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.

“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.”
"What's not to love"
“I love you guys - great service, wonderful friendly staff who love animals and clean facilities. Rosie - our pooch - is happy when she comes home too. What's not to love!”
"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."
"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."
"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.”
"Exceeded my expectations"
“Samford Pet Resort have exceeded all my expectations. I’m so happy I found this place. Thank you to everyone for the amazing service of providing a "pick up service" that allowed us to drop bill at a nearby vet from where he was transported to the resort, where he stayed. Although this was the first time we had arranged accommodation for our dog we had absolutely no qualms about leaving him there and this was verified when we returned and collected him. Bill looked amazing and appeared very settled.”
