Paws a While Dog Boarding:
At Paws a While Boarding Kennels, our guests enjoy their own generous indoor kennel space, each with its own adjoining secure outdoor run! Guests have access to their outdoor run 24 hours a day. We also have a limited number of airconditioned kennels available (cooling only) for pampered pups or those who struggle on hot days.
Both standard and deluxe boarding include:
- Rural Setting.
Paws a While Boarding Kennels is set on 9 hectares (23 acres), yet we're only thirty minutes from the Newcastle CBD or the heart of Maitland, five minutes from Beresfield via the New England Highway near Tarro.
- Separate Outdoor Runs.
As well as a generous undercover run area, each kennel has it's own 9 metre long grass-surface run. This is the key to removing stress from the boarding experience for dogs, who need access to an outside area at all times so they don't feel cooped up, and they don't have to hold on for the toilet for hours on end. Our kennels are therefore clean, dry, and odour free inside. (Please note, we now have artificial grass in our dog runs)
- Quality Food.
We use only high quality, high nutrition dry food. There's also no problem if you want to provide food from home, though. This way your dog gets to eat what he or she usually likes. Just be sure to provide safe, dry storage, and we'll feed your pet as instructed by you. Unlike at some kennels, at Paws a While there's no extra charge. Please see our terms and conditions for full details.
- Medications Administered.
If your dog needs pills, a cream or ointment, ear drops, eye drops or even insulin injections, our experienced team administers and records all doses as directed. A small surcharge applies.
- Chew Toys.
We have a range of durable chew toys to amuse and challenge your dog. Of course again, you can bring toys from home.
No kidding. We love dogs. Granted, not all dogs like all people, but if your dog likes lots of cuddles, pats, and general affection, don't worry we've got it covered and then some.
