Looking for dog or cat boarding in Melbourne? We’ve got you covered!
Formerly ABBA Boarding Kennels & Cattery, we’ve joined the Kip family as Kip Melbourne South East.
Our state-of-the-art facilities provide your pet a safe and comfortable environment, no matter how long they stay!About Us
Whether you have a small, fluffy pup, or a bigger and more active dog, we'll take care of them! All rooms have indoor and outdoor spaces, so that your dog can explore all aspects of their holiday home and enjoy the room at their own pace.
Every trip to Kip includes your own room, playtime with our highly trained staff and pupdates throughout the stay!
Premium dog kibble is also included in every room rate, but we can also cater for special diets if you would like to prepare your own food.
Don’t just live with poor behaviour from your dog. We have tailored dog training solutions that stick for each dog and owner to make your relationship the best it can be.
Over the years, we have been able to develop a range of Dog Training services that give both owners and dogs great outcomes and therefore cement the relationship between dog and owner (and family).
We understand how and what dogs think and most importantly how they learn, so with this knowledge comes the application of putting it into use.
Choose from our exclusive Board & Train Programs, or Canine Coaching.
If your dog deserves the very best (as they all should), treat them to a stay with us in our Penthouse Suites. Our suites all have extra space, a TV, climate-control heating and cooling, as well as special designer beds including wool blankets.
All furry guests will also enjoy a complimentary hydro bath for stays over 2 days.
Need someone to care for your feline friends? Kip boasts a premium cattery which includes a cat condo with multi-level scratching poles and sleeping cubbies. Our catteries are also climate controlled and have a TV and radio to keep your cat entertained during their stay.
Upgrade to our luxury suites which have extra room for those morning and afternoon stretches - perfect for the multi-cat household!
It's important to keep your furry friends active and fit, even while on holiday. Your pooch can play in our play yards to their hearts' content.
You can also add-on additional play time with Super Playtime or Social Playtime, giving your dog the chance to get the enrichment and stimulation they love.
Can't make the trip to us? No problem, we'll come to you! Take advantage of our door-to-door transport service, where our customised Kip-mobile will pick up and drop off your furry friend straight to and from your home.
