Our fees

Top Notch Kennels Prices

Fees are charged on a per day basis as we are unable to book another dog into your dog’s unit on the day they arrive or leave. Therefore the day of arrival and departure are charged as a full day.

All prices are per calendar day

An overnight stay is therefore counted as two days.

  Low Season Pricing High Season Pricing
All school holidays, public holiday weekends
(3 day minimum charge)
Small Dog $44 $55
Medium/Large Dog $48 $60
2 Small Dog Families $70 $87.50
2 Medium/Large Dog Families $78 $97.50
3 Dog Families $98 $122.50

For Easter and Christmas/January bookings, a non-refundable bond will be required to confirm the booking. If any date changes are made the bond will be forfeited. If the dates remain as booked the bond will come off the total cost of the stay.
Prices are subject to change at any time without prior notice.


Additional Fees

Extra care fee: $20 per day.  For dogs needing individual walking, this will be discussed with you.  If you own two or more dogs that can be socialised together the charge remains $20. We endeavour to find a good group mix for all dogs that are deemed social by their owners but if this is not possible then this charge will apply.

Any out of hours medication: $15 per day.  

Out of hours pick-up/drop off: $60. This must be by prior arrangement as this cannot always be accommodated.

Long stay discounts may apply during low season.


Cancellation Policy:

We understand that plans change, and we will do our best to accommodate these for you with your booking. Please be aware, however, that we have committed to taking your dog for the full duration of your booking and late cancellations or changes mean we are unable to offer your space to someone else and therefore fees may apply.

High Season

Cancellations must be made 10 days ahead of boarding commencement. Failure to do so will incur a $100 cancellation fee.

Low Season

Cancellations must be made 3 days (72 hours) ahead of boarding commencement. Failure to do so will incur a $100 cancellation fee.
