About Abbie
Pet Farm is a boutique & unique holiday experience for your pet without the price tag.

In fact - most clients say "my pet won't want to come home!"

Hi, I'm Abbie and I am a qualified Vet Nurse (currently studying dog training and psychology) and Chief Pooch Officer at Pet Farm.

As Chief Pooch Officer it is my job to ensure your pet has the best time while you are away on holidays, as they are having a holiday of their own too!

The Pet Farm experience is an all-inclusive fee. We have our own doggie beach and puppy paddocks, unlimited creek swims, mineral pool swims and nature trail walks at no extra cost. All our guests receive a minimum of 3 daily outings and PLENTY of one-on-one time!

I live on acreage which is a pet paradise for those who love running in the outdoors, otherwise, we have a lovely fenced off area that the pups would also enjoy. For those who have cats or indoor pets, we have an air-conditioned house and plenty of room to run around in to stay out of the summer heat.

I absolutely love spending each and every moment with animals. I also hold an RSPCA approved pet sitting certificate as well as a current National Police Certificate.

I am great with giving medications, injections or looking after special needs pets. Your pet will get as much attention that it needs, and I send photos every day of your pet to let you know how they are going.

We provide enrichment toys for ALL our guests, giving them food in stimulating ways, such as a wide range of KONG toys to chose from, frisbees, automatic ball throwers, Adaptil for our anxious guests, so you can be assured that your pet will have the best holiday too! All of our doggie farm stay guests are provided with charcoal filtered rain water fountains, so they can enjoy the taste of luxury in an enriching way.

We take pride in looking after our feline guests, which are given a cat scratching pole, lots of enrichment with cat KONGS, Feliway , we grow our own catnip and pet grass, as well as giving them their own private room with lots of hidey holes and piped music to relax in (as well as LOTS of cuddles and attention). This allows our guests to be relaxed and settled during their stay. As you know, cats can be fussy in the water that they drink. All our guests are given charcoal filtered rain water to drink from our premium fountains so that you can ensure your baby will stay happy and healthy.

There is plenty of room for our guests to climb, jump and pounce around their holiday suite, and have the time of their life! Our holiday suites have amazing views to look out into nature, where they can listen to the birds sing and enjoy the farm fresh breeze.

We also have a fully fenced outdoor playground for the cats to use, filled with enrichment activities where your cat can play, hunt and scratch in a secure area. (Please note - the outdoor playground is only available for cats who are on flea and tick prevention.) We also feed our feline guests only the best - Hills Science Diet wet and dry food. Upon request, we are happy to feed your baby at no extra cost.

As we know it is a busy time getting away for your holiday, we also offer Pet Taxi services for pickup and drop off.

We book up very quickly due to high demand, so please book in advance to secure your spot!

Note - we charge $5 extra per day for non-desexed males and females in heat.

I have experience with dogs, cats, horses, goats, birds, pigs etc. The list goes on and on! Please feel free to message me at any time if you would like any more information on me or anything at all!

Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting staffordshire bull terrier's for doggie farm stays.
