AAA Pet Resort Reviews:

Melissa Copeman says ‘as always, Rosie had a great stay at AAA pet resort. We wouldn’t go anywhere else, we love your facility and the way you take so much care of our dog. We can go away and be 100% confident that our dog is being looked after very well. Thank you!’

Another happy client is Zaydahlee who reviewed us with ‘there is a uniqueness to this amazing Family Business. Professional with service that always leaves me truly comforted and smiling. Gets my thumbs up for Pet comfort & holiday home away from home!’

We are an Australian-owned and operated family business who cares for everyone’s pets and treats them with love and affection.

Another testament to our quality service with a smile and to easing the nerve-racked parents of beloved pets is from Renea who says ‘leaving your pet with anyone can be very nerve-racking, but for our first experience of doing so 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, and when we saw her face we were confident she was being cared for in the right hands. They even nicknamed her Roxie Bear, which I loved! We would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you AAA pet resort.’

We take care of dogs and cats and Lesley Grove attests to this with ‘this is the second time Lilly cat has holidayed here. She loves all the attention she receives. The staff are wonderful here and care deeply about animals. Highly recommend’.

We are willing to go above and beyond to assist our clientele with their pets as Lorraine Martin knows with her review of ‘3 days ago Lara spent a weeks holiday at AAA Pet Resort. She has been there many times in her nearly 16 years life. The staff are wonderful and take the very best care of Lara. Unfortunately, Lara isn’t maintenance-free she is blind as well as needing drops in both her eyes. I wouldn’t have been surprised if I’d been told it’s just not practical to look after handicapped dogs and they couldn’t mind Lara but thankfully year after year she is welcomed back to AAA. This time I picked Lara up she cried and made little throaty noises all the way home. I took it as meaning she would rather stay with her friends at AAA Pet Resort. I am so thankful to have found AAA Pet Resort’.

For pet boarding on the Gold Coast, AAA Pet Resort is renowned for quality service and testimonials attest to this.

How Dogs Show Love

It might take a while or no time at all to get used to the way your dog shows love. When you first get a dog whether it be from a pet store, a shelter or rescue dog, your dog will have its own unique ways of showing you love. Sometimes dogs follow you from room to room, everywhere you go as they want to be near you and feel your presence. Often dogs lean on you or nudge you with their nose or body, this is a sign of love and wanting to connect with you. You can give them all the love and affection they deserve as they lean into you or give you a bop as they go by. But what is the most common sign of love from a dog? The wag. The tail wagging is an obvious sign of love particularly if they are wagging their tail in a circle. It is a sign that your dog is in a happy mood and content albeit excited to see you. Additionally, dog kisses are a sign of a dog’s love. Dogs lick their puppies to keep them clean and warm and they shower love to their owners by licking them. As your local pet boarding on the Gold Coast facility, we know how dogs show their love for their owners and we can share this with you because we are so used to a dog’s affection as we show them love. Many dogs will collect toys and bring them to you as this is a sign of love and affection. They want validation that they have done well and they often want to play. Whether it is tug of war or throwing the toy to play catch, a dog shows love in many ways by bringing toys to their owner. We at AAA Pet Resort as your local pet boarding on the Gold Coast facility know what it’s like to have your heart warmed by a dog’s love.

Off To Perth? Here’s What To Do and See

So you’re off to Perth, Western Australia for a vacation or for business purposes? Here’s what to see and do in Perth. If you have time around your business schedule or you’re in Perth for a vacation, it is a must to visit Rottnest Island, home of the Quokka. The Quokka is a small marsupial that is known for living on Rottnest Island and is famous for both Australian and international tourists. Departures to Rottnest Island via the Rottnest Ferry operate daily and for those that want to soak up the spring sun and the soon-to-be summer sun, you can stay at one of the island’s accommodation venues. Another favourite of travellers is the Bell Tower which is an eighty-two-point-five metre copper and glass tower overlooking the Swan River with a set of eighteen bells, six of which were a donation of metals mined in Western Australia.

When you engage with pet boarding on the Gold Coast with AAA Pet Resort, we can offer you quality service while you enjoy the sights of Perth on your vacation or business trip.

Another famous tourist attraction is the Swan Valley which is home to famous wineries, breweries and other gourmet delights like cheese and chocolate. Travel through by car or by tour as this region is only twenty-five minutes from Perth city. There are also distilleries and cider to enjoy as well as wine and beer in this famous region of Perth.

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!
