Small & Medium Doggy Holidays

Loving home away from home and canine buddies

Individual attention + Home Environment + Canine Buddies = HAPPY DOGS!

Give your best friend a fun loving holiday, in a home environment, whilst you enjoy yours. It's peace of mind with constant on-site supervision with a qualified pet professional, in a relaxed secure setting with canine friends. Your dog will become part of the family enjoying daily outings and lots of bedtime cuddles!


How do we know dogs are happy with Pet Buddy?

They pull their owners to the door every time they come to visit and owners frequently report that they have a tired contented dog when they get home (that's if they don't fall asleep first on the drive home!).


How does it work?

Your dog will have the run of the yard and back room of the house (for indoor trained dogs only), where they can join in our doggy day care activities or take a midday nap. They'll be leaping with excitement for their daily park outing and fun play sessions. There are no kennels, your dog gets treated like one of ours and can sleep indoors or in an outdoor shelter (for outdoor only dogs).

Why dog care in a home environment?


Giving your dog a holiday in a home environment will be just like a home away from home! Your dog will stress less at being parted from their family as they get temporarily adopted by ours. We are with your dog all day running our doggy day care service, so your dog need never fret being alone.

How to enrol your dog...


Vaccination: Required for dogs attending Pet Buddy services and 'meet and greet' visits.

A current* C5 vaccine; which is DHP - (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvo virus) + KC or BB - (Bordetella bronchiseptica or Parainfuenza or Kennel Cough).
DHP requires either an annual or triennial booster, KC or BB an annual booster. Please check with your vet if you're unsure if your dog has a current C5.
*Please note a current vaccination is one that has either had 14 days or more elapsed since it was received, or a booster that was received no more than 14 days after the due date. Dogs under 12 months of age require two sets of vaccinations usually completed by 10 - 12 weeks before they are current.


Age: Dogs must be over 4 months old.


Sex: As dogs are kept in a mixed social situation, we are only able to enroll dogs that are  de-sexed if over the age of 6 months. Unde-sexed puppies under 6 months old are accepted.

Size: We provide a holiday service for dogs under 15kg only.  We provide a day care service for dogs under 35kg only.


Health: Animals must not be showing any signs of contagious aliments, or have suffered any signs of any in the previous two weeks, and be on a regular parasite (worm, heart-worm & flea) control program for admission.


STEP 1 : Check your dog meets our enrolment requirements

STEP 2 : Attend a meet a greet with your dog



Bring your pooch for a tour and a mini play date with some of our guests!


Meet and greets are part of our dog enrollment process and are required prior to booking. All dogs reside in the company of other dogs and people. To ensure a happy and safe environment for all our guests dogs must meet some basic behaviour targets. Your dog doesn't have to be an obedience star, or even know how to sit on command! They just need to be relaxed (probably initially a bit excited about meeting new play mates!) and show good basic social skills to pass our assessment. In fact, the majority of dogs we meet pass with flying colours!


A current vaccination certificate is required to be shown on arrival.


Meet and greets run for approximately 30 mins. Please note that children under 12 years old will not be permitted to attend the meet and greet.


You can book between:


Mon - Fri 9.00 - 10.30am or 3.00 - 4.30pm


Some Saturdays are available 9.00, 9.30am or 4.00, 4.30pm
