We prefer you to bring as little with you as possible as it is difficult to keep track of blankets, toys and other special belongings. We have a very large supply of these and it is much easier to use our own.

Does your pet have behavioural problems or Health conditions that we need to know about? Please let us know if your dog is prone to jumping fences, digging, is a ‘houdini’ escape artist, or is very timid, etc. It is always better to let us know of anything unusual so that we can ensure your pet is safe.

Vicious Dogs

If your dog attacks a human or other animal, it will be isolated immediately and either you or your emergency contact person will be asked to collect them. You will be responsible for all medical and vet charges that result from such an incident.

We will try our best to use your own vet but alternatively either The Vet Centre or Town and Country vet will be used.


While every effort will be made to ensure your pet has a safe stay with us, they are boarded at your own risk. We accept no responsibility for illness, injury, pregnancy, death or loss for any reason whatsoever.
