How long has Akuna Pet Resort been there and how long have you been running it?

There have been dog boarding kennels on this site for close to 40 years.

We have been here as ‘Akuna Pet Resort’ since 2000.

We are proud to say that during this time we have vastly improved our pet accommodation and added a variety of care packages for our furry guests.

Shortly after arriving, we realised that the way people owned pets has changed, in the sense that dogs no longer lived outside, but instead lived indoors as loved members of the family. They still wanted to go outdoors and run around and lie in the sun; but when the family was indoors watching TV or sleeping or eating, so were they. This meant that the outdoor accommodation we were offering was out of step with how dogs were living in their home environment.

So began our quest to build a pet resort that felt like a little ‘home away from home’. In 2008, our new Akuna Pet Resort replaced our old dog boarding kennels and overnight the quality of our pet accommodation went from a ‘back packers’ to ‘The Hilton’. Our guests now enjoy the comfort of their own comfortable, private hotel room with attached grass garden yard for sun baking and saying ‘Hi’ to their new dog neighbours. A big trampoline bed, a polar fleece blanket, a little bit of gentle radio music and you have a room fit for a king (or dog)!

Knowing that we have built the best quality of pet accommodation you will find anywhere in Australia should reassure you that you have found the perfect place for your furry ones’ holiday.
