At Wellington Park we cater for ALL breeds of dogs. Due to our picturesque location your dog will get to enjoy nature at its best. We have several different play yard areas and some of those are undercover so regardless of what the Melbourne weather is doing your dog will get to enjoy their complimentary playtime every single day.

If your dog is having trouble adapting to the daily environment our caring pet care staff will take them to climate controlled room that is nice and quiet. We find this helps those dogs that are here for the first time or that are a little bit more timid to adapt at their own pace in a quieter area than the main kennel block.

Our main kennel blocks whilst having an outdoor feel allowing lots of natural light and fresh air are fully sheltered from the elements making your pets stay with us nice and cozy. We also have climate controlled accommodation available in our Pet suites, which are equipped with air conditioning in the warmer months and heating in the cooler months.

All kennels are cleaned daily using a high pressure washer and viral cleaning sanitisation to ensure they are kept hygienically clean to ensure your dogs stay is not only pleasurable but healthy too.

Accommodation & Services

Our standard accommodation is amongst the main block of our facility ensuring your dog gets lots of human interaction throughout their stay. Each run allows your dog to stretch their legs in their spacious run and has its very own bed area that is raised off the ground, with lots of comfortable bedding. The bedding area is also sheltered from the rest of the run which allows your dog to retreat for some time out when they feel like a bit of alone time.

All our runs are kept hygienically clean and get plenty of fresh air and natural light whilst still being sheltered from all the elements. As a complimentary service every dog will enjoy a playtime in one of our specially designed play yards and for the friendly pooch you can choose to have your dog share their accommodation with a new like- minded friend. All pets that do share are matched by their temperament and monitored closely to ensure everyone is getting along and all dogs are enjoying a holiday of their own.

We also have a range of special services available that are a great way to make sure your pooch has the time of their life whilst they are on holiday with us
