I highly recommend Aprile she was very helpful and understanding. Our boy was well looked after and I have no hesitation in telling everyone just how great her place is. It was just like a holiday for our boy.

We recently boarded our Cocker Spaniel Nelson for a week at Hunter Pet Motel Elderslie and couldn't have been happier with the care given to him. All the staff were very friendly, the premises are very clean and well cared for and they are also the only accredited Kennel in the Hunter area and you can understand why.They may be a little further out but it is worth the extra few minutes to know your pet is well cared for .We had previously had major problems with another kennel and had to take Nelson to the vets 3 times after being there. It is now a week after picking Nelson up and not one problem! As I said we couldn't be happier and nor could Nelson.

We left our 2 dogs at the Arundel Pet Resort and we were very unhappy when we collected our dogs. They had been left there for 3 nights and we had to take them straight out for a bath as they stunk. They are poodles and have never smelt as bad as that. We left their beds there which also stunk. On the information we received they were supposed to be bathed which they weren't. We also booked and paid for a special room for them. From the smell of them I doubt whether they had a special room at all. I would not recommend this kennel.

Staff unprofessional and RUDE! Lack of communication internally and externally. Lied to my face when asked questions. My dog got a kennel cough while there.When I picked up my dog after 3 days of boarding, she was sick! She was throwing up and had diarrhea. I had to take her to the vet. Been ripped off with additional charges. Her blanket got replaced and I was promised that it will be returned to me. After 5 days, they never even bothered to call me to get this sorted. I had to ring them. If you love your dog, please don't take them there. You will highly regret it.

Sharon and her team go way beyond the call of duty to care for your family member! We were leaving for a 4-week overseas trip when our 12-year-old Burmese fell ill with Pancreatitis! She was hospitalised on the day before our departure, we had no idea what to do! Not only were we not sure if she was going to be ok we felt evil for leaving for overseas.I contacted Sharon, she said she would take care of everything! Her caring no-nonsense professionalism alleviated our fears! Sharon collected our cat from the cat hospital, ensured she had her medication and cared for our cat as if she was her own. Sharon answered all my Facebook messages and constantly gave me progress reports and pictures which was so reassuring in the middle of the Pacific Ocean on a cruise ship! Sharon and her team nursed her and attended her every fussy "Princess" need. Sharon and her team are exceptionally focused, caring, professional and feel like a part of the family as soon as you arrive at the beautiful setting 30 minutes out of Brisbane. You will not find a facility like this in Brisbane. The "motel" is spotless, the cat's suites exceptional. You have to see it for yourself and Sharon and her team encourage this! I cannot than Sharon and all the team enough for the care they took with us paranoid cat owners not to mention our treasured. We have had a few cats over the years and have used several other facilities but never again! Thank you again to Sharon and her team for a service that is exceptional beyond exceptional!

Echuca K9 Kondos Boarding Kennels

139 Echuca West School Rd, Echuca, VIC, 3564

pal rating pal rating pal rating pal rating pal rating
This is my first ever review, for any kind of thing, but felt it was necessary, particularly for those of us who LOVE our animals like we do. We booked our beautiful Labrador in at Euchuca K9 Kondos in mid May 2017 and dropped him off on a Monday just before 1pm. When we arrived the first words the owner said to us were 'we gotta make this quick as I have an appointment at 1:15pm'. Ok, we can understand that, so we did our best to accommodate his scedule by doing everything he requested us to do with urgency, such as fill in paperwork and provide vaccinations certificates etc etc. But, his lack of interest in our lab whilst we sat there and his nonexistent customer service with one worded answers to our questions were unnerving. My father who happened to be with us, tried engaging in conversation with the male owner whilst my partner and I completed forms and got very little out of him. After we finished the paperwork, we followed the owner as he walked our lab into the enclosure thinking we'd at least see where our boy would be sleeping but he was very quick to close the gate on us and walk away, leaving us rather upset as we didn't get to cuddle or say goodbye. Instead of feeling comfortable about leaving our lab at a kennel, we felt quite the opposite, instead we tossed and turned all night until we decided to do what felt right with us and pick him up. We called the kennel just after opening hours, and told them our plans had changed and we needed to pick up our boy, not surprisingly we were greeted unfriendly on the phone. When we arrived, he seemed incredibly annoyed at us and decided to charge us for two days, even though it hadn't even been 24hours and they charge on a daily basis. Unfortunately, the vibe we got off this kennel was more centered around money rather than the love of animals.

This was George's second stay with Aprile and I'm sure that he protested the whole car ride home because he didn't want to leave! We could happily enjoy our holiday knowing the George was well looked after and very content. We will be back!

Bluegum Boarding Lodge

74 Gimberts Rd, Morisset, NSW, 2264

We left our 7 month old staffy pup here for 2 weeks and we could not be happier. Obviously we were concerned about leaving her for so long the first time and wanted to find 'the right' kennel. Upon arriving for an inspection prior to booking, we were impressed. Sue showed us through and answered all our questions. We did not make an appointment to inspect, we just turned up mid morning. The place was spotless and the dogs staying there appeared to be quite content. Each kennel has it's own outdoor run and can also be closed off for the nights and bad weather. There are trampoline beds with lots of snuggle rugs and things to chew and play with on hand. There are also large grassed runs for daytime play, exercise and socialization. When we picked our girl up it was obvious to us that she had been very well cared for. She was plump and happy, she jumped all over us of course but she also jumped all over Sue as if she did not want to leave. We will be making this our kennel of choice from now on and recommending Bluegum to our friends.
