Lakeview Pet Retreat is now Kip Brisbane!

We couldn't be more excited about joining the Kip family alongside Kip Hunter Valley (formerly Akuna Pet Resorts).

Kip Brisbane is Queensland's favourite dog and cat boarding facility.

We’re no ordinary pet hotel. At Kip Brisbane, we’ve reinvented dog boarding and the traditional cattery to create happy days and stays for your furry family member.

Happy Customers

We have been going to Kip for nearly 2 years now and we love it. The staff are amazing and love and treat our boys as if they were their own. We couldn’t be happier with the care we receive, and we feel like we are part of the Kip family, not just another customer.

10/10 would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere for their best mate. We have been sending our Fergus to doggy daycare for over a year now and he is always treated with the utmost care and respect and treated like royalty. Plenty of playtime and socialising with the other pups and staff. Even the odd daytime photo and update of what he's been up to. He always looks forward to Daycare Day.



Hiccups stay with these guys was beyond amazing! These guys go above and beyond for you fur babies. I have recommended them for all my friends and family and will be going with them from now on when we need her looked after.
