Our repeat business says that people are happy with what we are doing. Please feel free to give us a call to inspect our facilities. We do ask that inspections are by appointment, and during our trading hours so not to disturb our boarders.

About Us
We Offer

Individualised Attention

As a small boarding kennel we can offer your pet individualised attention.

Our dog kennels have a large sleeping area, a day run that is insulated, so your pet stays cool in the summer and warm and dry in the winter. We also have big exercise yards for the dogs to have a run at least once a day, twice a day weather permitting.

We feed our guests the same as our own dogs - Royal Canin, and fresh Chicken mince or loaf, whichever they prefer.

The cattery is in the process of an update giving our feline guests more room, and is totally separate from the kennels and well ventilated, to ensure they are kept cool and warm.

We feed premium dry food Royal Canin, and the cats evening menu varies daily from fish or chicken to beef.

We don’t charge extra for administering medication, or feeding your own food.

Please feel free to give us a call and make an appointment to inspect our updated facilities. We would love to show you around.

After using different kennels over 20 years moving around in Defence, and now every 2nd week working in the Mines; Fidos is the Best Kennel I have ever used.

The service is Flawless, the best in price and when my Dog Jake is told he is going to Fidos, gets happy & excited.

Everytime he is picked up he looks so happy and healthy

It is truly a CREDIT to Kay and the whole Fidos Team.

Thank you Fido’s for you’re brilliant care and service. Love how we were greeted and esp that we rocked up with only minutes to spare before closing. So accommodating and helpful. My fav part was travelling home with two very nice clean dogs.

Highly recommend Fido’s.

Extremely happy with the service provided to our two dogs over Christmas. It was great to be able to house the two together and they had a great time. The kennels are very large and updated they get proper exercise and you can tell the staff love animals large and small. We would not hesitate to take our dogs here again. Thank you very much!

Extremely Happy

So happy with Kay and the team at Fidos for looking after my fur baby. I was so concerned leaving him as he normally stays with my parents, but after talking with Kay and her answering my many phone calls I could not have been happier- he is healthy and happy. Would highly recommend to anyone, especially someone who’s dog and owner has separation anxiety

Amazing facility and wonderful owners. I was extremely anxious about putting my dogs into the Kennels as it was their first time and they are somewhat wary of people and other dogs. I was made to feel at complete ease when I inspected the facility and felt comfortable about leaving my puppers at Fidos. I have since picked them up after their 4 day stay and my dogs didn’t want to leave! I strongly recommend Fidos. Thank you for looking after Maggie and Diego they will be back again.

Amazing facility

I have just picked up my two dogs this afternoon after a short two night stay. This was both my dogs first experience at a dog kennel and first experience staying somewhere unknown. My dogs look and smell amazing. I would highly recommend Fidos Lodge to anyone who is unsure about leaving your dog at a kennel The staff are extremely lovely and accomodating with your dogs special needs which is definately peace of mind. I cannot thank them enough. My dogs will definately be back.

No anxiety worrying if our pet are okay.

Great work Fido’s Lodge.

We’ll be back Thank You

Great work We’ll be back

I couldn’t be happier with the amazing care Kay and the team at Fidos have taken of my fur kids!!! Special dietary requirements, vet trips, kindness and attention. – they have been fantastic. They have paid such close attention they even noticed a tiny abnormality on my girls ear, caused by my boy playing too rough. Because they were so attentive we got this sorted early and quickly. Strongly recommend this kennel for your pups

Professional, caring and attentive is what you want for your pets, when leaving them in a kennel. Fidos Lodge offers all that and more…..
