Doggy Lodge

All our canine guests are treated to individual care and attention at our Doggy Lodge.

Socialisation and fun are key to our guests’ enjoyment with ‘outside time’ for 2 – 3 hours a.m. and 2 – 3 hours p.m. (weather permitting of course). We offer large grassed exercise areas for the more energetic guests and smaller, quieter spots for the elderly or shy. The facilities are comfortable, spacious, clean, hygienic and safe. We welcome inspection prior to booking, during our Business Hours on Tue / Wed & Thursday


Breakfast is served around 10ish, allowing all guests a siesta or ‘quiet time’ between then and 4.00pm (our closed time). This ensures adequate rest and relaxation.

Guests staying with us are treated to a complimentary bath after two nights stay (depending on size & breed) making sure they are going home smelling and feeling great.

We feed Black Hawk a premium, highly palatable diet suitable for all breeds. If your canine friend is on a special diet we recommend you bring it along for the duration of their stay with us.
