    Paul and Julie have spent many years since taking over in 2003 improving and redesigning the accommodation and pay areas within the resort, so your pets are guaranteed to have as much of a fabulous holiday as you!

    Dog Boarding

    At our family run boarding kennels, each of our dog guests have their own spacious individual run that suits their size and personality, as well as a separate clean, warm and enclosed sleeping area with optional heating pads available for that extra touch of luxury. Our dog guests instantly become a welcome member of our extended family at Yarra Valley Pet Resort with lots of cuddles, outdoor playtime and exercise (at least 3 to 4 hours in one of our 20+ exercise yards) to make their stay with us truly memorable.

    We also provide optional daily nature walks, so our dog guests can sniff and explore to their hearts content, and along with our one-on-one playtimes, hydro baths and nail clipping services, our dog guests have an awesome holiday at our Yarra Valley Dog Kennels!

    The gardens that surround our cattery are a bird lovers paradise, so our feline guests are never bored! Most of our feline guests spend their time snoozing, watching the birds in the garden or stepping out into our central cattery area where they have scratching posts, toys and soothing music. They also have the option to sit out on out fully enclosed sunny verandah, which makes for the perfect spot to watch the world go by.

    Amazing staff, they really care for the animals. My dog gets excited every time we arrive there. Great value too.

    Our two fur babies love going to Badger Creek, the staff are amazing, we have been going there for 10 years or more 🙂 Wouldn’t go anywhere else!

    Looked after our two cats for 4 months. What a great job Julie and the gang did with our much loved fur babies Sketch and Leroy. They certainly loved them like their own and took excellent care of our kitties. Can’t thank them enough…
