Dogs Boarding - Sydney

SmallPaws Pet Hotel is the only pet hotel in Sydney that cares exclusively for small dogs. Small dogs settle much easier in our non-threatening environment. We accept dog boarding guests from all over the city, including the North Shore and the Northern Beaches.

Unlike traditional dog boarding kennels, we provide a home away from home ambience for all of our little dogs. We truly care for all of our guests, so naturally lots of exercise in one of our grassed areas or indoor play area is included for every guest. At SmallPaws, we also believe that lots of human interaction helps dogs to settle in and feel at home. Our philosophy is that all pets in our care receive the same love and care that we would give to our own dogs. All of our guests are known individually by name.

All of the accommodation is heated and air conditioned.
There are 3 levels of accommodation:
  • The Pucci Suites
  • Deluxe Suites
  • The Lodge

Cat Boarding - Sydney

At SmallPaws we want each of our cat hotel guests to feel at home and settled as soon as possible after their arrival.

We believe this is easier if the ambience is non-threatening and peaceful. Relaxing background music is played, and each cat has their own double enclosure connected with a cat flap. The side walls to the enclosure are solid, and each ‘room’ has a hiding box and soft bed. One side of the enclosure is on the inside of the cattery, and the other half is on the outside, where each cat can enjoy fresh air and views of the garden (and wildlife!). The inside of the cattery is heated and air-conditioned. It is a fantastic step above a traditional cattery for North Shore, Northern Beaches and wider Sydney owners who really care about their cat’s experience during their stay.

In addition there are 2 fully enclosed exercise areas, where cats can take their turn running around, exploring and getting closer to nature.

We offer two packages for boarding in our cattery, The Lodge and Deluxe Packages.
