Frequently asked questions
Does my pet need to be vaccinated prior to boarding?
Yes, all animals must be fully vaccinated to be able to holiday with us. If you are unsure of your pets vaccination status please speak to your veterinarian or our friendly staff. Go to our vaccination requirements page for more info.
What do the pets sleep on?
All pets are given freshly washed Vetbed Gold – an anti fungal/antibacterial man made material similar to sheepskin. This will be placed on top of the trampoline beds. Owners are welcome to bring their own bedding if they wish. Just keep in mind that sometimes dogs may get destructive away from their owners, so if you think this may be the case for your dog it's best not to bring your best stuff in. We don't take responsibility for chewed beds.
Do I need to bring my pet's own food?
All pets are fed super premium food – Royal Canin for majority of the animals, which is considered the best complete diet biscuit on the market, or Blackhawk for the customers that are already using it. For the dogs we also do have Tuckertime Chicken and Veg meat roll at customers’ request. You only need to provide your pet’s food if your pet is on a veterinarian prescribed diet or has other unusual, specific requirements. Nightly treats are fed but you are welcome to bring your own.
I have 2 or more pets, can they stay together?
Yes, all our accommodation facilities are large enough to house two (or more) pets; if your dogs need separating during feeding please advise reception during check in. Larger cat families can stay together and may prefer the extra space available in our family suites. Unfortunately we can not board your cat and dog together.
Are the cats disturbed by the dogs barking?
The cats are in a completely separate building to the dogs, also, the dogs' building has soundproof insulation.
What if there is an emergency medical problem?
We have an on-call veterinarian for the facility and there are several excellent veterinarians in close proximity, along with emergency facilities that are open all night and on holidays. We treat every guest as we do our own pets, and you may rest assured that they will receive the best attention possible. We will get in touch with you or one of your emergency contacts before making any desicions unless otherwise arranged.
What should I bring when checking in my pet?
All pets must be up to date on their vaccinations so please bring proof of this if we do not already have them on our records, payment of holiday fees are required when you check your pet(s) in. Bring any medications in their original containers with veterinarian instructions on them and emergency contact details for while you are away.
When and how do I pay?
Accounts are settled at check in; Payments that are accepted are: Cash or bank transfer.
Will my dog get to socialise with other dogs?
We do promote socialization with the pet owners consent, dogs are put with other dogs only of similar size and energy. Play time is always supervised by a staff member.
Why do you go on a daily rate and not a nightly rate like hotels?
For the best interest of your pets we like them to be dropped off as early as possible to allow them the whole first day to meet the staff, settle into the environment and adjust to our routines.
We are different to hotels as they have everyone checked out in the morning and checked in that afternoon.
