Nathalia Pet Retreat

Dogs – Home Time

Bath & Dry – Complimentary

All of our boarders, on the day they go home, are bathed and blow dried. The only exception is if the animal becomes too stressed (baths, after all, can be a terrifying experience for some!) and we will err on the side of happiness (and safety) and not proceed.

The majority, however, look great and smell delicious when they jump in their owner’s car to go home!

To help us with the process, we ask that you provide an approximate pick-up time so that we can have your loved one ready for you – freshly scrubbed.

Basic Nail Clipping

Kennel staff can also provide a basic nail clipping service ($5), however, this is dependent on the dog’s overall reaction to nail clipping – some dogs are best left to the professionals (Vet). Again, the happiness and safety of your pet and our staff are taken into consideration.

Dogs – Professional Service

Whilst we wait for our beloved Helen (Lickety Clips) to become well enough to work again, we rely upon other well respected, but ultra busy groomers, Tammie (Fluffy Puppy’s Mobile Grooming) & Leanne (Soggy Paws), to conduct professional grooming on-site.

Tammie and Leanne can cater to tasks such as a full clip, basic cut, a general tidy up or breed specific grooming.

Grooming costs $55 per hour – and times can vary dependent on the desired cut, type of coat, temperament of dog and breed.

To avoid that scraggy look – it is best to book well ahead – so we can squeeze a time into Tammie or Leanne’s busy schedule.

Cats – Professional Service

If you would like your Cat groomed, please discuss your requirements with us.

Matted Hair

Some dog breeds have the propensity to develop very small areas of ‘dread-locked’ hair – matted and thick hair under ears and other areas. Sometimes this matted hair appears to be part of the animals coat. Leaving the matted hair is not healthy for the dog and makes grooming far more difficult – increasing grooming time (and costs) accordingly. 

We are happy to inspect your dog and discuss removal of this unhealthy growth.
