Hedgegrove boarding facilities are second to none. All of our kennels are maintained to the highest standard, are cleaned daily, and climate controlled comfort all year round. To help the dogs relax, music is played throughout the entire complex.
All of our dogs enjoy fully insulated kennels with covered outdoor areas. Your dog will have shelter all year round, whether from the harsh sun or the cold rain. All kennels also have elevated, flea free hammock beds to keep them comfortable during the night.
We have separate facilities for large and small dogs, so you can rest assured your loved one will be comfortable and able to move around in their space. Our larger dogs have larger kennels so they have the space that they need.
If you have several dogs and would like them to be housed together we will do our best to accommodate all requests, however some restrictions will be applied.
We choose to feed our dogs the premium food of Black Hawk & Royal Canin. If your dog is on a different diet we strongly suggest supplying their own food to avoid upset stomachs. Please portion their meals and clearly label them and supply instructions.
Hedgegrove is proud to have behaviour specialists working onsite to help ensure your dog has a safe and comfortable stay with us.
All of our dogs enjoy twice-daily exercise sessions in our outdoor play area so they have the chance to explore and enjoy the grounds.
Between 1–2pm you can treat your dog with a “Yappy Hour” consisting of a Kong filled with treats (Frozen chicken mince, beef/chicken broth, peanut butter paste, liver treats, beef treats, kong cookies etc.) For those dogs who don’t like kongs we do give them other treats so they don’t miss out.
All dogs are required to be current with the below vaccinations. We ask to sight the Vaccination Certificate to ensure your dog has been vaccinated during the last 12 months before boarding. If it is their first vaccination, it must have been done at least 2 weeks before they board with us for full cover. This helps ensure the health and well-being of your pets and all pets under our care. Dog who are regularly vaccinated on time will be permitted board after a 7 day waitin period between vaccinating and boarding.
Dogs require vaccine protection against 5 diseases: (Annual and triennial vaccinations are accepted)
To avoid dissapointment vaccination certificates must be brought upon each visit.
We are happy to administer medication/supplements to your pet during their stay, however a surcharge may occur. Please discuss this when making your booking.
Prescribed medications will be adhered to, unless otherwise advised by the administering Veterinarian. Please ensure that your medication is properly labelled and comes in it original packaging so that we can adhere to the Veterinary instructions and/or in case any follow up is required by our staff.

Guest recieveng Insulin must provide a fresh needle for each day of their stay and special precuations and policies are followed. We ask all guest on insulin only arrive for boarding during our morning opening hours so they have the day to settle in.
We ask that you drop your dog off by 10.30am to ensure they have suitable time to settle before the night. This will help enhance your dog’s stay as they will be more familiar with the environment. Please do not make a fuss over your dog when you leave as this may cause stress and upset your dog.
