With the holiday season here already, make sure your beloved furry friends are accounted for. While you are on your holiday, your family pet can also have a holiday as well at our fabulous facility which is more than just a pet boarding facility. We know your pets are part of your family so we treat them as if they are our family too at our pet resort. If you decide to bring your dog for their holiday at our resort, they will have clean bedding, blankets and toys as well as two meals a day and always access to clean water. All rooms are also temperature controlled so whatever the weather, your pooch or cat will be comfortable. If you want to treat your dog to some extra special love and attention, our more deluxe rooms not only give them more space but they will gain longer play times and more access too outdoor play. Depending on the room type or how long they are staying for, then your dog may also be able to treated to a hydro spa bath so when you pick them up, they will not only have had the time of their lives, they will be clean and fresh as well! More than just a pet boarding facility, we make sure that your dog has just as much, if not more, fun on their holiday as you have on yours.

For Your Cat

Our pet boarding facility caters for more than just dogs: with our wonderfully equipped cattery, your kitty will be able to receive the luxury holiday they deserve while you are away. With our two options of either a Cat Condo or Cat Cabin, you will see that AAA Pet Resort takes pet boarding to a whole new level. Your feline friend will have constant access to dry food with an evening wet food meal along with constant access to clean water, fresh bedding, blankets, toys, play times, a maid service, private sleeping quarters and a climbing shelf. Depending on your cats personality and the type of accommodation you want to pick, your cats can have a range of options to play with like catnip toys, scratching posts, extra shelves and even a tiny house for them to escape too. We can also make sure that your cat has brushing every five days and if your cat enjoys looking out the window, we even have a window room as an option. We understand that pet boarding can be stressful for the owner almost as much as the pet and since cats can be a bit fussier than dogs, we keep that in mind therefore we encourage you to bring the food that they enjoy to make sure the change of the environment is not too stressful for them. Your cat will be in a highly stimulating environment that is temperature-controlled and be pampered the way all cats deserve so pet boarding at AAA Pet Resort is the perfect place for your cat while you go away.

Where are you off to next? We Can Help!

As soon as you plan your next trip away, make sure that you let as know as soon as possible so you can make sure that you get the best pet boarding experience for your cat or dog. We can also help your dog get familiar with our facility with our dog day-care and training services. Also, if your pet has anxiety travelling in the car, maybe every time they get in your car they think they are travelling to the vet, we also offer a pet taxi service. We come and collect your furry friend from your place and bring them home when you get back home from your holiday. That way it takes the stress and anxiety of you dropping off your pet and them watching you leave, as well as the car travel anxiety. We can also drop them off a little bit after you arrive home to give you time to unpack and unwind.

We know that travelling can be a stressful experience, especially if it is the first time you are leaving your family pet in a pet boarding facility therefore we want both you and your pet to have the easiest and most relaxing experience as possible.

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!
