About Pilyara Boarding Kennels

Kennels 006I may be passionate about the Australian rural novels that I write, but my first love has always been dogs and horses. Our property, Pilyara, boasts a small boarding facility situated in Pakenham Upper, Victoria, with never more than ten dogs. This allows for plenty of personal attention. Our family have looked after animals in this beautiful rural location for more than twenty-five years. Dogs are walked daily.The kennels are spacious, right beside the house, and all have grassy runs. During the day, I rotate dogs out with me, while I’m gardening etc, so they have plenty of free time.

We provide all food, beds etc, but you are welcome to bring your own. Toys and blankets from home help the dogs settle in. Up-to-date vaccination cards are a must. There is a discount for more than one guest. New dogs are welcome to a complimentary overnight stay so we can all get to know each other. Genuine loving care is guaranteed and rates are very reasonable.

  1. Hi, we are wondering if when you board dogs do you ever keep dogs from the same family together? Also do you have any spaces available over the Easter long weekend. You were recommended from someone who has used you and it’s the would be the first time our dogs would be in a kennel environment. Thank you for your time.


  2. Hi Jennifer, I hope this message finds you well. I have not needed doggy accomodation for a few years, until now. I was wondering if you would have Whitney my Whippet from 21st to 28th Feb? Whitney is elderly now and very set in her ways I thought maybe I could leave her for a day or two in Jan just to familiarise her with you again.
    Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you
    Lynette 🙂
