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.

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

We don’t have a professional groomer on staff so we rely on two mobile groomers, Tammie (Fluffy Puppy’s Mobile Grooming) & Leanne (Soggy Paws), to conduct professional grooming on-site. We have to book well in advance to lock in an appointment with our two groomers (at least 5 or 6 weeks)

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.

For our customers who knew our long-time resident groomer Helen McKeown of Lickety Clips – Helen passed away in Feb 2019.  We miss her dearly.

Cats – Professional Service

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