Accommodation for our canine companions
Quintessential Quarters offers the ultimate in accommodation and security for our canine companions. Each kennel has a large sleeping area and extra large, tiled, undercover run. All have a thermostatically controlled heating and humidification system.
...meaning that your dog has its own individual kennel. Each boarder is given one to one attention and all the love and care they deserve. If you have more than one dog, then they can reside together for added comfort and reassurance. All dogs have supervised daily access to a secure dog adventure playground, built especially for stimulation and enrichment.
Each guest is assessed to gain details such as eating habits, medication, sleeping patterns,
behavioural issues, nervousness and anxieties. These findings are recorded on our pet admin
program, which we can then refer to during subsequent visits.
In accordance with the Animal Boarding Establishment Act 1963, a current vaccination certificate must be produced for each animal on the day of arrival otherwise boarding will be refused.
We ask that all boarders are fully vaccinated which must include Bordetella bronchiseptica (Bb) - kennel cough, wormed and regularly treated for fleas. Please consult your Veterinary Surgeon for more information.
