Our dog kennel offers various accommodations dependent upon your dog’s needs.
At our kennel, we present a number of options to ensure your pet is happy, well fed and exercised for the duration of their stay. Whether your dog is staying in one of our spacious dog kennels or your cat in our standalone Cattery buildings, your pets will be well cared for.
Our staff, management, and owners are dedicated and committed to the well being of your pet. All are well trained in the care and handling of your pet as well. We are a member of the Pet Care Services Association, formerly ABKA.
We offer the concerned pet owner a “Total Concept” facility, providing each pet, at any stage of life, with an environment that greatly exceeds basic necessities.
As an additional service for your dog, Puppy Love offers Playschool – a 20 minute service that gives additional individualized personal attention with one of our Social Directors in addition to your pets’ regular outside exercise times.
Your pet will be taken to our large 1/4 acre exercise yard for exercise, games and treats. Playschool is great for all ages, activities range dependant on your pets preferences. This service is completely optional and never has to be decided beforehand.
A session includes the following:
Board and train
In partnership with our favorite positive reinforcement dog trainers, BabyDog and TomeyK9, we offer a purely positive reinforcement board and train service. For those of you that haven’t heard of a ‘board and train’ before – this concept means you would drop your dog off for an agreed-upon length of time (anywhere from a week to two months) at our facility, the dog trainers train you dog for you, and all you have to do is maintain what they’ve done.
Your dog will work with Master Trainer Dave Tomey, and training is offered for basic or intermediate obedience or impulsivity – with more options being added in the future. You will also get a 1hr refresher session at Puppy Love to be booked within 2-4 weeks of completing your board and train! All stays get one month of access to BabyDog’s online training platform ReadyDog. For stays of 1 month or longer, after your board and train, we will provide you with videos of what we are working on with the dog with explanations, available to you online 24/7.
Each dog gets 5 training sessions per week in a program tailored to its needs. At this stage, we’re offering training related to basic or intermediate obedience, impulsivity, and reactivity (excluding human aggression), with more to come!
We take pride in the comfortable and loving environment we’ve created for your pet.
We strive to provide the best dog boarding in Victoria and to simply take care of your dog’s needs while you’re away. Rest at ease, knowing your dog will be treated like our own family. Our goal is to give you peace of mind while giving your precious dog a peace of heaven.
That’s why Puppy Love is exclusively an individual boarding facility. Whether indoors or playing outside, dogs from different families are never mixed in order to reduce stress and to eliminate the possibility of injury due to fighting or roughhousing.
