Dog Boarding Kennels                   Makeabooking.jpg - small      

Shaded Dog exercise area at Ponderosa Pet resortOur prices are reasonable, and are all inclusive of the food, pen, bed, bedding, and the playtime / exercise time in our spacious gardens.
All Dogs in our boarding kennel enclosures are supplied with:
  • A dog kennel
  • Clean, fresh bedding which is raised off the ground / trampoline bedding style.  
  • Your dog can decide to keep warm in the dog kennel or off the concrete via the raised floor.  

All boarding kennels enclosures are out of the weather, with full roof covers, ample ventilation, out of direct sunlight, and we ensure that the size of the boarding kennel accommodates the small to extra large dog.  We also have indoor pens for the more delicate dogs who need to be kept indoors during the cooler winter period.

The Melbourne boarding kennels complex is set in an outside country environment close to Melbourne Airport; your pet does not stare at a blank wall all day but gets to look onto the large grassed exercise area where birds fly about and air circulates.  Their exercise/playtime allows your dog to let off any steam, under supervision, and includes interaction with our professional staff.  Two dogs running at Ponderosa boarding kennelThey are given ample time to explore and enjoy their time out in the garden.  We do not practice multiple dog exercise times at our Boarding Kennels unless they are from the same household and stipulated by the owners, each dog is exercised individually.
We provide top quality food, comensurate with your dog's breed and size, so feel free to ask if you want further details on this.
We can also arrange dog pick up and drop off as required.
