Has your pet been pawing to stay at a pet retreat?

What you need to know about your Boarding Visit

As pet pawrents ourselves, we know that leaving your pet for the first time can be stressful! Every trip to Kip includes your own room, supervised social or solo playtime, daily photo and video updates, and premium kibble meals, and we encourage pet parents to come visit the accommodation before the trip. Whether your dog loves running in our grassy yards, or your cat loves lounging in the sun, we’re sure your pet will have the best time!

To ensure everyone’s safety, please make sure that all pets are up to date with all vaccinations, and a certificate must be presented prior to check-in.

Make your visit easier!

At Kip, we offer pick-up and drop-off to our locations to provide you with convenience and ensure you have a great experience.

How We Do Things

Safe & Fun

We have lots of fun together, but balance is key, which is why we tailor our services to meet your pet’s needs.

Passionate Team

With an in-house vet and decades of industry experience, our team of highly trained pet carers (and pet lovers) will ensure your pet is in the safest hands.

Regular Updates

Leaving your pup can be stressful, so we deliver regular updates (or pup-dates) right to your phone, so you know they’re having fun!


Does my pet need to be vaccinated?

All pets must be up to date with their vaccinations and present a current certificate to the team. We are able to care for pets if they’re not desexed. Our vaccination requirements are as follows: 

  • Puppies may board 10 days after their final puppy vaccines as long as they are C5 or equivalent.

  • Kittens may board 10 days after their final kitten vaccines as long as they are F3 or equivalent.

  • Dogs must have an up-to-date C3 or better vaccine and an annual Canine Cough vaccination.

  • Cats must have an up-to-date F3 vaccination.

Does my pet need to be desexed?

We are able to care for pets if they’re not desexed. We do not take dogs in heat across our centres. To the extent your dog comes into heat whilst in our care, we will require an emergency contact to pick them up within 24 hours of being notified. We will not accommodate entire males in the same room as undesexed females (unless they're from the same fur family!).

Can you pick up my pet? When will the pet van come?

We provide door-to-door transport Brisbane-wide for an extra charge. Our driver will pick-up or drop-off your pet between 11am and 2pm, and someone must be home to facilitate the handoff.

Can I tour the facilities?

Absolutely! Simply contact us at [email protected] so our team can organize the best time for you to tour the premises. 

My pet needs medication! Can you administer it?

Absolutely! For an extra $5/pet/day, we can administer medication to your pets. Please provide all medication in a marked vet bag and provide enough medication for the entire duration of their stay.

My dog is a picky eater! Can I bring my own food?

We sure can, for an extra fee of $3/day! Please provide all required food, clearly marked and labelled. Please inform staff if your dog has any food allergies.
