Why we’re the Best
I’d like to treat my pet to a holiday!
“I have been bringing my dogs to Samford for years. They have loved it every single time. Can not praise the staff enough for their help and understanding in having to deal with a crazy dog mum even after so long.“
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”
“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.”
