Boarding Rhodesian Ridgebacks


For dogs purchased from Jarracada Kennels, we’re generally available to board dogs when your family goes on holiday, if we’re available. Your dog will be fed the same food (the BARF diet), get the same regular exercise (one or two big runs in a paddock each day), the same warm inside sleeping conditions, and the same loving care as our dogs.

ABOVE: Sleepover party.

We charge $25 a day. Bookings long in advance are preferred.

While we take the best care of your dog as we can, we have a few requirements:

  • We’ll only care for dogs
    • That were bred by Jarracada Kennels
    • That do not have a history of aggression
    • That are completely house-trained (that is, not to wee or poo inside)
    • That are de-sexed
  • Please ensure your dog is nicely washed within a day of being brought to us
  • We only feed dogs the BARF diet with a mix of chicken wings and meaty bones; please don’t bring food any food

What to bring when dropping off your dog:

  1. A bed for your dog, that it knows and likes
  2. One favourite dog toy
  3. Any medication your dog takes

Nothing else is required – please don’t bring anything extra.
