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.

"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!”
"Worth every cent we paid!"
“Happy dogs when we got back meant that it was worth every cent we paid!”
"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 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.”
"I have never taken Jaffa anywhere else"
“I have never taken Jaffa anywhere else - at 21 years, she deserves the best.”
"My dog Boots always comes out healthier than when he goes in"
“Staff were lovely, very helpful and prompt... My dog Boots always comes out healthier than when he goes in."
