Dog Daycare Nathalia Boarding Kennels & Cattery

Lovey loving zoomies

Nathalia Boarding Kennels & Cattery offer two distinct daycare options Doggy Day Out (or ‘DDO‘) & BYO-Dog.

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.

Daycare services only operate during the Victorian school terms (that is, NOT during school holidays nor Public Holidays).

Payment is up-front for all daycare services.

To participate in daycare dogs must be:

  • Vaccinated
  • 14+ weeks old and
  • desexed if over 9 months of age (both male and female)
  • flea and wormed

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

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

We meet our eager DDOers at a central location in the morning where they excitedly climb aboard the DDO van or trailer. They are driven to the kennels for a day of fun and frolicking and then re-loaded again at the end of the day for the homeward-bound journey (same meeting place).

Places are limited so please book well in advance.

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

Boarding dogs are welcome to hop on board for transport to or from their holiday. We pick up in the mornings and drop off in the evenings (never the other way around). $20 one-way / family


Our drivers usually arrive 10 to 15 minutes earlier than the times shown below. Private phone numbers are provided with confirmation emails – just in case you are running late or need to cancel.

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

What is BYO Dog?

Yep, the name says it all, Bring Your Own. You can drop your dog/s to us in the morning (fresh as a daisy) and then pick them up at the end of the day (pleasantly tired).

Prices for BYO are reasonable, and pre-purchased packages can help to keep your costs down further. Adults range from $25 to $29 per day and puppies $34 per day (pups can receive a 10% discount if five days are booked at one time). Prices are explained during the booking process.

Note: All pups are closely monitored and have a ‘rest’ period during the day (in the office with the purple people).
