If you are going on holidays, chances are you have planned for everything, except for one thing – the dog. Thankfully, there are places which are willing to keep your pet safe and sound while you enjoy your vacation; and there are plenty of dog kennels to choose from in Brisbane.
The trick is finding the right one for your dog, one that cares for and loves your dog as much as you do. Below are some that might work for you.
Castelan Kennels has been around for almost 40 years, and the owners have had a lot of experience in caring for dogs, including breeding, obedience and are themselves pet owners. In addition, all staff enjoy working with animals and are ready to cooperate should your pet have any extra special needs while staying at Castelan Kennels. With a veterinary hospital closeby, and the kennel close to the City and the Airport, you can pretty much drop off your dog on your way to your holiday. The owners are long-standing members of the Association of Pet Boarding & Grooming (Qld) Inc., and operate in accordance with their Code Of Ethics, so you can be sure your dog will be well looked after. For more information, please visit their website.
For a dog-minding service with a difference, try Don't Fret Pet. Unlike other dog kennels, you dog will be placed in the home of a carefully-screened minder, who you will have the chance to meet in advance, and whose business is loving dogs. Your dog will be getting the same attention and care as at your own home, and as a bonus, your minder will be in the same locality as you. Also, if you have a puppy, they can take care of it for you as well, which is hard to find anywhere else. "Your dog will enjoy their holiday as much as you enjoy yours. Guaranteed, or your money back." So to place your dog in the care of those who "specialise in spoilt pooches", contact Don't Fret Pet via their website.
Five Star Kennels will ensure that your dog is looked after in a healthy, comfortable manner. In addition to general care, your dog will also be regularly washed and even Frontlined at your wish. The owners are dog lovers as well, and the kennel is set on spacious land, so your dog will be able to stretch its legs and enjoy itself as much as you will on your holiday. You can also check out the website for pictures of the location before visiting, and if you have decided to go ahead and reserve a place for your dog, please phone 3808 3225.
So for a dog-sitting service that will take care of your dog as much as you do, check out one of the places above.
Got excited when I read Castelan was close to the airport, since we are very close and looking for a kennel. I, however, wouldn't describe Chandler as being close to the airport. No closer than most places in Brisbane these days.
