Our large dog complex is designed to house dogs of medium size up to those extra large pooches. Each dog has its own fully insulated brick and concrete kennel which comprises of an inside sleeping area with immediate access to an outside enclosed run. This ensures the dog stays dry and warm in winter and cool in summer and yet can still see its surroundings while in its kennel. (Please read our terms and conditions regarding boarding during school holidays)
Each kennel can accommodate up to three dogs, depending on their size, so family groups or good friends can stay together in the one kennel.
All kennels are fitted with raised beds but we do ask that you provide your dogs with their own clean bedding to make them feel more at home. A favourite toy and coat in winter is also a good idea. We also have “snugglesafe” microwaveable heat pads available for purchase or hire for those wanting them during the colder months of the year.
All the large dog runs look out onto the spacious grassed exercise areas in which they play during the day. Here at Berrima Boarding Kennels the dogs spend the majority of their day out in these exercise areas where they are free to run and play either on their own or in compatible groups, depending on their temperament.
Because we know the importance of exercise for most dogs, generally they have between four and five hours a day of free running. The only exception to this is when the weather is inclement and then they have several short runs morning and afternoon.
Should your dog be an escape artist or fence climber don’t worry, we have two areas that are completely netted over so they too can have a run and play.
(Please be sure to advise us of this at the time of booking)
Large dog rates vary from $33 to $37(as at 01.07.18) per day depending on breed, temperament and whether they have been desexed. Our rates are fully inclusive of food, exercise and in most cases a bath before leaving.
All boarding fees are calculated on a calendar day basis regardless of time of admission or departure.
