The Ultimate Experience:

We offer a fantastic alternative to Boarding Kennels:

We offer an Intimate & Unique “Staycation” at our Rural Property. We are NOT a Boarding Kennel – We’re a “Homestay”. Your Dog won’t be locked up in a Cage –   Your FurBaby will be treated like family.  How many other Dog Minders have an “ADVENTURE PARK” in their Backyard for your Dog to enjoy? With all the Unique Activities offered here, your Dog will have a better holiday then you and may not want to come home!  We’re definitely a “Premium Dog Minding Service” and you won’t find anything else like us in Brisbane.  Your Dog may even be lucky enough to join us on our Monthly Daytrips to Stradbroke Island & the Mt Tamborine Farm Trip.

You’ll see what a wonderful experience your Dog is having, via our daily photo & video updates. It’s the most fun your Dog can have (without you of course!) As a Bonus, upon collecting your Dog, we always offer our Clients “Free Advice” on Dog Behaviour & Body Language, Nutrition, Pack Behaviour, Dog Park Etiquette & Free Training Tips.


Being Exclusive, we only mind a maximum of 4 Doggy Friends:

Your dog will enjoy the company of a small group of social dogs, where they’ll play, wrestle, explore our 5 acres of bushland, run around in our Olympic Size Sand Arena and enjoy swimming in our “Purpose Built” Private Beach.

 Splash & Dash BEACH Party’s at Homestead: 

Our Private Beach is a First of it’s Kind offered at any Dog Minding Facility, anywhere in Australia! Its a Natural Water system meaning it has No Chemicals like Regular Pools. It’s a totally Unique Experience provided for our Doggy Guests which includes Dock Diving if your pooch is extra Adventurous!  Our Beach Party’s are a totally “Interactive Experience”.  You’ll see us in the water with the dogs because we Love it as much as they do and it enhances the experience for them. Swimming is such a great low impact exercise for Dogs and has many health benefits as well. We enjoy the Beach fun all year round.


 Doggy Daytrips to Stradbroke Island and Mt Tamborine:

Once a Month we offer “Specialty” Trips for our Guests to Stradbroke Island & Mt Tamborine. See below for more information on these excursions. 

The Homestead Experience

The Houndog Homestead is a totally Unique Experience:

What we offer is Polar Opposites to a Kennel – our Guests time with us is “Fun Filled & Action Packed” on our Rural Property. Being part of a small structured social K9 Pack has tremendous benefits for all dogs, not to mention the phycological benefits of not being in a cage all day . There’s an abundance of Dog Minders in Brisbane but disturbingly so many are doing it just as a “Side Hustle” or a quick cash grab to put themselves through University etc  If you want the BEST care for your Dog, why would you risk placing your Dog with an Amateur with no experience just because their cheap?  We’ve been Dog Minding for 13 years. We’re “Experts in Dog Behaviour” and even teach the subject of “Dog Body Language” at TAFE Qld – so we really know what we’re doing.  All play here is supervised and because we have 5 separate fenced Paddocks – it allows us to separate the small dogs form the Big Dogs. In addition to this, we also offer  “Specialty Trips to Stradbroke Island and Mt Tamborine once/month to our Guests. These daytrips are a separate service & at an Additional charge. We do not leave our Doggy Friends unsupervised while we’re off premises. See below for our Prices for the Houndog Homestead.

We do not offer REFUNDS for CANCELLATIONS in any Circumstances. We may however use our discretion on a case by case basis to offer a Credit but this will need to be discussed at great length to determine the circumstances. The reason we do not offer refunds for cancellations is because we only take limited numbers and are always turning away potential clients who would like to book our dog minding service but once we reach this number, we have to say no to other bookings and therefore are out of pocket when clients cancel. We appreciate your understanding on our strict Cancellation Policy.
