Dear Peter and Wendy,
I just wanted to write and thank you both for the fantastic care that you did with my little girl Millie recently when I boarded her with you. As you are aware I was very worried, never having left her before, and given the fact that she needs medication a couple of times a day, I was so relieved when I found that ABBEYARDS are a Boarding Kennel that really does care and cater for all dog needs. Including giving medication at whatever time is required. So I extend the biggest Thank You to you both. I would also like to say that your boarding facilities are a credit to you, From the warm and friendly welcome on arrival, to the peace of mind on departure knowing that my little girl had been in a happy and safe environment and had infact had a fantastic holiday herself. She told me how much you had pampered her!!!!!! lol Should I have the need to board my little girl again, it will be with you, and I will be recommending ABBEYARDS to any of my friends who are looking for somewhere to board their dogs.

Dear Wendy, Peter & Chris,
Thank you so much for looking after our beautiful little willow. It was so nice to go away & be able to totally relax knowing she was in such good hands.

Our beagle puppy Jersey recently stayed at Abbeyards and we were SO impressed. Wendy and the team are absolutely delightful and you can tell immediately they are genuinely super passionate about animals. We were a bit nervous about the whole kennel thing, but called several vets who recommended Abbeyards (as they have never seen dogs/cats with any health complaints after staying there), so made the choice to go with them. They took excellent care of her and we would have no hesitation leaving her there again. They sincerely love animals and gave our girl lots of cuddles – and a nice bath before she came home. Definitely highly recommend them 🙂

We never thought that we would leave our new little puppy with anyone but Abbeyards made it easy. We could tell Juke our little beagle was well looked after and he smelt better than what we left him. Great service and would happily recommend their services to friends and family… well done!

Chocolate’ had her first sleep over last night & loved it. As she is a young abandoned dog that we bought from AWL only a few months and had been through a lot of trauma – we were worried about sending her to a kennel after she had just recovered from her ordeals. However after seeing the facilities and speaking with the owners – we left Chockie there quite confident that she would be okay. We picked her up this morning and I don’t think she wanted to leave. She was all shinny and clean and smelled lovely, her tail was wagging, ears were up and she is still very happy. We’ve decided to call Abbeyards her DOGGIE DAY SPA. She’ll be back soon for a visit. Thanks to Chris, Wendy and everyone. Fantastic place with fantastic service.

We were so happy with the way our little man (Jack Russell) was treated at Abbeyards. He is treated as one of the family at home and was so happy when we went to pick him up m not sure if he actually wanted to leave..ha ha. We would have no hesitations in taking him back there again. We find the big test is the next day if he is out of routine at home but he has slipped back to his normal routine and we have had no issues like early morning wake ups or wanting meals when he shouldn’t be wanting them. So thank you very much for looking after our little man. We will be back again!!

I am a very frequent traveller and send my two dogs off to Abbeyards when I am away. I know they get great attention, great meals and love being there. I would and do recommend them to all other pet lovers.

As parents of ‘fur kids’ and regular travellers, it was important to us to find like minded people to care for our ‘family’ when we needed to be away. A number of years ago, through a vet recommendation, we contacted Wendy & Peter of Abbeyards (at their original location). From the moment we started talking to them, we knew they were the right people to take care of our ‘kids’ – and we were not disappointed, they both came back to us happy and healthy every time. Abbeyards now has a brand new home – and it really is a well designed facility. With lots of room to move, piped music and sound-proofing (which is especially good for our anxious staffy who hates storms!), Wendy, Peter & Chris have thought about everything to make your ‘fur kids’ stay relaxed and enjoyable. The location may be new, the kennels and cattery may be new, but the people remain the same – still with a passion for animals and animal welfare. We cannot recommend Abbeyards highly enough. If you are looking for a kennel and/or cattery that treats your ‘fur kids’ like their own and makes your time away from them less stressful, then you must take them to meet Wendy, Peter & Chris – you will not be disappointed.

We’ve lived in various places in 3 different states now & Abbeyards is truly the best in dog accommodation & care. I was concerned leaving our Champi as it was her first time without her beloved late Max but I was impressed by the setup & the attitudes of Wendy & Peter so felt happy to leave her in their hands. On our return, it was obvious Champi was happy & had been well cared for. As was the affection Wendy had for Champi when farewelling her. We waited 4 years for Abbeyards to open & it was well worth the wait. I’m a bit of an expert when it comes to kennels (i.e. a real fusspot) & believe me you won’t find a better option on the coast! Thanks guys…we’ll be back soon.

my lab – Koda – stayed for a week while I was at a conference down south. Only thing is I think Koda wanted to stay instead of come home with me! Great kennels. Clean and inviting. I’ll use them again in a heart beat. Good price as well especially with the hydro baths, etc.

Our 2 dogs stay there everytime we go away. You can tell the owners genuinely love animals and are so happy to see our pups when we bring them in and our dogs love seeing them too. When we go to pick them up I wonder if they actually want to come home. The kennels are clean and well looked after and the prices are quite reasonable. Highly recommended!

What a fantastic facility! Straight away you realise how much the owners of this place love animals and they are passionate about providing first class treatment to their furry guests. Our little princess has been to Abbyards several times now and I’m sure she’ll be paying another visit soon.
