Pet Resorts near Adelaide?

I am going on a driving holiday around SA again and need to leave my dog along the way somewhere. I would prefer somewhere north of the city, say between Burra and Adelaide or close the CBD proper. I know I can "Google It" and have, but does anyone have a personal recommendation of one?

This one I've used myself:

Animal Welfare League - Cormack Rd Wingfield 8348 1300

I work with dogs, these have been recommended through feedback from my clients in the area who frequently use them:

Penfield Boarding Kennels - Penfield Rd, Virginia 8380 9415

Petherton Park Kennels - Lot 104 Spencer Street MacDonald Park 8284 7393

Naturally there are many others, but it is only these three that I can provide personal recommendations for.

Many thanks for that mate. In cases like this I like to go where I know it is likely to be good. Will check them out

From my own experience, I see the difference which set kennels apart to be:

Those which cater to special needs diets

Those which regularly exercise the dogs

Those which bath/groom the dogs prior to pick-up

Those which offer airconditioned boarding

Those with qualified staff (veterinary nurses, etc)

Those which request presentation of vaccination certificates prior to accepting an animal

My own suggestion, if possible make a random and unannounced call prior to boarding, to check cleanliness/hygiene, and overall conditions.
