Thread: Boarding Kennel recommendations in Victoria (for 2 staffies)

    Default Boarding Kennel recommendations in Victoria (for 2 staffies)

    Hi all
    just wondering if anyone can recommend a good boarding kennel in Victoria (ideally north but am happy to drive). I need to board 2 staffies for a few weeks - as with a lot of staffies they crave human contact (due probably in part to being spoiled and not left on their own very often) and if they're just left in their little room all day / night they get bored and aggitated and they had a fight last time I left them somewhere. I know we can't really avoid that without separating them but I thought if someone else has staffies and has had a good experience with someone I could go along and have a look.

    thanks

    oh sorry - that wasn't very clear...ideally northern suburbs of Melbourne - but in saying that I've used some out in Seymour which is about 100km from where I live & I'm happy to do that.

    Ummm... don't want to seem like I'm plugging myslef too much or anything, but I do dog minding. I live in the North Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Greensborough, if you know where that is

    If you want any info, private message me.


    If you want a kennel facility, I'd probably advise Welcome Kennels

    Ummmmmm - as per above - this is really not a forum for personal plugs or people who want some business ! So could you give me some more information regarding 'Welcome Kennels' ?

    Hi Riley, I don't really know what your problem is with me, but (given you're a "senior member") I feel immaturity isn't really the best way to resolve it. If you have one, then please private message me with your concerns.

    If you would like some information regarding Welcome Kennels then I'm happy to oblige, however I honestly don't think you want the information, given that Muz was the person that started this thread and you seem to have problems with my previous posts (and therefore probably recommendations also)

    Muz, (and others interested) if you would like some information about Welcome Kennels, here's their website.

    thanks for your tips everyone; always appreciated - it's a bit of a maze out there when you start googling for them so always helpful to get a few referrals before I hop in the car to check them out. I used to use one in Seymour but can't for the life of me remember the name.
    Thanks Belinda - I had a look at your website - hadn't really thought of a dog minding service before but definitely something to look in to (although I think I'd be stressing that my dogs are driving some poor person nuts & being a trainer you'd think my dogs are very badly trained LOL! ). Think I'll go with a kennel this time around so will definitely look at Welcome; heated rooms with piped music...think I could stay there myself!

    Hi Muz,

    A lot of people leave their dogs with us and worry that they'll be driving us crazy. But to be honest with you, that's the reason a lot of people are repeat clients with us, because their 'mischievous' pooches get some basic training while in our care too and they get to go for walks every day and have the comfort of inside/outside home environment, just like at home. instead of a room/run.

    Welcome is a pretty good establishment as far as kennels go, so I hope your dogs enjoy it there. Let us know how they go...

    I am confused. I read threads about kennels and made to order dog coats and in this thread someone is pulled up for saying they do dog minding. It does seem somewhat inconsistent?
