The Pets Hotel Country Club End of Year Wrap!

It seems that each year is going faster and faster! We are all trying to fit so much in and get so much done and while this time of year seems to the one of the busiest, it is also a wonderful opportunity to reflect.Pets Hotel Country Club Black and Gold low res

Our regular clients would have noticed a drastic change each time they visit us; with demolition of our old office and operations buildings being the main focus of the last few months. We can happily say this is now completed and we are ready to commence building. Although as always with these projects, it is now a waiting game for final building approvals as well as the builder’s availability to get going at this time of year.

Therefore, we will be in our ‘lovely’ site office a little longer. We appreciate everyone’s patience with these works. We cannot wait until they are completed and we can show off what is now many months of hard work.

Did You Know?!

2.3 billion people across the world don't have access to a toilet. That's roughly 40% of the global population and means that around 289,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases caused by poor water and sanitation. That's almost 800 children per day, or one child every two minutes….

That’s why The Pets Hotel Country Club chooses to use ‘Who Gives A Crap’ toilet paper! They make all of their products with environmentally friendly materials, and donate 50% of their profits to help build toilets for those in need.

We think looking after the world is very important, whether that be puppies and kittens or our fellow human beings! Check out Who Gives A Crap for yourself now!

  • 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 ☺
