Hi Linda

Sorry this is so late but I really wanted to say a big thank you to you and your wonderful staff for looking after Charlie for the 4 weeks we were on vacation recently. I have no hesitation recommending you to my friends and will always be happy for you to have Charlie. So glad to check in on Facebook each week to see the lovely photos of him happily playing and looking relaxed. He came back home very happy and well adjusted and I know he was well fed and cared for. Hopefully we will see you again soon in your beautiful surroundings.

Best regard

When I dropped Bailey off for his holiday camp he did not give me a backward glance.  He knew where he was and sniffed his way up to the door.  Not a peep out of him.  He loves Calabash Kennels with all the other happy doggies and caring staff.  A home away from home but with lots of interesting friends and things to do and lots of new smells.  I know Bailey is happy because he always weighs the same as when he arrives and when I pick him up.  He is clean and no fleas.  But best of all he is a happy doggie.  The kennels are located in Sydney's north in a semi rural area.  The grounds are very well kept and the air is fresh.  I often think Bailey has a better time at Calabash Kennels than I do on my holiday.  I often recommend Calabash Kennels to my friends because it is so good.

Dear Linda

Thank you so much for looking after Cleo while we were away.  She seemed very happy when we picked her up.  In fact we weren’t sure she wanted to come home with us as she turned back to the Lodge and cried a little as we took her away!  It’s wonderful to know she made some good friends and had a fun holiday.  We loved seeing the photos on Facebook, it gave us great peace of mind, especially given it was her first time away from home. We will definitely be back again!

Best wishes,
Melissa & Cleo

Dear Team

At last I‘m getting time to write and thank you all very much for the incredible service & care we and our pets, Isla and Florence received during the month of April!  From the rather complicated beginning ( re imms for Isla) to the somewhat last minute end where we think we may have mixed up the pick up date, you were all fab!  Isla & Florence arrived back to us in tip top condition, happy, healthy and smelling great!  We love taking holidays with our pets whenever possible but for piece of mind, its just good to know you guys are there.
From our hearts, a massive thank you! Great job!

Warm regards

We were both impressed

We were both impressed with the standards of accommodation provided for the dogs and the obvious desire shown to meet needs and desires of both pets & owners. Confident that Josie was safe and happy as possible, we were able to enjoy our short break. We will certainly return in the future.

Yours sincerely, Margaret & Alan.

Hi Linda/ Team

I hope you are all well and having a good week! I just wanted to express gratitude to all the people who were involved in looking after Leo my cat during his long stay at Calabash last month. Thank you for your reassurance you all gave me prior to leaving him there by allowing my to visit the facilities and walk through to have a look at how the other feline residents were doing. I appreciated that whilst overseas that there was Facebook updates of Leo and I was able to see pictures of him healthy and happy 😊.  Thank goodness for technology for the allowing the interactive updates on enabling me to see Leo from a distance. Everyone was very helpful, especially Linda on the care of my boy and can’t thank you all enough for the positive experience I had leaving Leo in your care. It was his first time away from home and in a foreign place, with the care and attention you all gave him made the transition for him as smooth as possibly could have been for him.

Thank you kindly for everything and provide a loving and caring environment for everyone’s beloved pets.
Kind Regards,
Leanne

P.S The other kennels I called prior to you were in no comparison to the level of service you provided me.

Hello Linda

We could not be happier with Chewie’s stay at Calabash. He has come home as the same happy dog as when we dropped him off. If anything he seems to have grown up a bit and matured. We are especially delighted that you managed to get his grooming done. As you could see this has been a big issue for us for a long time. I cannot convey how much we appreciate that you found someone who could groom him successfully and we will definitely be following up for further sessions. Next time we go away Chewie will be coming to you for sure. Thank you for everything, we are so very grateful.

Hi Linda

Thank you for looking after our Archie recently during the Christmas holiday season. Archie has come back happy and might be missing all the good company he had at Calabash! We saw the pictures of him enjoying running around and splashing in the pool. While the temperature in Sydney kept going up during Christmas and we kept checking the weather on the internet regularly, we were relieved Archie was in comfort at Calabash. This is the fourth time we had left our pet in your care and every single time we have appreciated the professionalism of your team in looking after the pets there. Please pass on our thanks and regards to everyone in your team.

Best regards,
Nitin & Nima Marchareddi.
