Why we’re the best

Why we’re the Best

What makes us different from other pet boarding facilities?


We don’t just meet the standard of care and accommodation required by the PIAA (Pet Industry Association), but Karen our director actually sat on the PIAA board to write the standards that need to be met in order to hold accreditation. Blake, our other director, was also elected for Director of Pet Board and Training for Australia (PIAA) in 2013 for a 3 year term. He found himself reviewing the codes of practice for the industry that were written by his mother when she stood as PIAA director. We are also proud to say we are the only accredited QLD pet resort member of PIAA.

  • "Easy reservations and super helpful staff."


    “I have boarded my dogs (first Joss, and now Moss) ever since I came to Brisbane in 2006. I have always found reservations easy and staff super helpful. The staff rang to see if they could arrange for Moss to have a thorough grooming while at Samford. I appreciated this as I have been hospitalised on and off for the last 12+ months and his coat had become very shaggy as he was missing regular brushing."

  • "Genuine care"


    “An excellent place to leave your pet, they are well looked after and given a lot of attention. The staff genuinely care and enjoy for the animals.”

  • "There is no other place I would leave her"


    “My cat has been having her holidays here for nearly 20 years. I've never had a complaint and looks fantastic when she gets home. I love to read her "report" card to see what she has been up to. She has stayed for a few days to 6 weeks over this time. There is no other place I would leave her. THANKYOU Samford and the Team.”

  • "Worth every cent we paid!"


    “Happy dogs when we got back meant that it was worth every cent we paid!”

    Amanda

  • "What's not to love"


    “I love you guys - great service, wonderful friendly staff who love animals and clean facilities. Rosie - our pooch - is happy when she comes home too. What's not to love!”

    Toni

  • "Love your work!"


    “My two dogs visit the Samford Pet Resort on a regular basis and we have nothing but great things to report. The staff care for the pets if they were their own and I always know my dogs had a great time because they sleep the whole trip home! It's great to see my dogs get so excited on arrival and that the staff remember their names. Love your work guys!”
