Any dog owner out there will understand that a pet isn’t just a pet. They are an extension of ourselves and truly are a part of the family. Because of this, many people will become uneasy when it comes time to find a dog kennel for their furry friend. There are so many different benefits to traveling, but for many, it just isn’t worth leaving their pet behind.

They worry that they won’t be taken care of properly and that something might happen to them while they are away. Furthermore, they worry that their loved one will fret without their owner and could become anxious once their routine is broken. Here at AAA Pet Resort, we completely understand these concerns and so do everything in our power to offer the best dog kennels on the Gold Coast that will give pet owners peace of mind. One of the many ways that we are able to achieve this is with our private resort rooms. For those who are on a budget or who would like their furry friend to have some company, they are able to hire our twin shared accommodation. For those who would like privacy for their dog and who want the best of the best, they are able to go for our private option. Whatever option is chosen; we are confident that we offer some of the best dog kennels on the Gold Coast.


What is included in the best dog kennels on the Gold Coast?

Our resort rooms are 1.5m x 2.4m in size and are located indoors. These rooms are filled with colours and warmth making it the perfect home away from home. Two meals are also included along with comfortable bedding, blankets, ongoing clean and fresh water, two play times per day, a hydro spa bath, a daily maid as well as much more. Believe it or not, our amazing resort rooms are just the beginning. For those who want to ensure that their pet gets the best treatment possible, they are able to upgrade to our VIP villa. This includes all of the same features at the resort rooms, however, also includes longer play times, air-conditioning, glass doors instead of wire ones, and the rooms are larger.

Once again, our villas can be shared or hired privately. Now while our resort rooms and villa options provide excellent offerings, there are some owners out there who want to make sure that their loved one feels like they are truly at home. The great news is that we can cater to this at-home experience as well. Our presidential suite is a 3m x 3m indoor room and allows its occupant to feel like they are in their own lounge room.

In addition to the previously mentioned features, the presidential suite also includes 2 x 30 minutes of playtime each day, French glass doors, a leather lounge suite, and a television. All of these interactive and personal features mean that we here at AAA pet resort have some of the best dog kennels on the Gold Coast.

What is available for those who are looking for something extra special

For owners out there who not only want to make sure that their pet feels at home while they are away but that they are also spoiled, we have a couple of perfect options for them. The first is our Queen’s villa which is a 3m x 3m indoor room with 24-hour access to a safe and secure outdoor yard. There are three, thirty-minute sessions of playtime each day as well as all of the aforementioned features. For those who want to splash out on the best that there is, are able to hire our King’s villa. This is a 4m x 3m indoor room that also has access to an outdoor yard. This opulent room also includes three sessions of 40-minute play each day and is truly the closest resemblance to a small home. Not only will your dog feel pampered in this room but they will also feel safe and secure. So those who are feeling nervous about leaving their loved ones behind when having to travel for whatever reason can have peace of mind knowing that their furry friend is safe in one of the best dog kennels on the Gold Coast. Gone of the days when kennels were baron and cold.

Here at AAA Pet Resort, we provide an experience and service that is warm, inviting, and unlike any other.

Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between Twin Share and Private during pet boarding?

Each of our five room options can be booked as either a Twin Share or a Private, so it’s still the same room, the option just depends on if your dog would like to have the room to them self or if they’d prefer to share that room with a friend. With dogs who do not live together at home, we will only board two dogs together at any one time, except under special circumstances, in which case you would be notified about the situation prior to boarding.

How do you match the dogs for Twin Share?

If you have a dog who thoroughly enjoys the company of another dog, the Twin Share option may be suitable. We match dogs in the Twin Share option according to size and temperament, so if you have a small, calm dog, your dog would be matched with another dog who is small, who would like to integrate but not be too over the top during play. If you have a large, playful dog, your dog would be matched to someone who wouldn’t mind playing the day away with your dog. There are endless combinations of pet traits.

Is there always a dog match available at your pet resort?

There are instances where you may book your dog into a Twin Share room, but we may not have a dog boarding with us during that time who is suitable to share the room with your dog (Eg. Dogs got alone but one was much more playful than the other). If this occurs, we will be in touch with you to let you know that we weren’t able to find a match. When dogs are matched up, sometimes the dates that their booking goes for does not align. Your dog may be here for seven days, and their initial match may only be here for the first three days. The introduction process begins again once their first match has left.

What is the introduction process for the dog boarding?

We are very particular about which dogs share with one another, and our introduction process can take up to 3 or 4 hours. It’s most certainly not something we take lightly as we must ensure that both guests will feel comfortable being with one another during their stay. If there are any signs of anti-social behaviour from either dog, the introduction progress is ceased immediately.

If your dog has never boarded with us before, it’s highly recommended to book them a Private room so that you know the room is readily available for them to have them self should they require it. It’s very easy for us to change to a Twin Share, but due to availability, it’s not always easy for us to do it the other way around. Please get in touch with us if you’re unsure about which option is best for your dog.

Why are vaccinations important in Boarding Kennels or Pet Resorts on the Gold Coast?

If you’re looking for cat or dog boarding on the Gold Coast, your pet will be required to have current vaccination records. A good dog hotel on the Gold Coast will always protect all its canine and feline guests by making sure they are all up-to-date on their shots and healthy. Puppies and kittens require three initial vaccinations when they’re very young and then annual booster vaccinations and check-ups for life. Our requirements are C5 in dogs, and F3 in cats, and these vaccinations need to be conducted within the last 12 months, but not within 10 days of the arrival date to our resort. Be sure to ask your vet if you have any questions about your pet’s full protection and contact our friendly team to find out more about the vaccination requirements.

I want to say a big 'thank you' to that looked after my princess, Heidi. Normally, a dog would lose weight while in boarding, but if you send your dog here, he will come back with holiday kilos, as well as be taken care of just as they are at home. Will be bringing Heidi back next time!


Just picked up Roxy and Havoc after two weeks overseas. They had a wonderful time, and the feedback I received on my dogs was fabulous. The staff spent a lot of time with them, so there will be a few more holidays for me, knowing my babies are in excellent hands.


We have taken Mischy there several times now and we can leave her knowing that she will be looked after by some wonderful staff. Sometimes we wonder if she wants to come home or stay with the girls. We would recommend AAA Pet Resort to anyone and everyone.


Leaving your pet can be very nerve racking, but AAA Pet Resort were very professional and made it easy to do. They were contactable while we were away and took photos of our gorgeous girl for us to see. When we saw her face we were confident she was being cared for in the right hands.


Ace and Rose has had three stay's now the latest being the longest. They looked very healthy and happy when we collected them. Thank you AAA Pet Resort for taking fantastic care of our two fur babies!
