Constant supervision is an attribute of our pet boarding on the Gold Coast with AAA Pet Resort so if anything happens, your beloved family member will be well looked after.

Better than Pet Sitters

Why choose pet boarding on the Gold Coast over a home pet sitter? While much research suggests that pets are happier in their home environment and that change is a big deal for both dogs and cats, they are able to cope with the exceptional quality service of pet boarding Gold Coast-based. The reason is that we offer them a home away from home with facilities and services on offer that are conducive for both dogs and cats. They are more resilient than we might at first think and AAA Pet Resort ensures that they receive love, affection, toys, bedding and delicious meals. When arranging for pet boarding on the Gold Coast, it is wise to consider that they will be well looked after and you don’t have to have a stranger in your home.

With pet sitters, you need to have a stranger staying in your home unless of course you ask a family member, friend or neighbour to feed your beloved pet. That depends on their availability and willingness to be a pet sitter while with AAA Pet Resort you can rest assured that your pet will enjoy the vacation as much as you will. You can bring some of your pet’s favourite toys to the facility so that they can feel at home. Additionally, your pet can have doggie or feline friends to play with whereas if they are at home with a pet sitter, they are alone unless you have more than one pet. If your dog or cat suffers from separation anxiety, try bringing familiar bedding and toys as well as placating them with a Thundershirt. A Thundershirt is a jacket placed over the dog that applies gentle pressure on them making them more relaxed.

For Cats

Our pet boarding Gold Coast facility is renowned for quality and an expert team. We don’t just cater for dogs and doggie day care but we look after your feline friend as well. Spoiled for choice between a Cat Condo and a Cat Cabin, you will see that AAA Pet Resort takes pet boarding on the Gold Coast to a whole new level. Your cat will have access to dry food, a wet food meal in the evening and access to clean refreshing water. Additionally, they will be spoiled with fresh bedding, blankets, toys, a maid service, play times and a climbing shelf as well as private sleeping quarters. We even have a window room as an option for your cat to enjoy the view.

Your beloved feline friend will be spoiled with attention, affection and love and we understand that pet boarding can be stressful on the owners as they are leaving their beloved family member somewhere. That’s why AAA Pet Resort goes above and beyond to look after your cat as best we can and ensure his or her safety and comfort.

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!
