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.

"Absolutely fantastic service"
“Felt comfortable leaving our spoilt Cavoodle, this was our 3rd stay. The staff are very friendly & caring. The booking, drop off and collection is so easy! We love the Facebook photos to show how much fun they are having. Will definitely be bringing her back the next time we go away. Thanks so much”
"I wouldn’t consider anywhere else"
“We are moving away from Samford shortly to another part of Brisbane but we will absolutely use Samford Pet Resort again for our 10 month old Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy and elderly 11 year old cat again... I wouldn’t consider anywhere else.”
"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."
“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.”
“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.”
"All four animals came home happy & healthy"
“This is an exceptional pet resort. My animals came home clean and the dogs were freshly washed... I was satisfied that SPR was as affordable as other resorts, if not more so in some cases - and their reputation much better! Given the thorough check of vaccinations and pet health, I knew my animals would be protected from any health concerns they could come into contact with from other animals."
