The Pets Hotel Country Club strives to provide the highest level of personalised service. We understand that each pet has a unique personality. To cater for the various needs of our clients and with the knowledge that pets require different types of interaction, we offer custom-designed activity options to meet the lifestyle needs of each pet and their owner.

activities1Playtimes and Yappy Hour

There is nothing more enjoyable than seeing a group of dogs romping around and playing. During our Playtimes and Yappy Hours dogs are matched according to size, age and activity level and taken to our purpose-built play yards. They are supervised by an experienced Pet Attendant and are allowed to play together in safety.

For Non-social dogs, we also cater for special one-on-one Playtimes which consists of interactions with Pet Attendants as well as time to explore our large yards.

For less energetic dogs or those who may benefit for more regular, shorter exercise periods we offer a 20 minute Mini Yap or Mani Playtime. Again, social dogs are matched according to size, age and activity level and taken to our purpose-built play yards. They are supervised by an experienced Pet Attendant and are allowed to play together in safety.

For Non-social dogs, the shorter exercise period is a one-on-one session with a Pet Attendants as well as time to explore our large yards.

activities5Super Yappy Session

This exciting new activity is for dogs with energy to burn. Super Yappy dogs will participate in extended Yappy Hours when they join in the Doggy Day Care Playtimes. Even high energy dogs will feel this work-out. Super Yappy Hour dogs will play up to 6 hours each day.

Rate $20 per Session

Please note For entire and non-social dogs: If your Dog is either an Entire male/female or non-social, they are unable to be played with other dogs, and therefore are unable to participate in “Super Yappy Sessions”. Understand that it is not a reflection on the dog themselves, as entire animals can be extremely social and well behaved. It is due to the dynamics of the pack of dog’s changing considerably and therefore it can become an unstable environment and can lead to fights. Please note that we have duty of care to all clients and will endeavour to do our best to assess all dogs to find them suitable playmates.

  • 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 ☺
