The Benefits of Doggy Daycare


Just like babies, our furry friends can be a source of so much joy and laughter in our lives. But like little kids, pet dogs in particular can be high maintenance at the best of times! With many of us juggling careers, parenting, housework and trying to maintain a social life amongst other things, sometimes we just need a short break.

Thankfully “doggy daycare” at The Pets Hotel Country Club gives you the option to do just that, by placing your furry friends in the hands of professional carers. Here’s some other benefits doggy daycare can offer you and your canine pal that you might not have considered:


1. Time apart to make your hearts grow fonder

The most obvious benefit of doggy daycare is freeing up your time to tend to other matters, whether that be running errands around town, indulging in Melbourne’s many magnificent shopping options or something as basic as going to work your 9-5 job. While saying goodbye to your furry friend in the morning can be tough, the short time you spend apart until later in the day will only make you both appreciate those evening cuddles together much more.


2. A chance to make new furry friends

Being incredibly social creatures, your dog will no doubt enjoy the opportunity to make plenty of new furry friends at our luxury doggy daycare facility just a short drive from both Geelong and the Avalon airport. With professional, caring staff on hand, we’ll introduce your VIP (very important pet) to the other dogs they’ll be spending their day with, whilst making sure everyone gets along well.


3. Plenty of exercise & daily fun

Dogs also need exercise, and lots of it on a daily basis, as any pet owner will tell you! Another big benefit of doggy daycare with us is the guarantee your canine pal will be spending much of their day moving about. Whether it’s chasing their friends around, rolling a ball along the floor or playing with toys, your dog will be releasing plenty of endorphins and energy throughout the day, so they’ll be extra ready for a night of deep sleep come home time.

  • Thank you so much to the staff at Elcho Park Pet Hotel! This was the first time leaving our Mac for more than a night and I was so worried as to how he'd go! Staff were very understanding with this worried mum ringing to check on her puppy! He's come home so relaxed and happy and just want some cuddle time! Highly recommend to anyone needing to leave their pets! Thank you all from the De Marchi's and Mac!

  • (5 stars) We have 2 high maintenance rescue dogs that have been institutionalised to stay in our local kennels. Unfortunately they were closed over a period recently and we needed to look elsewhere. Elcho Park was recommended to us by our local kennels and we travelled down from Ballan to do a trial. Jocelyn was exceptional and talked us through a long list of obviously well established and used procedures they have in place for difficult to handle dogs. We then subsequently met Ellen and Marnie at check in and check out who were equally knowledgeable, relaxed with handling the boys and encouraging of us keeping in touch to see how the boys progressed. We rang every day!!! Our littlest initially refused to eat which meant he wasn't getting some medication. The girls were extremely creative about getting him comfortable with lots of different snacks, food choices, hiding v crushing up etc. They also went to great lengths to spend time at the pens so he would be more trusting and relaxed. Perseverance paid off and for that we are so grateful. They also came home relaxed, happy and very vocal ... sadly no bark issues here!!! I will agree with others that the pens were a little on the smelly side and the facility does look quite tired and in need of a little love. That said the pens we had the boys in were spotlessly clean and there was lots of clean fresh water when we arrived unannounced to pick them up just after 8:30am Tuesday. All I can say is the team there really is amazing, the efforts they went to working with us was beyond impressive and their commitment to the animals in their care unquestionable. 5 stars from us ☺
