The Doggy Day Care is the best our German Shepherd has such a fun amazing time every week. I get sent awesome photos of her having fun and she gets to have the best time with other dogs.
I sent my 2 dogs there for 4 days and Sonseray the dog behavourist worked with their behaviour problems as one was a newbie from Spc. Oh my goodness what a difference and what caring people. Thank you so much to you all. Highly recommended
Today our dogs started boarding at the hotel. Got some pics already! Settling well ! Have the feeling they are gonna have an amazing holiday surrounded by other dogs and lovely staff taking care of them!
We entrusted our Bull Terrier Kasino to the Durban Dog Hotel once a week for daycare and have never looked back!! Kasino simply loves being there and loves all the people that so lovingly take care of her. We are super happy with the service and can truly say that Kasino is too! Thank u to the team at Durban Dog Hotel for entertaining and exercing our very active girl! 😁
Harvey just loves the Durban Dog Hotel. It's his home away from home. He first went there as a 3 month old puppy and continues to visit when ever he gets a chance. The Dog Hotel has helped him socialise with other dogs and he just loves the staff.
