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.

Recognising that things aren't quiet right is very important, little things will tell us that your pet is unwell.
It could be a loss of appetite, feeling lethargic or a change in its normal behaviour, so early detection
and taking action is essential. If this were to happen, we have a very special area where we can
monitor your pet and keep a record of any changes. Sometimes it is necessary to seek medical

The owner, Jacqui Smith, has Veterinary nurse training, is a qualified Pet First Aider and has the responsibility and experience to give medicines
according to instructions given by the owner's Veterinary Surgeon.

If your pet requires medication then a medical chart will be created identifying the prescription and
dosage, you will be asked to check the details and sign the form. During your pet's stay, each dose
given is recorded on the medical chart.

Each guest is fully insured up to the policy maximum and offers cover against any untimely illness or
injury during its stay. Pre-existing conditions, pregnancy and vaccinations do not apply.

Socialisation days at Quintessential Quarters are action packed, full of activity and are aimed at the first time user. The intention is to constructively occupy your dog throughout it's stay which will dramatically reduce behavioural problems such as hyperactivity, destructive chewing and barking.

Enrichment is also an important element allowing off lead activities in our purpose built enclosed play zone. The area is designed to stimulate the dog's mind by discovery, through sight, touch, smell, sound and taste. Each dog will be fully supervised and receive 1-2-1 care by our trained staff. Appropriate feedback will be offered at the end of each session giving peace of mind to any dog lover

“Socialisation is a life time process of carefully
exposing your dog to new sounds, images, smells and situations”

“Done correctly it will significantly reduce
unfavourable reactions and your dog will see
these occurrences as normal and non-threatening”

Check in from 8am - so you beat the rush.
An early walk or play in the enrichment area
