We are super pleased to announce that we have been named as the recipient of the Pet Industry Association of Australia’s Boarder/Doggy Day Carer/Pet Sitter of the year award!
Original founders of Samford Pet Resort, Karen and Garth De Bruin, accepted the award on behalf of our Managing Director, Blake De Bruin, at the 2017 PIAA AusPet Awards ceremony last week.
The Pet Industry Association of Australia
Samford Pet Resort are long standing PIAA members, and share their goal to promote responsible pet ownership. The PIAA is an association where members and business owners can network and share achievements, tips and provide support. The PIAA is the voice of the pet industry when it comes to government issues and criteria.
An association with excellent standards
The PIAA prides itself on the high standard of its Code of Practice, created by its members to exceed regulator’s requirements. Here at SPR, we believe in maintaining superior service standards for our furry friends, and that’s why we’re part of the PIAA!
The award process
Members of the PIAA are nominated for awards across several different categories including boarding, training, grooming and manufacturing, to name a few. Nominees are then asked to write a short paper on their achievements and reflect on why they believe that they deserve the award. PIAA officials read and award points to each nominee, with the nominee with most outstanding points coming out on top in their category.
From humble beginnings to award-winning services
Samford Pet Resort started out as a boarding kennel and cattery in 1985 and has steadily grown to the luxury pet resort that it is today, due to the hard work of the De Bruin family. Our extensive experience in dog breeding and handling has led to a passion for superior pet services. We have offered 5-star pet accommodation since October of 2000 and continues to find innovative ways to enhance the pet accommodation sector. Blake has even directed the creation of a Pet Resort Management System to make handling information easier, more efficient and safer! Not to mention Samford Pet Resort’s dedication to keeping pet owners informed and at ease when it comes to their pet’s welfare while they’re away, through the My Pet Space service.
More than just a pet resort
At Samford Pet Resort, we are dedicated to going above and beyond average standards for pet accommodation. We offer plenty of services to enrich your pet’s life; including training, grooming, photography, insurance and even pet wedding attending! We make it easier for pet owners to entrust their fur babies into our capable hands. Because at the end of the day, we love animals and want them to love us, too!
