Ballarat Kennels

Two puppies playingWhen boarding your dog or puppy, why settle for anything less than the very best?

At Ballarat Boarding Kennels and Cattery we look after your dog as if it is our own. We have been caring for the pets of Ballarat and surrounds for over 19 years, with kennels on the site for more than 60 years. Our boarders come to us from all over Victoria and as far away as Adelaide and NSW.

You can rest easy knowing that your dog will get the best of care and is safe with us. Whether you need day-care, emergency, short or long term care Ballarat Kennels is here to meet your needs.

Experienced staff are on-site 24 hours a day and provide friendly, personalised and professional care for each and every resident. We also offer an on-call veterinarian to address any special needs or

We offer a wide range of services including home-cooked quality food, catering for special dietary needs, administering medication and/or injections, under-floor heating in winter and a full range of grooming and hydrobath services.

Your dog will have their own private accommodation with warm, clean bedding. When two dogs are from the same family they can be housed, at your request, in shared accommodation.

We ensure that the kennels are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected every day; your dog will receive daily exercise, cuddles, love and lots of individual attention.

You are welcome to inspect our secure, well maintained and spacious facilities nestled in landscaped gardens in a rural setting, less than 15 mins from Ballarat central.

Note, that it is a condition of entry that your dog is currently fully vaccinated to the C5 level and that it was administered within the last 12 months prior to your dog’s stay. Upon admission will need to see proof of your pet’s vaccination status. If you are not sure about your pet’s vaccination status please check with your Vet. All dogs must be kept under leash control at time of admission.

While we specialise in providing the best care for your dog, cat, puppy or kitten we can accommodate your other pets. We have experience in looking after rabbits, hamsters, native and exotic birds and even chickens!

To avoid disappointment book early for holiday periods and call our office for current boarding and ancillary charges.

Customer Feedback


Thank you for the extra care and attention you gave to Sam this year.  Much appreciated by us.

You kindly cared for my much loved Fox Terrier 'Boyo' on several occasions whilst I was in hospital.  You also inquired about 'Boyo' being taken  in by '2nd chance' at Diamond Creek as it became clear that I would not be returning home.  I miss my little mate terribly but am so grateful that there are caring people like you and those at '2nd chance'.  Thank you

To the fantastic caring staff.  Thank you all for taking such good care of our beautiful boys over their long stay.  You all do such an amazing job. We will be going out of our way to recommend you as the place for dogs to holiday and be loved and cared for.  Nothing we asked for was too much trouble.  Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
