Fido's Boarding Lodge

Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site. Sharon, Kay and Garry are the new owner, and managers, and reside on site.

Fidos boarding lodge and Cattery is located just 10 minutes from Ipswich, but our clients come from Stradbroke Island to the Gold Coast. We service the Ipswich area and surrounds. 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.

Please note our Prices increased on the 1st March 2020

What People Are Saying

My little sausage had a four day stay here. Drop was easy, and my little lady happily went off with the staff. I loved that she could also have her own snuggly bed during her stay.

On pick up, I received a full report on how my little lady was and received the bedding back smelling excellent.

When my pup came into the reception area, she was so happy to see me but also not in a rush to leave which to me, clearly indicates a very happy dog. She smelt amazing, shiny coat and very well looked after.

Highly recommend Fidos and we will be back for sure!

If I could give 10 stars, I def would.

We put Bailey in the kennel for 8 nights he had never been to any before as he’s just a pup. I was a bit emotional as we had to leave him for the first time. Not sure why we worried he seemed to enjoy his time there. The staff were great and very accommodating with our needs. Will be back in the future!

Thanks again, we have a very tired puppy!

Left my Brando Boy there over the weekend recently. My first time ever leaving him in a kennels and he was so happy to go in he didn’t even say goodbye to me 😆 Just shows he could sense it was an awesome place! Picked him up, he was super happy and relaxed!

Will be using Fidos again for sure!

We collected a very happy “Mr” Albert this morning. He smelt as fresh as can be. Thankfully this kennel understands all breeds have their own traits. He came home happy as can be. Thoroughly recommend.

Peace of mind.

I left my 2 dogs here for a couple of weeks while I took a trip. It was the first time I had left them and I was a bit anxious. I arrived back to 2 happy dogs. They looked great and Kay was very accommodating, allowing me to collect them earlier than I had previously organised. Price was also reasonable.

Definitely recommend.

Just picked up Luna and Odie from their stay with Fido’s Lodge Boarding smelling amazing and freshly groomed. Can’t thank Fido’s Lodge Boarding enough for getting my puppies in last minute after a bad experience from another kennel. The place is very clean, friendly staff and I had two very happy puppies on pick up. Will be booking again.

Can’t Thank Fido’s Lodge Boarding Enough!

It was the first time my fur baby stayed at Fidos. She went happily and came home beautifully clean, soft and fluffy after her bath. Would definitely take her there again.

Came Home Beautifully Clean

Have left our dog Petrie there 2 times now, each time he has come home with some extra weight, even though its hard to get him to eat, a bath and realy happy. Great owners and staff, and just seems like a really great place. Highly recommend it to people who love their fur babies.

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.

Brilliant care and service

Fido’s was our choice out of the 4 we viewed, the new owners have done a fantastic job on the kennels and run yard upgrades. no problem viewing the place and Kay actually meet and showed us around. Puppies have just got home from 7 days away happy , healthy and clean. Kay and the team are fantastic . Thankyou so much for looking after our puppies Molly and Duncan
