News from Elcho Park Pet Hotel!

It’s February and by now everyone is back at school! This month’s issue includes some handy tips to get both kids and pets back into the swing of things now that the holidays are over. It can be a huge adjustment, especially for a puppy or kitten who have come into a home buzzing with activity, to days spent occupying themselves at home without any human interaction.

What’s Happening at Elcho Park Pet Hotel? 

Well it’s the beginning of December already and our attention is drawn to the busiest time of the year. Christmas at Elcho Park is a very exciting time. We have so many pets come through our doors, many new faces and also the return of many old friends. Already, we have had a number of pets who will be staying with us right throughout the holiday season, checked in – a sure sign that Santa is just around the corner!

To ensure a smooth Check In and stay at Elcho Park during the holiday season, here are some reminders for the pets staying with us over the Christmas and New Years break:

  • 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 ☺
