Doggy Play Days!

We are very excited to announce a brand new initiative from Animal Aid Boarding Kennels – Doggy Play Days!

We welcome social and semi social dogs and will tailor a plan that suits their individual needs; whether that be large group play, small group play or dedicated one on one enrichment with our staff.

The structured program is delivered by experienced staff, with a single focus on sending your dog home happy and content.

This is an opportunity to get your dog outside the backyard and let them make new canine mates.

Your dog will enjoy:


  • Social or individual play time
  • Leash walks (and maybe a swim) around our wetlands and walking trails
  • Ball games
  • Agility yard play time
  • Treat and interactive play
  • Relaxation massages and lots of cuddles
  • Alternative indoor activities for wet weather days

Upcoming Play Days Dates 2024!

Term One – 7th February to 27th March
Term Two – 1st May to 19th June
Term Three – 24th July to 11th September
Term Four – 16th October to 11th December

Our Doggy Play Day program requires a minimum of 5 participants and payment in advance to proceed. Proof of current vaccination is required.

We know the past 18 months has been difficult for people and pets. We are seeing a increasing number of dog owners concerned about a variety of issues that have been fueled by the disruptions we have experienced in our lives. Your dog’s restricted access to new people places and puppy pals will have had an impact.

This program will provide a playful and fun environment to support your dog’s physical and mental wellbeing.
