All dogs staying with us receive two nutritious daily meals, bedding and blankets with toys for playtime.

For those pets staying five days or more, extra services are available. Dogs will be provided with a hydro spa bath service and cats will be able to enjoy a complimentary brushing. For your dog, there are also packages that include constant supervision. No matter what though, your pets will be in the best possible care.

Dog Daycare

In addition to a premium pet motel on the Gold Coast, AAA Pet Resort also offers doggie day care. If leaving your dog at home during the day by themselves is not an option, bring them to us for the day. Compared to leaving them with a family member or pet sitter, there are huge advantages to leaving them in our care: constant supervision, constant stimulation and constant care. They will be able to play outside for most of the day and will also be brought inside under the air-conditioning so they remain cool and can rest. Outside they will have plenty of water and shade, as well as fully equipped play equipment. For the social dogs, we can match them with a friend of a similar size and temperament so they can spend the day playing together. Rest assured though, the dogs wellbeing is our utmost priority so as much as we know understand the benefits of socialisation; if we sense or know of any issues, we will handle them accordingly. Instead of leaving your best friend at home alone all day, bring them to us. As long as your dog has had their full C5 vaccination in the last twelve months (and more than five days prior to visiting us), our pet motel on the Gold Coast can ensure that while you are working the day away, your dog is good hands and can come home with you at the end of the day being relaxed and looked after.

Dog Training to the Rescue

Ensuring your dog is well-trained is essential for any dog owner but life can get in the way and the hours of dedication needed to train your beloved pet can pass before you know it. That is why AAA Pet Resort goes above and beyond expectations as a pet motel on the Gold Coast, we also offer incredible services for your pets including dog training. If your dog is staying with us while you are away or you are wanting to get them trained by a professional, then we can work out a dog training program through professional trainers, Craig A. Murray Dog Training. Especially with young dogs, the more hours you put in will ensure they learn the vital skills to keep them happy, disciplined and bring out the full potential out of your best friend. Skills like focus, heel, sit and stay, down and stay, come, crate training, mat training and more are taught by our professional team. These lessons can either be in private or group training, a twelve-day training program or an individual program to suit yours and your dog’s best needs. When considering a pet motel on the Gold Coast, remember AAA Pet Resort because not only will your dogs be staying with us, we can give them the best experience possible and have them return to you in the best condition possible.

All our guests have a great time

Born into the pet care industry, resort owner Michael Avery has owned various pet resorts across the Gold Coast. However, he considers AAA Pet Resort his crowning achievement. Michael’s vision to create a home away from home for Gold Coast pets has been realised, as many happy customers can attest. Our philosophy is simple, yet effective: to ensure all of our guests have a great time, in a loving, protective environment.

All AAA animal carers uphold Michael’s high standards of care and comfort. This is reflected in their compassionate, observant nature when caring for your best friend

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!
