Arafura Luxury Dog Resort

Comfortable short to long-term stays in country surrounds only 3.5km to Bundaberg CBD.  Dogs free range with their hosts, as if they were visiting relatives.  They watch TV in the lounge, and at bedtime, they choose where they want to go.

About Us

Kevin and Kathleen Radford welcome your dog to Arafura Luxury Dog Resort. 

We understand the need for people wanting their dogs to be comfortable in a nurturing environment, and this is also important to us too.  Because we both enjoy dogs company (probably more than humans), we are prepared to share our home with them so that their owners can rest easy that their pets are getting the attention they need and love.

In order to help us, we need owners to understand the importance of the C5 Vaccination to prevent kennel cough, and also to keep their pet current with flea and tick treatment.  Its also helpful to have your dog desexed when they are mixing with other dogs, plus having them registered to avoid any issues with the local council.  Therefore, we ask that you provide us with the evidence of their vaccinations, desexing, council registration and anything else you deem helpful.

It's also nice to have your dog washed prior to bringing it here, or let us know that your dog requires a wash.  If so, a donation towards the cost of washing your dog would be appreciated.

If you wish to bring bedding, toys etc for your dog, please label them.  We are also happy to feed them their special diet if you provide it.

Often we need to have an introductory session for us to decide whether or not your pet is suitable for this place.  For example, your pet may be very frail or sick, or have other issues.  Please understand if we deem your dog unsuitable to this place.  It is our priority to provide a safe and friendly environment for all our guests.

For the more wintry months, we have a selection of dog coats available.  Prices are negotiable.

We have some forms to be filled in prior to accepting your dog.  You can contact us with your email address so that we can forward these to you.  They need to be printed off before filling in, then scanned or photocopied to be sent back.
