A very special part of our Doggy Doater's role is to be able to care for our Golden Oldie guests as they enter their 'golden' years of life. We offer care and accommodation for any breed and size guest who are in their senior years.
This is a job that we are honored to be able to do and understand what a hard time it can be to leave your oldie when you have to travel.
With 24 hour care you can be sure your 'Golden Oldie' will be given the highest level of attention and love whilst enjoying their holiday with us.
We offer easy to access low line bedding for those suffering arthritis. Movement from inside to outside through our large human size doors throughout the day is easily accessible with no ramps or stairs and comfortable bedding available throughout all areas.
Our oldies enjoy the same 7 star luxury suites as our other guests, with fully heated and cooled rooms so we can temperature control their inside space all year round. A TV to provide light background noise and of course, the love and care of our Doggy Doaters all day long.
We understand the needs of our Golden Oldies can vary and our Doggy Doaters are fully trained and equip to help in anyway they can, this includes but is not limited to assistance with mobility, getting up and down and moving around, assistance with going to the bathroom, massages and gentle walks to help those sore joints and administering medication, including oral, liquid and injections.
With assistance from the minute they arrive to the minute they depart, you can find comfort in knowing your Golden Oldie is getting the 7 star treatment they deserve whenever they come to holiday at We Love Dogs.
Our Small Breed Luxury Care, offers a 7 star holiday, from the time of arrival to time of departure. Our Luxury Suites offer the perfect home away from home, fitted with TV's, luxury couches and bedding and access all day from indoors to an undercover court yard (meaning protected outdoor access all day, regardless of the weather) leading onto a beautiful, artificial K9 grassed play yard with a drainage system underneath. This means even after heavy rain, our guests can enjoy roaming around on a grassed area that isn't wet or muddy.
Our large outdoor spaces offer perfect play areas for those social little butterflies who we can pair with compatible play mates, based on size, temperament and personality. For those who come in as families that just want the space to themselves or those who prefer the company of the Doggy Doaters instead of 4 legged friends, we are always happy to accommodate by showering with plenty of extra cuddles and love.
Although here at our Pearcedale location, we are only suitable to accommodate larger guests who require special needs care (golden oldies, advanced medical needs, post operative rehabilitation care - wait for posts later this week for more info!) that doesn't mean that your younger, larger breeds pooches have to miss out.

Dogs Country Club and Kennel Resort is located on 13 acres at the start of the Mornington Peninsula and with 10 different areas separating all guests by size, temperament and personality you can assured that your pooch will be cared for in only the highest standards.

Want to keep your pooch included in the Easter fun this weekend? Why not get together with the kids (big and little kids!) and make some yummy Easter Biscuit Dog Treats?!
What you will need:
1 and ¼ Cups Rice Flour
2 Free Range Eggs
2 Tablespoons Coconut Oil
¼ cup Whole Wheat Flour
Want to decorate with icing?
Natural Food Coloring
Time to cook!
Crazy to believe we are already coming around to celebrating Easter. The Easter Eggs and Hot Cross Buns are out in full at the supermarkets and nearly all of us will be spending this long weekend at home with our pets.
Although of all of these extra yummy treats are delicious for us to enjoy, it's very important to remember they are not safe for our pets. Dogs and Cats alike are very good at sniffing out treats hidden on the bench or some have even worked out how to get into the cupboards. So be sure to remember the toxic foods that MUST be hidden away where your pets can't reach them.
The sturdy, confident Jack Russell is a breed everyone knows. They date back to as early as the mid 1800’s where they were used as a hunting dog for small game, ideal for foxes as they were able to dig into their dens. Their name originates from a minister, name Rev. John Russell.
As they became so popular as working dogs, the Jack Russell Terrier Association of America, in 2003, changed their name to the Parsons Russell Terrier Association of America, from this time onward the working line of Terriers was known as the Jack Russell whilst the American show Terriers were known as the Parsons Russell Terrier (longer legged Jack Russell)
Today, they are great little family pets who always provide plenty of entertainment. They come in a smooth or rough coat in varying colours, breed standard states white should be the predominate colour with at least 51% of the coat being white with a mixture of either black or brown markings and in some rare cases brindle markings have been recorded. Both the smooth and rough coats are easy to groom and maintain with regular brushing and bathing only when needed.
From their past blood lines, the Jack Russell Terriers of today are a fearless breed. As with all dogs, if raised correctly around young children and other dogs they are great within the family. Being a strong-minded breed, they require a pack leader from day one to avoid any small dog syndrome issues. Training and boundaries need to be set and followed from a young age to avoid destructive and aggressive behaviours – which are a known trait of unruly Jack Russell’s. Daily exercise is a must, to help burn their physical and mental energy. They are known to be great jumpers so if their needs aren’t met, they may just take themselves off on their own adventure to explore and keep themselves busy.
Although a great little dog, the Jack Russell is not just for everyone and thrive in a balanced environment where they are part of the family but not the boss of the family.
Although we are currently navigating through some uncertain times, the one thing that we can all agree on is our Dog's put a smile on our faces. So there is no better time to share our next April Dog of the Month for 2020. A big congratulations to.....
The Jack Russell Terrier. Little Miss Milly is full of personality and loves her cuddles and play times with toys of course!
With her beautiful little face how can you not just fall in love with her straight away?! We know you will enjoy her upcoming blog too!
The Moodle, also known as a Maltipoo, is a hybrid breed of dog, mixing the Maltese with a Poodle. They offer another option for those who enjoy the very popular mix of Oodles by mixing a Poodle with another small breed dog. Essentially, by have a Poodle in the mix, this should offer little to no shedding so makes the breed ideal for those with allergies or sensitives to dog fur.
But did you know the interesting facts about each of these breeds that come together to make the Moodle?
We are very excited to announce our March 2020 Dog of the Month is.....
This adorable little bundle just melts the heart of all the Doggy Doaters. Little Miss Ruby is a Moodle, Maltese cross Poodle and she is just a lover! She adores being adored and rightly deserves the crown as princess for the month of March!
The original Pomeranians were much larger in size, weighing up to 30 pounds, and were developed from the ancient Spitz breeds. The Pomeranian got its name from the region of Pomerania, which is now the area of Germany and Poland and originally worked as Sheep Herders. Many famous people in history owned this beautiful breed, including Marie Antoinette, Emile Zola, Mozart and was eventually shown and bred down in size by Queen Victoria herself. The Pomeranian is an intelligent breed who makes superior circus performers!
Did you know that Pomeranians come in a range of different colours and patterns, and the colour of their nose varies with the coat colour? How cool is that!
Grooming is a high priority for this breed, their double thick coat require daily brushing and regular professional grooming.
Although Pomeranians are ideal for Apartment Living, they do require a daily walk and play through-out the day – Playing alone will not fulfill their primal instinct to walk and discover. Those who do not get to go on a daily walk are more likely to display behavior problems as Pomeranians are prone to falling victim to ‘Little Dog Syndrome’. This is a human induced behavior that is NOT Pomeranian traits, and may cause your little one to become anxious, temperamental and aggressive towards larger dogs. They also bark and yap to tell their human what to do as most humans treat this toy sized companion in such a manner that they do not see them in the way of a pack leader, for this reason are not recommended for children and would be much better suited for the elderly or a confident, mature owner.
Scary to believe that we are already at the time to announce our second dog of the Month for 2020.
We are excited to share that our Dog of the Month for February is....
This adorable little Pomeranian mix has just melted his way into the hearts of all the Doggy Doaters, and with a cute little face like that - how couldn't he?!
