There's no place quite like home for our furry friends and many would say, home wouldn't quite feel the same without them. Given the busy lives we lead and our love for travel, unfortunately we can't always have our pets snug by our side.
Thankfully, Australia is home to some of the world's best pet boarding facilities, including the spacious The Pets Hotel Country Club at Elcho Park, just outside Geelong or around 60 Southwest of Melbourne CBD.
More than just a regular kennel for cats and dogs, Elcho Park is an entire estate where your VIP's (Very Important Pets) have ample space to run around with their play pals. At the centre of this estate is the bluestone Elcho Homestead which dates back to 1867. Pretty impressive hey? Here's a few more reasons The Pets Hotel Country Club is a great place to take your VIP's for VIP treatment.
Elcho Park has been operating as a pet boarding estate since the 1960's and for the past 25 years, it's been in the capable hands of the Hill family, namely the animal lovers Lauren, Yvonne and Alan who treat every cat and dog who stays here as if it were their own. Over that time they've built a happy customer base who've only been too happy to share their thumbs up with others.
At the heart of The Pets Hotel Country Club as the name suggests, is VIP accommodation for your furry friends. Purpose-built and climate-controlled, our expansive estate houses luxury dog suites and cat suites, offering short stays to longer lodgings, whatever timeframe meets your unique needs. With dedicated full-time staff, equipped with premium pet food and a vet on call 24/7; both you and your adorable loved ones can rest with peace of mind.
We also offer a very popular doggy day care program that runs from 7 AM – 5 PM Monday to Friday, so you can drop off your dog in the morning, say before work and pick them up in the evening. While you're away, they'll be treated to a load of fun-filled activities including ball games, exercise and plenty of cuddles, designed to help them make friends and become well socialised pets all round.
For longer stays at Elcho Park, we also offer dog obedience training with some of Victoria's best professional pooch trainers, which can be added to your pets existing accommodation for less than $35 per day. It all begins with an introductory interview with you and your furry friend, to understand their background and talk through any problems or areas you'd like to focus on. From then onwards, it's a mix of one-on-one sessions and group classes with an emphasis on fresh air and plenty of fun!
Life should be full of fun, which is a philosophy we take very seriously at The Pets Hotel Country Club. That's why we've made pet playtime and other activities a central element of your cat or dogs stay at our Elcho Park estate. Whether its running around our expansive grounds with their other paw pals (weather permitting), enjoying cuddles, massages or even a VIP photo shoot, by the time you return they'll be well played and ready for a restful night's sleep. Bliss!
