Need someone to care for your fur family member while you are away? Boarding is available at our Devonport, Burnie and Launceston Dogs’ Homes

All our staff are experienced in dog care, so you can be assured your furry family member will be well cared for. The kennels are comfortable and your dog will have time in an exercise yard with toys each day. Our staff will provide enrichment activities for your pooch, including stuffed Kongs and ice treats on warmer days.

What do you need?

Your dog needs to have a current vaccination, be microchipped and wormed, and have other medications up to date. When dropping your dog off at our Home, please bring evidence of vaccinations, contact details of your vet, and any medication your dog requires while in our care.

You will need to complete a boarding contract so please allow plenty of time.

Drop-offs and collections must be during our normal opening hours (10.30am to 4pm at most Homes). Please discuss a drop-off time when you make your booking and advise us of your planned collection time when you drop your dog off.
