Dog Boarding

We provide large dog boarding kennels with individual runs, each sporting a secure room for evening sleep time. You will be impressed with the size of these kennels!

Cat Boarding

We accommodate cats on a separate property (Cubbins Boarding Cattery) with no barking dogs, in an exceptionally clean environment with temperature control.

Other Pets

We board Rabbits, and Guinea Pigs, at our Cat Boarding facility. We accomodate birds at either Nelson Bay Kennels, or Cubbins Cattery.


Your dog will get staff supervised daily exercise (play time) in one of our four large, fully fenced yards, nestled amongst natural bushland with mature trees and lush green (real) grass. Your cat gets play time in our “famous” cat gym.


We supply your pet with quality pet food twice daily. If your pet has a special diet, you are able to bring this along and we will ensure they are fed in accordance with your advice.

Special Needs

Medication: If your pet requires medication prescribed by your vet we are qualified to administer these, any special needs will be catered for (please ask). Mature age pets: We understand that dogs and cats of a mature age require special attention and monitoring to ensure good health and wellbeing.

What Our Customers Say About Nelson Bay Kennels

On collecting “B” owner Jodie had following to say:

“Wow! he is so happy! When we dropped him off he didn’t want to leave my side and look at him now! He lives at home as an inside dog . He will be coming back to Nelson Bay Kennels for his next holiday for sure, its like a holiday in the country for him.”     Jodie – Tighes Hill

A Note From Cubbins Nelson Bay Kennels:

“B”  otherwise known as Bear is a standard poodle, but his character changed enormously during his stay with us. He started out very timid and shy. By the time he went home he was so outgoing you might think he was a different dog!

It's always nice when we get recogniton from our customers for the care we provide to their fur babies
