll around on the grass, or simply have a snooze under a shady tree.

Healthy snacks are available throughout the day.

Optional extras are;

Dam swims
Pool splash
Spa bath

Opening hours;

7.30 am – 5pm Monday to Friday
7.30am – 4pm Saturday


$45.00 per day

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.
