Welcome to RIDGEVIEW RETREAT. A true Doggie Oasis! Fully Fenced Acreage for Safety & Security. DAILY HIKES ARE INCLUDED IN OUR RATES (weather permitting)
Our Motto is "A TIRED DOG IS A HAPPY DOG!"
Fully Fenced Acreage to keep your pooches safe and secure! We absolutely adore dogs - big dogs, little dogs, all dogs! Little dogs that act like big dogs & big dogs that think they're little dogs .. hee hee. PLEASE NOTE THAT PACK WALKS ARE ALREADY INCLUDED IN OUR RATES.
My husband & I have over 1.5 acres FULLY FENCED property - 12 mins to Robina, 6 mins to M1. We do pack walks/hikes around the Bonogin Hills & our motto is "a Tired Dog is a HAPPY Dog!" Social interaction & play are also top priorities.
We have 3 fully fenced grassed yards (1.6m high with s/steel mesh fencing on bottom), as well as a large undercover alfresco area and a huge pool and entertainment area - so in all 4 separate yards - which can all be connected, or all kept separated. But we advocate the socialisation with both large and small dogs (fully supervised) in our 'open kennel environment'.
Depending on size, age and fitness we would gladly take your furry baby on our daily walk, and we advocate the use of positive reinforcement for training and managing behaviours. When staying for an Overnight Stay, or Day Boarding, the walks are INCLUDED in the fee.
We advocate Cesar Milan training techniques to keep our own pooches & guests, calm and harmonious whilst in our care. We sometimes use Backpacks (in the cooler months only) & always use Slip Leads when we walk all the pooches.
I have an RSPCA Dog Minding (Pet Sitting) Certificate, Advanced Diploma in Dog Psychology and Behavioural Science, as well as a Police Background Check Clearance also.
We also offer Day Boarding on Mondays to Fridays (no weekends unfortunately) with fully supervised socialisation and pool playtime too. Pack Walks are included in the Day Boarding rates. Please note that spaces are limited, so book ahead to guarantee your furry baby being spoilt by Ridgeview Retreat and give you complete peace of mind whilst you are away.
If you would like your beloved pooch to stay and sleep indoors .. not a problem .. but they MUST be able to either use the doggie door (if small enough), otherwise old enough to know to 'hold it for the night' .. if not, they will sleep under the alfresco or extra large dog house.
No type of aggression will be tolerated.
