Caring for a variety of special canine needs

The Doggery’s purpose-built services cater to a wide variety of canine special needs. Active guests can make the most of the extensive rural acreage, exploring and exercising off-leash while they interact with, play, and enjoy the company of other canine pack members and staff. In contrast, less mobile guests, including those recovering from surgery and in rehabilitation, can relax and heal in their own custom accommodation or day rest setup; while being tended to by our qualified, compassionate team.

Guest Management System

At The Doggery we use KennelBooker to help keep our clients up to dote. With KennelBooker clients are able to maintain their own personal and pet records, upload vaccination certificates and medical notes, as well as receive booking information and invoices.To make a booking please email

24/7 Special Needs Boarding

Our special needs boarding services have been designed to ensure all family members get the holiday or time out they deserve.

Boarding fees vary in line with each guest’s needs and start from $95 per day. 10% discount applies to sibling dogs and for stays over 21 days.

Post-Surgical Rehabilitation

The Doggery cover all aspects of post-surgical recovery and rehabilitation including, but not limited to, spinal surgeries, lumpectomies, orthopaedic surgeries including TPLO's, TTA's, FHO's,  Cruciate repairs and more.

Our Veterinary Nurses here at The Doggery have well over a decade of experience each in the field ranging from surgical nursing, emergency and critical care nursing and more. With each of our cases they can apply all their previous experiences to help them achieve the best post-surgical recovery.

We are equipped to provide physiotherapy as part of your dog's post-surgical recovery plan, including Photizo light therapy and TENS machine stimulation. 

Each post-surgical guest has a tailored treatment plan for the duration of their stay to ensure optimal care. As part of this we also liaise with their vet or specialist to ensure all their needs are fully met. 

Our facility has been designed with surgical recovery in mind. Post-surgery, dogs can recover in our special recovery room where our highly trained team are close on hand to attend to any need.

A great service particularly in those ‘busy’ weeks. Such a treat to see all their photos having fun where they wouldn’t normally. A blessing to have exhausted puppies in the evening when you are too. Thanks team.
