dog boarding | DOGUE Country Retreat

Luxury dog boarding & specialised dog care with a difference.

DOGUE Country Retreat offers beautiful and intimate accommodation, dog grooming and day care for even the most discerning of canine guests.

Suitable for dogs of small to medium stature (15 kgs or under) and a sunny disposition, the vineyard and surrounding 100 acres in the picturesque Southern Highlands is an exclusive retreat and superb alternative to dog boarding kennels.

We invite your canine to stay for a day and be pampered in the Retreat’s Spa or enjoy a longer break at the Retreat with every holiday tailored for each guest.

Philosophy & Values


At DOGUE Country retreat, our philosophy is to provide a happy, healthy, stress-free experience for every guest and to provide them with a luxury boarding experience that feels just like home. We believe that socialisation is vital to the happiness of dogs, whether it is human or canine companionship and because of this, we provide intimate, nurturing care and ensure every guest becomes part of the Retreat family. Pet parents can rest assured that their canine family member is in a relaxing, fun, and safe environment.

We know your canine companion will leave the Retreat holiday barking for more!
