Why Your Furry Friends Will Have a Great Time at Our Pet Hotels

In these strange times, you’d be forgiven for thinking every man/women and his/her dog (pun intended) has bought a cute new kitten or puppy. As pet lovers ourselves, that’s something we naturally welcome, especially given most of us are working from home and have more spare time than ever to nurture these newest additions to our family! Once normal life eventually returns as it no doubt will and we begin travelling or working from the office again, it’s nice to know there’s a great place your furry friends can stay. Whether you need a long-awaited post Coronavirus getaway or a short break from parenting duties, The Pets Hotel in Port Melbourne and our partners at The Pets Hotel Country Club in Lara will ensure they have a great time in our luxurious pet suites (more traditionally known as a dog kennel and cattery).

Here’s a few ways we’ll make them feel right at home:

  • In good Company: They’ll make plenty of new paw pals - Cats and dogs like humans are highly social creatures (well cats somewhat less so), who need regular social contact and thrive off close connections with their owners and other pets. When your furry friend(s) drop by our plush digs at The Pets Hotel or Pets Hotel Country Club for a short stay, they’ll be in very good company amongst other cats and dogs of all shapes and sizes. With our well trained, pet loving staff on hand to ensure fair play, they’ll get to make plenty of new paw pals in the process, giving them lifelong social skills that will help them become model citizens.

  • Socialisation: They’ll get to meet other people, besides their owners - Pets are also naturally curious creatures, not only when it comes to other cats and dogs, but also human beings too. That’s another reason why a stay at The Pets Hotel or Pets Hotel Country Club will be hugely beneficial to your furry friends in years to come – by giving them exposure to other people, besides yourself, including our super friendly staff and the owners of other pets. This helps foster the all-important socialisation process that ensures a well-adjusted pet, not to mention they’ll love all that extra attention too!

  • Healthy & happy: Daily activities will keep your pet in tip top shape - This especially applies to our doggy friends as any owner will attest! Pets being highly social creatures also need an outlet for all that energy, and what better way than through the abundance of social pet activities we host daily at our plush Port Melbourne address. From Cat Play Time, Dog & Cat “Cuddle Time”, Adventure Walks and “Super Yappy” sessions amongst other things, we’ll keep your VIP (very important pet) healthy and happy, so when home time arrives, they’ll be ready for a well deserved rest.

  • Our team of pet lovers will treat yours like our own - As a family owned labour of love with a 35 year history, The Pets Hotel and Pets Hotel Country Club’s dog kennel and cattery is staffed by our passionate team of professionally trained, devoted pet lovers who will treat your VIP (very important pet) like it’s their own. This means we’ll take the time to get to know your furry friend, their temperament, food preferences as well as their favourite activities. By doing this, we’ll build trust and affection, reducing the natural separation anxiety they’ll experience upon future visits and making their stays all that more rewarding.
