Maldon Pet Resort, established in 2012, is located just outside Maldon in Central Victoria. We are approx 25km from Castlemaine, 30km from Maryborough and 45km from Bendigo.
We offer a specialised resort style accommodation for your canine friends. There is hands on interaction between humans and dogs every day as well as dog socialisation for those dogs that like to play with others. We also cater for those pooches that prefer a more sedentary time away from home.
The business is owned and operated by Sarah McComb, who has many years of experience in Boarding Kennels. Sarah holds Cert III in Companion Animal Services and Cert III in Dog Behaviour and Training.
Play Time and Nature Walks:
All dogs will spend most of the day in the exercise yards, weather permitting. Shade shelter is provided across all day yards to protect the dogs from the sun.
Dogs are exercised alone or in a small group, depending on the compatibility of those in the kennels.
Great care is taken to match suitable playmates, because your dogs safety is of paramount importance to us.
If requested, your dog can have one on one play time with one of our staff members (over and above the normal daily human contact). This could be playing ball, going for a walk on the property (on lead) or just sitting and petting. An additional charge of $10.00 for 20 minutes is charged for this service.
All dogs staying with us for five or more days receive a complimentary Hydrobath. Long coated breeds or matted dogs are excluded. If you would like your dog to have a bath while on a shorter stay, we offer a hydrobath at $15.00 per dog.
We have a very strict policy regarding vaccinations. Evidence of a C5 vaccination within the last 12 months is required before admission. If your dog has not had a C5 vaccination (which includes Canine Cough coverage) we recommend that it be done at least 14 days prior to coming into the kennels. However, you should consult your vet as full inoculation can take up to 6 weeks to achieve in some circumstances. We make this request for the health and safety of your pet and others.
Dogs are fed on a high performance dry food and chicken mince. Older dogs are fed a "special care" dry food specially formulated for their digestive systems. Puppies are also catered for with a high protein diet. Twice daily feeding is provided if needed for all dogs. Dogs with special dietary or medication requirements can be accommodated. Out of hours medication will incur an additional charge. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring their normal food along with them.
Should your dog require veterinary care, we will endeavour to take your dog to your own Vet, if possible. In the case of an emergency we will take your dog to one of our local Vets. Our Vet will also contact you if needed. If we believe your dog needs Vet attention, we call the Vet first and endeavour to contact owners as soon as we can. If owners cannot be contacted, the Vets decision will be final and all costs will be payable by owners.
