At 'It's A Dogs Life' our vision and our philosophy are simple.......

'Family care for your family pet'


Our Family have been operating  It’s a Dog’s Life Boarding Kennels, Cattery & Grooming since 2001. Our facility is located in Deanside, Victoria only 25 km west of Tullamarine International Airport, and within a “coo-wee” of Melbourne CBD.

Built on 30 acres, our operations include:

  • Separate boarding facilities for dogs and cats

  • Dog Wash Service

  • Pickup and Drop-off Service

  • Retail outlet

  • Dog Park (aka Paw Print Park)

  • Outdoor cat courtyard

Over the years our family have built this business on the pillars of Trust, Courtesy, Friendliness and pure old fashioned Customer Service.  

Our new and returning clientele can always be assured that their pets are looked after and cared for to the best of our ability.  

 Owned and operated by two Brothers and two Sisters 'It’s a Dogs Life' is the result of a shared passion in which we share a common interest rather than a job.
