Accommodation

Construction

Each dog has an individual kennel, unless requested otherwise by the owner. Each kennel is separated by solid partitions of washable material to facilitate cleaning and disinfecting. The sleeping area is protected from rain and wind, and are cool and ventilated.

Outdoor Run

The outside exercise run has weld mesh dividers with wire overhead to curtail escape artists. The wire is covered with shade cloth to give shade and comfort. Dogs are placed appropriately to reduce noise and we allocate suitable neighbours. The entire area is concreted with adequate drainage.

Noise

Our original kennels are separated into in five banks. Two of these banks are only for the small dogs and they have their own exercise areas. In order to comply with noise regulations, they do not face each other. This helps reduce noise from excited barking.

Bedding

Each original kennel is supplied with a trampoline bed.

We discourage bringing bedding and toys from home. We have plenty of blankets and toys available here. Dogs often bring items out of their kennels or even chew and destroy them. Royal Rover cannot be held responsible for the non-return of items brought from home.

If you really feel it necessary to bring bedding or items from home, we will endeavour to have them washed and ready for you on your return providing they are clearly labelled with your name. Waterproof markers are available in our reception office. HOWEVER you will be asked to sign a waiver, releasing Royal Rover from any responsibility should the item/s be lost or destroyed.

Security

Kennels are fitted with a secure closing device that cannot be opened by the dogs, but allows ready access in the event of an emergency. Security fences are in place between banks to prevent escape of dogs. The entire compound is enclosed with six foot chain wire with a lockable gates to prevent unauthorized entry with an Alarm system at the main gate. Provision is made for bitches in season of which we need to be informed.

C5 vaccination paperwork

a lead to take your dog from the car to the office and to the kennels (then take it with you)

A jacket if necessary

Any necessary medication

Premium Kennels

Royal Rover’s Premium kennels are open at last and they are amazing!

They have been designed for families with more than one dog in mind.

Bright and airy during the day with views to outside, these 12 double sized kennels with comfortable beds are a step above. Each kennel is 5m long by 1.5m wide. There is a mesh gate that can be left open or closed to facilitate separate feeding or sleeping if required. The walls are solid, insulated, easy to clean panels. There are mesh ceilings to stop even the springiest dogs jumping out.

Our Premium Kennels are serviced by two huge exercise yards and dogs are in and out all day keeping them entertained.

During extreme weather and at night, we close the insulated panel lift doors and allow the air-conditioner with fresh air intake to do its job. Dogs are far cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter.

If leaving your precious dogs in kennels through the extremes of Summer or Winter worries you, check out our photos to see the Premium Kennel difference, or better still come for an inspection. We are open for inspection 7 days a week between 11am and 12pm with the exception of public holidays.

If you think we are too far away, we can organise a door to door “Pet Taxi” to just about anywhere in Sydney.

Spacious, hygienic indoor kennels with comfortable bedding.
Premium air conditioned dog boarding kennels
Air-conditioning with fresh air intake that can be set to a constant temperature.
The more energetic dogs love the 2metre wide track around the outside which is great for chasing games and encourages them to run.
This is the inside walk way. The dogs love to use their windows to see what’s going on.
12 metre round yard inside a 16 metre round yard. This allows us to exercise 2 groups of dogs (or single dogs) simultaneously.
