Terms and Conditions (PDF)



MONDAY TO SATURDAY: $65 p/night. SUNDAY: $75 p/night. Off peak weekly rates $400 p/week.

CHRISTMAS, EASTER and PUBLIC HOLIDAYS: $85 p/night; $560 per week and 10% discount for more than 10 days.

Keep in mind that costs reflect the fact that we are limited in numbers with visitors supervised 24/7 and never left alone. They have full free range run of the Inn, sleep inside and are not closed into a kennel or cage for the evening. However, there is a comfy cage available if needed for those dogs who have become used to them since puppy training.

Dogs must be desexed, fully vaccinated, over two years old, house trained and not destructive.
Please check our Frequently Asked Questions and Suitability Assessment for Home Boarding Page before contacting us.
With our limited home yard space, we're sorry, but cannot cater for American Staffies or Alsation/X breeds. Even when well socialised, they can be just that bit too boisterous for the other holidaymakers. Once introduced, dogs with special needs as well as larger breeds requiring long walks are welcome.

Cost includes walks, supervised play time, washes for muddy feet and dirty bottoms. As Jackie often tells clients: "leave the grooming until after the Paws Inn adventure holiday."
Food is not included to ensure no tummy upsets. Dogs are fed separately according to times and amounts as detailed by owners and included on their Booking Form. They are allowed to check each others empty bowls to make sure they haven't missed out on anything. Medication details are put in writing to ensure no mistakes.

An introduction is required before booking overnight stays. After making an appointment, our Booking Form is completed on line beforehand so Jackie and John have full details and are prepared before meeting clients and their dogs. Introductions take about 20 minutes.



Once introductions are over and you have decided to book your dog into Paws Inn, please download and sign out Terms and Conditions and bring it with a copy of your dog's updated vaccination certificate when you drop your dog at Paws Inn.

Then, or beforehand, we make sure all the paper work is read and signed and that feeding and any medication details are checked.
If your dog does have special dietary and/or medication requirements, please put it in writing to avoid any unnecessary mistakes.

We will also have checked that your pet is over two years old, house trained, not destructive, calm and sociable with other dogs as well as being fully up to date with vaccinations.



Clients pay 50% of fees at time of booking to ensure placement with balance at least two weeks before the start of services.

The booking is forfeited if no payment has been received by this time.

PAYMENT METHODS: Electronic transfer available with details given at time of booking.

There's plenty of shade for doggy day care and dog boarding customers in the backyard of Paws Inn as regular customers (L to R) Lady, Harvey and Othello demonstrate.

Paws Inn Holidays


Socialising with other dogs is the most valuable part of staying at Paws Inn.  There is also plenty of play time with John.
Play time is fully supervised. Overnight visitors have daily walks; rest time and play before bed time.
There are no cages of kennels. Beddy-byes are inside at Paws Inn.

Individual Care

SPECIAL NEEDS have always been an important part of the service at our small, family run Paws Inn business at Botany Bay.

With a limited number of dogs at the Inn at any one time, we can see to the needs of older dogs or those needing medication.

One such regular customer was Jackson (pictured) a 10 year old Lab who didn't always realise he only had three legs.   Although Jackson has gone to doggy heaven, owner, Jane Russell, said she was happy and proud for Paws Inn to keep his image on our web site.

Big Dogs Welcome


Walks are limited to our home stay customers who have all been to Paws Inn for an introduction.

This ensures there are no aggression or unsociable issues with other dogs staying at the Inn.

With his popular one hour plus walking-workouts, John has built up a strong customer following for larger dogs.

Here he is with Cougar, the 50 kilo Rottweiler heading for their boot march at Sir Joseph Banks Park.  Cougar also turned out to be one of the gentlest dogs to have visited Paws Inn.
