Testimonials

I would just like to say a massive thank you to K9 Retreat for taking Scooter in as a member of the family and truly looking after him. It’s always frightening leaving your precious dog with new people but K9 Retreat made the process easy and kept the communication lines open at all times. It was fantastic to have a phone call and numerous photo uploads to ensure he had settled in and made friends. He came back with a shiny coat, a pedicure and what seems like 5kgs lighter! I cannot wait to send him back at Christmas time to see his second family and friends! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We were recommended K9 Retreat by a trusted friend and we were not disappointed. It is a fantastic set-up & location, with lots of safe space to run around, have fun & enjoy. It is not your average doggie place – there are hills, beach area and river to enjoy at this wonderful location.
Kim is highly professional and caring – we felt very reassured leaving our precious boy there. We were made to feel very welcome the moment we arrived. Kim is a trained vet nurse, so is highly experienced and our dog clearly loved her from the first moment. The number of dogs staying was small and he was matched with dogs of similar size and temperament.
He came home tired but in great health with the cleanest, softest coat ever!
We loved the continual contact & communication given whilst we were overseas, an email after his first night and then lots of pics on facebook, great to see.
This was our first visit to K9 Retreat, but won’t be our last. Thank you to Kim and her lovely staff.

I would highly recommend K9 Retreat as a safe fun place to leave your dog. My Tonka has a great time swimming in the river & playing with his new mates & didn’t want to come home. I loved being able to check up on Tonka on Facebook.  He was bathed and groomed when I picked him up. He also loved the doggy treats Kim gave him to take home. This is a great place for dogs & for your peace of mind. Kim loves dogs and appreciates how much our fur babies mean to us!

Our Wheaten, Finnegan, loves K9 Retreat and so do we. It’s a relief to know he’s able to run, romp, play, swim, in safety and security. We recommend K9 Retreat to anyone looking for peace of mind when away from home, with socialisation, stimulation, affection for the canine member of the family.

Our black lab, Sophie, stayed with Kim at K9 Retreat for two weeks whilst we were overseas. Sophie is a rescue dog with cruciate issues and sometimes needs a special eye kept on her levels of enthusiasm. (She’s a bit of a show-off when other dogs are around – especially male black labs!) We should not have worried. Kim took superb care of Sophie; contacted both us and our vet when she had concerns and looked after Soph as if she were her own.
If you want to safely leave your dog in a fun and loving home environment, with the added benefit of a small group of other sociable dogs for company, then this is the place.
