29 Sep Luxurious Living for Your Pet
Going on holiday is one of life’s most enjoyable experiences. But it can also be the cause of real worry when you have a dog or a cat. You want to make sure you’re leaving them with someone you can trust with their care so you can truly relax while you’re away. This is why at Castelan Kennels and Cattery we aim to provide a home away from home for your beloved pet. We were thrilled our efforts were recognised by Bupa Pet Insurance in their article, 'Australian Pet Boarding Facilities You’ll Love'.
Established for over 30 years here in Brisbane, the staff at Castelan are all pet owners themselves, including our animal-loving owners. These experienced professionals know how difficult it can be to leave your pet with strangers. That is why the staff at Castelan take the time and trouble to get to know you and your pet before you leave your furry friend to stay with them – you can be assured your pet is in safe hands.
Owners Helen and Lance Young live on the premises to make sure standards are consistently high. They have previously worked in breeding, obedience training and the show circuit. This gives them a great understanding of pets and owners and what your expectations are! Long-term members of the Association of Pet Boarding and Grooming, Queensland, they make sure all staff adhere to the Association’s Code of Ethics. They also handpick staff who are devoted and empathetic to the needs of animals.
All pets are different. What makes Castelan stand out from other kennels and catteries is that before you book your pet in for a stay, the staff will ask you about your animal's dietary and medical requirements. They will also take the time to learn about the temperament of your pet. This will help them provide the appropriate level of care and attention to an animal who may have particular needs, whether they’re shy, playful or anxious.
All pets have their own spacious individual runs with raised sleeping areas. Cats’ and dogs’ accommodation areas are 70 metres apart, so there’s no chance they could come into contact with each other. In addition, large dogs are accommodated separately from small dogs to reduce the risk of trouble.
Cat runs are designed for one cat each but will accommodate two for cats who live together and prefer not to be separated. Large kennels are also available so that if you have more than one dog, they can keep each other company.
Food is prepared onsite using premium brands, in a special kitchen facility that is cleaned twice a day. With a five-star lifestyle like this, it’s no wonder our canine and feline friends love to return time and time again!
