Kip Hunter Valley is New South Wales' premier dog and cat boarding facility.

About Us

Why choose Kip Hunter Valley?

Spacious green yards

Kip Hunter Valley has 10 acres of beautiful grounds, including four green play yards and loads of bushwalking trails. Each hotel room also has an individual sunny grass yard for our guests to have a run, say “Hi” to new neighbours through the fence or enjoy a snoozy sunbake.

Lovely indoor rooms

Our resort-style rooms are big enough to fit a full sized double bed so even our largest guests have heaps of room to lounge around & stretch out.

And don’t worry about the heat of summer or cool of winter either as our hotel rooms are really well insulated, ensuring a nice temperature all year round.

Water Fun Park

Our Doggy Water Fun Park is Australia’s first purpose built dog splash park, and from the amount of fun our guests are having it was the right decision to get one built!

If your dog loves chasing a ball through fountains or cooling off in the pool, adding the Triple Fun package to their stay is the perfect treat.

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.

Rocky and Casper

They updated us every day with adorable videos that showed how comfortable he was getting every day. Not to mention how big their space is and how much fun they have at the water park! I could not recommend this place more!

Colo Colo

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.
