About Us

Bayside Pet Centre has a collective total of 30 years worth of knowledge, including caring for dogs, animal husbandry and showing.

Peter had previously developed and co-owned a successful Dog Boarding Kennel on the Peninsula. We endeavoured to find another great Dog Boarding Kennel that we could purchase that was actually dog friendly and also within the Melbourne Metropolitan area. Somewhere we would be happy to leave our own dogs and within an easy 20 minute drive from most Bayside and South Eastern suburbs. Since we have been in the Dog Boarding Kennel industry for many years, we have visited numerous Dog Boarding Kennels along the way. We have found that most Dog Boarding Kennels have only been designed mindful of the operator’s requirements, but not taking into consideration the specific physical and mental requirements of your dog.

We wanted a unique and special Dog Boarding Kennel, so it took us a while to find Bayside Pet Centre as we were very fussy and quite specific in our requirements. We required it to be spacious, well set out and with many safe garden areas for our cheeky, energetic furry friends. It had to be in a great location, not too far from the CBD, with a set up enabling boarding dogs to have a relaxed and happy stay.

We finally found and purchased Bayside Pet Centre in November 2005. Bayside Pet Centre is continually being improved, ensuring high standards are kept.

BAYSIDE PET CENTRE is your dog’s number one choice for a great Dog Boarding Kennel holiday experience!

“Naari” the retired dressage horse and “Sally” the pony also reside at Bayside Pet Centre, living next to the kennels. They both seem to enjoy the company of boarding dogs and provide entertainment for our boarders… (Boarding dogs love to watch the two horses wandering about the paddock!) The dogs tend to relax as the horses are calming and give the property a country feel in suburbia.
