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. Our beautiful property in Baxter is the perfect answer for your full of energy, large breed pooches! 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. With large quarter acre grass paddocks surrounding the property, it ticks all the boxes for your large breed, high energy, young, healthy doggies. Click HERE to find out more about Dogs Country Club.

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.
