We offer comfortable, spacious and clean barn accommodation for your dog in a beautiful country setting.
Exercise and playtime
Every morning and afternoon your dog will have playtime in one of our large, grassed exercise areas, where the dogs can watch and hear the neighboring cows and sheep.
We carefully match dogs in size, age and temperament so your dog can enjoy playtime with a companion. Or if your dog prefers solo time or has aggression issues, we can arrange a separate exercise yard.
We try to minimise changes to your dog’s normal feeding regime by providing similar food to what your dog eats at home. Please advise us if your dog has any allergies or reactions to certain foods.
We provide a balanced diet of dry food (free of artificial colours and flavours) with a nutritious cooked beef or chicken roll, or raw meats (chicken, beef and/or kangaroo).
If your dog has a very specific dietary need, we can cater for that at no extra cost. Please supply us with instructions when you make your booking.
All boarders staying with us for more than four days receive a free hydrobath. If the weather is too cold, we will substitute the hydrobath for a hot towel bath and brush.
If your dog is staying less than four days, we can arrange a hydrobath on request. We aim to make sure all dogs go home clean and smelling nice.
In the unlikely event that your dog needs emergency treatment, we will take your dog to the nearest vet without delay. We have access to vets on call 24 hours a day.
Please note that you will need to pay transport and veterinary costs if your dog is taken to the vet.
In the interest of your dog’s health and that of the other boarders, we require all vaccinations to be up-to-date. You will need to show us your dog’s current C5 vaccination certificate before the booking will be accepted.

If travelling from Hobart, once you are in Colebrook you will see a shop on your left. Just after the shop, take the road to Tunnack on your right (Rhyndaston Road – C313). Veer left in the fork of the road towards Rhyndaston (do not continue to Tunnack), and follow the road for approximately 2km.
Then turn left onto Coal Mine Bend Road, which is a dirt road. After around 700m you will cross a cattle grid and then you will see a sign for Colebrook Country Boarding Kennels on the left. Follow the road for a short distance to our property.
We look forward to welcoming you at our kennels!
