General Information

Hours for arrival and departures:

Mon – Sun: 8am – 10am and 4pm - 6pm

Requests for either between these two slots or beyond these hours will be considered for an additional fee (between 10am and 4pm is $50).

Inspection is most welcome but please make a mutually suitable time first. No inspections will take place between 10.30am and 3pm to allow guests some much needed mid day rest time. Once we have passed your inspection we would like to offer your dog a free trial day to make sure they are suitable for us and what we offer.

Food supplied by Dinky Dogz is Primal canned food and Acana (Orijen) dry food. Guests are fed twice daily. Owners can bring their own food if they desire but there is no discount on rate. Please name the food with both owner and guest names.

Guests must be up to date with their vaccinations including canine cough and supporting documents MUST be bought with you. Guests should be wormed and deflead within two weeks of boarding with Dinky Dogz and if the guest is in long term care enough flea treatment left with guest for further applications. Guests must be registered and have their own collar and lead left for their stay.

Dinky dogz does not board Staffy or Staffy cross dogs and have found Jack Russell and Fox Terriers traditionally do not do well here so will not be taking bookings for these breeds. Any aggression or issues whilst in care from your dog will be reported to you on your return and may affect any further reservations.
