Our Rates

Off Peak*:

Small dogs - 10 kgs and under:  $25/night
Medium dogs - 11-35kg:  $27.50/night
Large fellas - 35kg +:  $30/night

Cats:  $17.50/night 

On Peak:

For dogs - please add $5/night/dog.  (Peak times are all school hols, and all Dec - Jan)

Dam sessions: $7.50 (or 3 sessions for $20) in a group session.  Group sessions usually have a ratio of 1 human per 5 dogs at most.  $10/session if the dog prefers their own company.    Whilst there is plenty of running space provided internally for your dogs, if you wish to have a dam session, let us know.  To qualify, all dogs must come consistently when called.  As you can imagine,I can't be spending 3 hours chasing a dog around a paddock to catch it!  (so far, everyone has been really sensible about this.  Thank you!)

For smaller/medium dogs, and those dogs who find coming back when called a bit more challenging, we now offer a social group setting, fully supervised in our medium dog village quadrangle, to play with suitably matched playmates for up to half an hour, in addition to the normal exercise provided.  These extra sessions are $5/each per dog, and we can also post pictures to our facebook page.  Please note:  small dogs play with small dogs only.  Medium dogs are only matched with medium dogs - and all owners must give their permission beforehand.

*  This is the price for desexed dogs over 6 months of age.  Non desexed dogs over 6 months of age are $5 extra per night.  Generally speaking we cannot take "in season" girls.  Undesexed dogs must be registered with Dogs Victoria as show dogs.   We have very limited availability to take undesexed males/females.

* Medication charge:  usually $5-$10 per day, may be more if needs are complex.  Meds are best brought in a little pill container that you can get from the chemist where you can see the days of the week and am & pm little boxes.  This makes it easiest to ensure the right meds are given.

* If you provide your dog's own food, an extra fee is charged.  Little baggies must be provided for each meal.  If the meals provided include complex preparation, this fee may be increased to up to $15-$20 per meal.
