Dog Daycare Nathalia Boarding Kennels & Cattery

Lovey loving zoomies

Nathalia Boarding Kennels & Cattery offer two distinct daycare options for dogs.

  1. BYO-Dog
  2. Doggy Day Out, affectionately known as ‘DDO‘.

It doesn’t matter if your dog is a high-energy soul, a moocher, or just in need of some play buddies, ultimately our daycare is a fab way to provide the stimulation, sensory delights and social interactions that they love.

We use the same mix-n-match policy for all dogs on our premises, be they BYO-Dog, Boarders or Doggy Day Out. In other words, we match our guests with others of similar size, age and temperament. See more on our doggo info page.

Of course, our vigilant kennel staff closely monitor our guests throughout the day.


To participate in daycare dogs must

  • be 14+ weeks old and
  • if over 8/9 months of age must be de-sexed
  • have Proof of vaccination – which is up-to-date
  • treated for flea and worms

Rules in our booking system will block dogs who do not fit our criteria.


Doggy Day Care
Meet Kate. Kate is a regular Doggy Day Care pooch. She loves it.

What is it?

Customers can drop their dog/s to us in the morning (fresh as a daisy) and pick them up at the end of the day (pleasantly tired).

Regular customers can even drop off or collect their pets before and/or after office hours. This is very useful for those who work long hours.


Daycare packages help to keep your costs down.

  • ADULT DOGS: Prices (per day) range from $16 (with a package) to $25 (without a package).
  • PUPS: Under 8/9 months of age – prices range from $24 to $30 per day.
    • Note: All pups are closely monitored and have a ‘rest’ period during the day (in the office with the purple people).
    • Book a minimum of 5 daycare days for PUPS to receive a 20% discount.

Doggy Day Out

Doggy Day Out (DDO) is for pooches from Shepparton, Echuca/Kyabram, Numurkah/Wunghnu & Nathalia!

In a nutshell, we pick up dogs from a central location (see below) in the morning, bring them back to the kennels for a play, and then return them to their owners in the late afternoon. This service operates during the Victorian school terms (that is, NOT during school holidays).

Operation of our DDO service is weather dependent. If the weather is forecast to be too hot, or too wet, we will contact customers to cancel.
