Your best friend deserves the best care

Passionate About Pet Care

Dog Care

Our facility provides individual indoor units adjoining a central corridor, each with its own bunk bed so your pooch can rest in complete and utter comfort.

Cat Care

Your kitty will have its own space for sleeping and relaxing in, which opens into a lounge area. This room is nice and warm and receives lovely sunshine for basking in.

All About Us

Passionate About Pet Care For Dogs And Cats


Our names are Dean and Kelly and we established Pawprints Dog Boarding Kennels and Cattery because of our tremendous love and respect of animals and we are strongly committed to their happiness, health and well being. 

We are proud to provide a safe, clean, caring environment for your pets.

We care for our guests on an individual basis, giving heaps of one on one attention, and catering to any special needs your pets may have. We also have excellent rates!

We don’t have a ‘standard routine’ for our guests as each pet is different and unique and should be treated as such. We tailor care plans specially suited to each pet so that he or she settles in and feels comfortable and safe.

If you are new to Pawprints we welcome you to come and see us, view our facility and have a chat.  We’d love to meet you and answer any questions you have, or simply pick up the phone and give us a call.

What our clients say
Kelly and Dean at Pawprints have cared for our dog Podge frequently over the last year and a half. We both have busy jobs and despite late notice at times Kelly and Dean have always welcomed Podge in for both short and longer stays.

He is always excited to head out to the kennels and enjoys socialising . There seems to be a nice mixture of regular boarders and sizes of dogs so there are other suitable dogs to keep him company and to play with.

Pawprints is always clean and tidy. Kelly and Dean are always responsive to any questions or requests we have. I have no concerns leaving Podge there, I know he is in safe hands. Rebecca

We have been loyal clients of Pawprints for over eight years. Dean and Kelly have always taken great care of our little dogs, including giving them any medication they may have needed. The Units are always clean and comfortable and there is a large safe outdoor area.

They provide a great service to all their special guests, be it day, overnight or extended stays.
We are really pleased to recommend Pawprints to take care of your special pets.
