I have no words except 5 stars!!! Teddy had a long stay at Kip. We were so worried because he’s never been in boarding before this. We received photos & videos each and every day & it made us feel so calm & allowed us to actually enjoy our holiday more knowing that he was well taken care of.

How we do things
Human contact

We believe pet accommodation should feel like home. All of our guests enjoy playtime with our team of animal-loving carers and heaps of exercise in our massive play yards and bushwalking trails.
Door-to-door pickup
We’ll arrive at your door to meet & greet you and your pup. This gives everyone a moment to get used to each other before heading off. This is an important part of what makes a ‘happy stay’ work so well.
Regular Pup-dates
Leaving your pet somewhere new can be a bit daunting. That’s why we send video & photo updates throughout the day to let you know how your pup is going – so you’ll know they’re safe and having fun.
