Dogs

Dog Boarding | Sydney

SmallPaws Pet Hotel is the only pet hotel in Sydney that cares exclusively for small dogs.

Small dogs settle much easier in our non-threatening environment. We accept dog boarding guests from all over the city, including the North Shore, the Northern Beaches and the Eastern Suburbs. Unlike traditional dog boarding kennels, we provide a home away from home ambience for all of our little dogs.

We truly care for all of our guests, so naturally lots of exercise in one of our grassed areas or indoor play area is included for every guest.

At SmallPaws, we also believe that lots of human interaction helps dogs to settle in and feel at home. Our philosophy is that all pets in our care receive the same love and care that we would give to our own dogs. All of our guests are known individually by name.

Daily Routine

Morning wake up starts with a run outside to ‘attend to business’ and checkout what has been happening in the neighbourhood since the previous day. During this playtime, every pet gets a cuddle and check over to ensure everyone is happy and healthy.

Morning medications are then dispensed, and breakfast for those who need it.

Our guests are then separated into their daily play groups with compatible four-legged friends.

Our guests spend the day playing, sleeping in the sun, checking out new friends, and ‘supervising’ the daily

activities of their carers. Exercise is available all day in one of our large grass yards.

During the afternoon there are more cuddles, ‘health checks’, pampering plus activities complete (optional extra), bath time along with more sleeping and playtime.

Late afternoon it’s dinnertime and back to the rooms for rest and more cuddles.

Evening medication is then dispensed and a final good night tuck in.
