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.

"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.”
"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."
"10/10 would recommend"
“We hadn’t left our dogs for a weekend trip before and were a little nervous about their first visit to SPR. It turns out we had nothing to worry about - staff were friendly and the dogs were really happy. They were so excited to arrive that they didn’t even look back as they made their way to the kennel. 10/10 would recommend.”
"A true pet resort for your pets' holiday!"
“Clean, exceptional service. A true pet resort for your pets' holiday!”
"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."
“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.”
