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”
"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."
"I have never taken Jaffa anywhere else"
“I have never taken Jaffa anywhere else - at 21 years, she deserves the best.”
"Making kennelling so much easier"
“They even let us know who Peggy will be rooming with (name and breed), which is essential information for my children 🙂 Thank you for always treating Peggy and ourselves so kindly... making kennelling our baby girl so much easier when we go away.”
"A great location"
“A great location - nice and quiet and out of the city and I had no problems booking in or receiving relevant information.”
"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.”
