  • Our retreat offers over two and a half acres of dedicated guest areas for your dog to play and stay active.
  • Enrichment is key for our guests, and we provide a range of interactive play areas, water play, and sandpits for digging.
  • Our guest lounge is the perfect place to relax, with comfy beds and a couch for your dog to watch movies or listen to music.
  • Your dog will have their dedicated bay to sleep in with their own bedding or our comfy beds during rest times.
  • A selection of crates are available if your dog is used to being crated at night.
  • Our play areas are fully supervised.
  • We understand that every dog is different, and we have developed an environment that caters to multiple dog’s needs.
