Where to board your dog in Melbourne

Kepala Pet Resort & Canine Country Club

Travel Diggers Rest

When only five stars, an outdoor heated lagoon pool and hydrobaths are enough, check your pet into the County Club just 15 minutes from Tullamarine. It also offers four off-leash activity areas, an agility area and sand run, and an indoor heated pool. Sorry – you don’t get to stay here too.

The Pets Hotel

Travel Port Melbourne

If you're fleeing the real world for a vacation, we'd reckon it would be fair to reward your furry pals with a staycation too. The luxury pet facility in Port Melbourne functions as both a day-care and hotel offering playtime and spa sessions while you're away. Pet pooch been good all summer? Book the presidential suite. The suite of the highest range encompasses a two-room space with twin designer beds, a flat screen TV, daily playtime sessions, bedtime treats, premium-quality food and a complimentary checkout bath.
