Boarding with Kip
Our comfy classic rooms at Kip Canberra are a private retreat for your courageous canine. Unlike the traditional kennel, we think all dogs need their own spaces to have time to unwind, as even the most confident dogs can become stressed and anxious without some alone time.
Kip's dog kennels in Canberra offer a cosy interior space with a private outdoor grassy area. All rooms are well insulated, keeping them warm in the winter and plenty of fresh air during the warmer months. Comfort comes standard at Kip.
Starts From: $49 per day
Playtime, Playtime, & More Playtime!
Running around in the fresh air with other dogs is so important for dogs of all shapes and sizes. At Kip's Canberra dog boarding centre, your dog will have plenty of time to socialise with the other four-legged residents. All pups are grouped together with dogs of similar sizes and temperaments to ensure everyone gets along, boosting social confidence in the process.
All play sessions will be supervised and are balanced out with downtime. Kip offer the dog kennels Canberra pet owners turn to for the safest and most stimulating outdoor fun for their canines.
Extra Bush Walks
One of our most popular add-on activities at Kip's Dog boarding Canberra is the bush walk. Nestled in the heart of rural ACT, Kip has a vast world to explore just outside the facilities, where your dog will be taken for a guided walk on a leash. Exploring new sights and sounds is important for dogs and will help them get more comfortable in unfamiliar situations.
Mealtime at Kip
Mealtime at our Canberra dog boarding centre is an exciting part of the day. All dogs are served Royal Canin dog food as standard, with servings to meet the dietary requirements of every dog in line with what they get at home. If your pup has any special requirements, please let a staff member know, and we’ll tailor the menu to suit. We can also incorporate food from home if need be.
Kip also has a range of treats to snack on as required, like pig ears, small bones, roo-sticks, and Kongs with peanut butter to make them feel even better!
All mealtimes are watched closely by our staff to ensure everyone behaves, and if you have any special food brought in from home, your dog will be the only one eating it.
Finding time for another road trip for your pup whilst trying to sort out your own holiday is a hassle. So let us help you out. We'll send a van to your home to collect your dog on a day that suits you best and bring them back to the Kip facility. They'll have aircon the entire trip, be safely transported in a crate, and have a team member on board to keep them relaxed.
When it's time to come home, we'll do the same thing in reverse, bringing your furry friend right back to your door and into your arms.
Just wanted to say Thank you all so much for showing Ellie that her holidays with Kip Hunter ‘Happy Stays’ are so much fun. We loved receiving daily videos of Ellie and helped us enjoy our holiday as well knowing that she was so well looked after and having fun. All the staff are so very helpful and having Ellie picked up and bought home was a blessing, as she is only 1 year old and we were a little cautious of how she would go on her first stay but she has come home happy and relaxed. Thanks once again to everyone who helped Ellie enjoy her first holiday stay.
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.
Rocky and Casper
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.
It is rare to find an ethical, well managed dog boarding facility, especially one which genuinely caters for dogs with special needs and doesn't "dog stack".
Our dog(s) have been staying since 2007 and continue to do so.
Each Kip dog boarding Canberra experience comes with premium dry food, a spacious room complete with private indoor and outdoor space, and one-on-one playtime with our dog-loving Kip crew. We’ll also give your precious pooch a luxurious warm hydro bath and blow dry on departure, so they’re fresh and ready for cuddles when they come home to you. We’re not like the other dog kennels in Canberra. You can fully paw-sonalise your dog’s stay by adding extra treats and fun activities to their holiday with us. Get in touch with a team member to inquire about what you can add to your dog’s stay.
Can you administer my dog’s medication?
All dogs are looked after with close attention during their stay at Kip. If your dog requires a particular medication, each member of our team is experienced in administering medicine and will be able to do so as instructed by you.
All you need to do is pack their medication in a well-labelled container and advise our team on how frequently it needs to be delivered. We charge $5/day to prepare and administer medicines for all dogs under our care in Canberra.
