Comfortable Canine Stays with Kip

Classic Rooms

The classic room at our Central Coast dog boarding comes with enough space for a comfy bed and some space to walk around to stretch during downtime. The rooms have both indoor and outdoor space. All the rooms are fully insulated and have lots of natural light to help your pooch get comfortable.

Keeping In Touch

If you are missing your pooch whilst you're on holiday, make sure to follow Kip on social media to see the frequent updates via the Customer Portal and on our social media pages. We can send you a daily photo and video update of the fun your dog is getting up to.

Bush Walks with Kip

An active dog is a happy dog - exploring new sights and smells will keep your pup stimulated during their stay with Kip. At Kip's dog boarding on the Central Coast, you can add a scenic bushwalk to their stay, where your dog will go out on their lead once a day to explore some of the bushland around Kip's facility. Exploring the bush is a great way for your pup to get their exercise as well as learn to get comfortable with a new environment.

Social Play

Socialising is important for every dog's development. Positive interactions with other dogs help them to understand the temperaments of other dogs. When your dogs play at Kip, we'll group them up with dogs of both similar size and character, to help them get their confidence up. We'll also supervise all their play sessions, to ensure everyone has fun and behaves.

Food and Treats

Does your pup have its own meal plan? At Kip, we can accommodate dietary requirements for all our furry residents. We serve premium dried dog food for all our guests, with tailored servings to meet the needs of each dog. For those dogs who like their own food, we can serve your meals from home. Just ensure it's clearly labelled, and our staff will make sure your dog gets their meal. We supervise mealtimes for all our dogs, and we'll make sure that if you bring any food in, your pup is the only one eating it.

Happy Customers

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.
