Looking for the best dog boarding and doggy daycare near Hobart for social dogs? You’ve found us! We treat our dog guest like family and give them constant attention and playtime.
Why are we the best dog boarding option near Hobart? Just 20ish minutes out of Hobart in Margate, Tasmania we enjoy wide, open green and sandy spaces made for dog playtime. Dog owners come to us if they want to treat their pups with a holiday. When it comes to concrete, the less the better. Couches and blankets are more our style. Self confessed crazy dog ladies, we are highly attuned to our dog boarding guests needs. Our dogs get loads of attention, playtime and supervision to make sure it’s a safe environment.
We are Southern Tasmania’s only free range dog boarding resort and doggie daycare.
We make sure our guests have company and plenty of social playtime. We are so focused on our dogs that we sometimes miss phonecalls. So if you’d like to get in touch to arrange a dog boarding trial for your dog, please email us and we will get back to you as soon as we have a moment when we aren’t throwing a ball or serving up healthy treats. The only dog boarding resort and dog daycare in Southern Tasmania that offers dogs hours of play every day.
Our dog boarding facilities focus on comfort, space and safety. We cater for no more than 20 dogs at any one time. When you leave your dogs with us you’ll be treating them to a holiday of their own. We pamper our dogs and most of our rooms have couches or beds to make their stay fun and comfortable. A great deal of thought and research went into the design of our boarding and exercise areas to create a safe, happy and healthy environment.
Safety and supervision comes first. Small group sizes, supervision and every dog does a trial first.
Your dogs comfort is key to us, and they are given space, comfortable bedding and green play areas.
We get to know you and your dog or dogs to make sure we can make your dog’s time with us enjoyable and enriching.
Our staff understand that dogs thrive on companionship, and ensure that dogs from the same family aren’t separated. All other dogs are buddied up in their room for company 24/7.
Our dog daycare offers fur baby parents peace of mind. While you work or enjoy time out of caring for your dogs, we provide them with a safe, playful and social environment with all the comforts of home.
Most dogs love being with other dogs! We offer a social environment with supervised collective playtime.
Our pricing is great value for money.

Our Big Red Doberman Louis loves it when he gets to go to Margate Country Kennels with his favourite (almost) person Amanda. She always makes sure he’s toasty warm and gets lots of cuddles
Harley my big boy german shepherd has stayed in kennels in Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart and Margate is by far the best. There interaction with the dogs is what sets them apart from other kennels..
My dog loves staying here! I didn’t have to worry about him when we went on a holiday and photos and videos on Facebook were proof that he was having a good time there.
We have taken our precious Sadie here a few times now and we are blow away by the amazing love care and service we have received from the family at Margate Country Kennels.

We're a dog resort, not dog kennels You’ve heard all the phrases – dog kennel, dog boarding, and now dog resort. So, what sets us apart from the pack? We offer a free-range dog boarding experience, different to the average dog kennel. A place where your dog can...
