COVID-19 modified services
WE ARE NOW BOOKED OUT UNTIL MID JANUARY 2021
The primary contact number for all boarding or training enquires is still 9753 5766, option 2
Our services have always been in high demand, however, we have been inundated with calls since the approaching end of lockdown and we are trying our very best to catch up. Please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please also understand that we do take time with each enquiry to ensure everything is explained in detail and all questions are answered.
Due to Coronavirus restrictions, Alpha Boarding School For Dogs is modifying its services to provide a safer training service. To that end, we are no longer picking up your dogs or bringing them back home as is stated on this site. All training and course hand-backs are performed at our purpose-built boarding and training facility where you will be taught at the end of your course all the skills required to apply the training at home. We have applied this hand-back model to dogs from interstate and country areas for the last 24 years, and with all dogs since the beginning of COVID-19, with great results.
Alpha Boarding School For Dogs is an outlier in our industry and has pioneered methods and standards that go way beyond the impractical techniques of science-based training, and the lack of reality that goes with supposedly positive methods that allow dog behaviour to spiral out-of-control when so often these behaviours are relatively easy to modify or rehabilitate. So don't worry if previous methods have let your dog's behaviour worsen, we can still help. The methods we have developed are based in REALITY and are specifically aimed at teaching your dogs to listen and behave, when required, in distracting, day-to-day situations.
We look forward to discussing your dog's training and/or behavioural issues with you and explaining how we can help.
Thank you for your understanding in these crazy times.
Welcome to Alpha Boarding Kennels
Alpha Boarding Kennels is set in picturesque and peaceful surroundings for your pet's comfort and enjoyment!
Situated on 10 beautiful acres amongst the trees, wildlife and assorted farm animals up in the Dandenong Ranges, the air is fresh and the atmosphere is quiet, relaxing and non stressful for your dogs.
In fact, the loudest things around here are the Bellbirds, Magpies, Kookaburras and assorted parrots. Our valued and loyal clients often comment on just how peaceful it is at our kennel... even when we are full. This of course translates to calm, happy dogs who are content and comfortable in their surroundings - something we are very proud of!
We have dogs from all over Melbourne regularly staying here with us and have an ever growing number of veterinarians, again from suburbs all over Melbourne, referring to both our boarding and training services.
Take a look around the site and feel free to call us and discuss any boarding or training enquiries, to book your dog in with us or to organise a tour of our boarding facility in person - come and see what makes our kennel so special. We'd love to show you around.
