Houndog Adventure Park - the Ultimate Pups Playground on 5.3 Acres

Life’s Better in the Great Outdoors – that’s our Motto! The Adventure Park is 20 Times larger than Brisbane’s Biggest Indoor Warehouse!   Our Mission is to Connect your Dog with other social Dogs in Nature.  Exposing your dog to Fresh Air is important – Dogs actually need time outdoors for their physical and mental well being. Being outdoors in the sun will give your dog an extra boost of valuable vitamins, which is vital for bone health and maintaining the correct calcium to phosphorus ratio in the body.  Being on Acreage, we can provide very Unique Activities – offered no where else in any doggy daycare in Brisbane.  See the Activities List below.  We’re also extremely Proud of the Natural Dog Beach Lagoon we’ve built here – it’s a First of it’s kind offered at any Doggy Daycare Facility anywhere in Australia! It even has its own waterfalls – It has to be seen to be Believed! The water is Natural – No Harsh Chemicals like regular Dog Pools. If your Dog is Adventurous he may like to try Dock Diving from our Purpose Built Diving Platform. One of the biggest benefits of having our Own Private Park means we don’t have to use Off-Leash Dog Parks, Bush Trails or Dog Beaches – this safeguards the Dogs & our Team from having to interact with the Public and their Dogs – so many of our Clients say that this gives them absolute Peace Of Mind.  Look around because you simply won’t find anything like the Houndog Adventure Park in Brisbane!

Being such a Huge Facility, we’ve divided the Property into 5 Distinct Areas, meaning –

*The Dogs are separated in to different sizes & playstyles.

*Each group has a manageable number of between 6-12 dogs, supervised by one or two of our Team.

* Little dogs & Nervous dogs play together which allows them to build Confidence & Trust

 

Being Dog Behaviourists, we understand the importance of  “Matching Personality’s” and keeping the groups small. This system assures that every dog gets individual attention and guarantees the safety & fun of each dog attending daycare. 

 

Houndog Adventure Park – Activities Include :

*Swimming & Dive Docking in our Our Unique Dog Beach Lagoon – it’s like a Mini Southbank for Dogs.
*Chasing our Team around the Property on the Mountain Bikes or on the Electric Scooter
*Expel more energy Going Crazy on our Olympic Size Sand Arena
*Enjoying the wonderful Dog Sport of Lure Coursing
*Nose Work – using their Unique sense of Smell participating in “Nose Work” which involves Treasure Hunts searching for Yummy Treats Hidden around the Property
*Mental Stimulation & Playtime on Our Agility Equipment
*Free Massages from our Team in the Mutts Massage Room.

The ADVENTURE PARK is totally Unique to Brisbane.   We’re a Family Operated Business of 13 years and we are “Masters” in Dog Body Language and Dog Behaviour. We also teach Dog Body Language at TAFE Qld.  We have Expert Staff  (including ourselves) Supervising at all times,  offering a Controlled & Safe Environment. Social Playgroups meet an Instinctual need for many dogs, therefore being outdoors is essential. The Houndog Adventure Park is where we Nurture through Nature.   

 

To ensure ‘Harmony’ among the Pack –  we don’t just accept Random Dogs that we don’t know.  All Dogs are Temperament Tested first so we can access their personality and playstyle. We do not accept anti-social dogs, chronic humpers or dogs that display extremely rough playstyles. We encourage our Clients to send their dog regularly.  Joining the Dog Daycare Pack is NOT a short-term view – the majority of our Doggy Daycare pack have been attending regularly for many years. Attending regularly improves a dog’s overall behaviour and social skills with other dogs.  This is why we don’t take Random Dogs we don’t know.  Our goal in joining new pack members is normally a Long-Term arrangement – something regular for your dog.  Join the Pack today – It’s Barking Good Fun!
