Thank you for visiting Paws a While!
Please peruse our website for information about our services.

Opened in October 2006, Paws a While Boarding Kennels is the first choice for discerning pet lovers from all around Newcastle, Maitland, Lake Macquarie and Port Stephens, as well as holiday makers from Sydney and the NSW Central Coast. When we decided to start Paws a While Boarding Kennels, we did so because we love our furry companions. We can't think of anything better than being able to spend all our time caring for dogs and cats.

Anyway while you're here check out our price list. As you'll see, we offer great value rates for quality boarding that you won't have to travel very far for. We're handy to everywhere! Take a look at our map and directions.

At Paws a While Boarding Kennels we provide outstanding pet accommodation, including long individual outdoor runs and large exercise areas for dogs, and multi-level, air-conditioned pen boarding for cats.

We know you have a choice of boarding services for your pet (or pets). At Paws a While Boarding Kennels we'll listen to you, and we'll care for your special family members just as you would.


Naturally, we welcome the opportunity to personally show you our facilities. Please call ahead to arrange a walk-through, and keep in mind there are certain times of the day when other jobs on our schedule mean we can't conduct inspections. The best time if you would like to come and meet us is between 10:30am and 11:30am. There are STRICTLY no inspections between 11:30am and 1:00pm any day, and no inspections can be conducted any time on Public Holidays. No Exceptions, sorry.


We support animal charities and we promise to contribute to organisations who help defenceless animals. A percentage of our boarding rates will always go directly to the worthy work carried out by our favourite causes WSPA, the RSPCA and Monika's Doggie Rescue. Please click on the links to visit their sites, and read about their fantastic work.
