Through the ages and today dogs have loyally served the needs of humans, offering us their remarkable skills, devotion and empathy. We honour that service and that bond. All dogs need the mental stimulation and physical benefits of exercise and the reassurance of human attention. Dogdayz is built on a philosophy of giving back to dogs a little of all we have received from them. Our values are our guide: to keep them happy, keep them healthy, keep them safe.
The Origins of Dogdayz go back to 1956, the year of the Melbourne Olympics. In that year, Mrs. Anne Stewart, a well-respected breeder and show judge of Border Collies, established a boarding kennel at Warrandyte: Lyndon Park, which established a reputation for high standards and individualised care. In 1998, the business transferred to current owner and Director David Ellis. David identified the need for this same high quality care in other locations—subsequently opening in Silvan (initially as ‘Lyndon Grange’) and Toolern Vale. Early in 2013 the business rebranded as Dogdayz across all three sites. Today, Dogdayz offers a range of premium dog care services: boarding, daycare, pet transport and dog health care – exceptional dog care to all dogs across metropolitan Melbourne.
The key to our service at Dogdayz is the empathy, dedication and professionalism of our staff. Here are some of the faces that you will see when visiting our boarding kennels.
With almost 20 years’ experience in the Boarding Industry, David is passionate about caring for his clients. It is this passion that has led to the highest standard of care and accommodation that our clients receive every day.
