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.

  • "An absolute life saver"


    “Picked up the dog and was he ever happy. We were dog sitting at the time and ended up with too many commitments, but Samford had a spot and we got the dog in last minute. Absolute life saver. Price was good too.”

  • "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.”

  • "I have never taken Jaffa anywhere else"

  • "I have always found reservations easy and staff super helpful."


    “I have boarded my dogs (first Joss, and now Moss) 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.”

  • "Highly recommended!"


    “Our dog Saffy loved her recent stay at the Samford Pet Resort. For such an energetic dog, she came home so placid and happy. She also got to make a few friends whilst there, which is a big thing for her because she's usually quite shy and timid. Thanks must go to the wonderful staff at the Pet Resort. I would highly recommend Samford Pet Resort for your pets.”

  • "Abby loves going there"


    “Abby loves going there, she responds well to the love she receives. Abby had a medical issue with her ear and she was cared for very well.”
