PUBLIC HOLIDAY SURCHARGE
At ‘It’s A Dogs Life’ we do not increase our boarding rates during normal peak periods (i.e.: school holidays, Christmas / New Year, long weekends etc). However to help with the cost of operating our services you will incur a public holiday surcharge that will automatically be invoiced to you at booking. This is only a one day charge for any public holiday that your pet/s is staying with us.
These surcharges are charged as follows:
DOG : …$10.00 per enclosure booked
CATS :…$5.00 per enclosure booked
Our office is closed to the public on all allocated Victorian Public Holidays (except Easter Monday). There are no pickup, drop-offs or transport services available on these days.
There is a 10 night minimum stay for bookings that include boarding between the following dates:
20th December - 31st January
This minimum stay is irrespective of the number of pets boarding.
For all other times of the year there are no minimum stay requirements.
BOARDING DEPOSITS & PAYMENTS
Payment for your pets stay is to be made in full, either prior, or on the day of admission. Generally no deposits are required, except for the peak periods that are set out below.
A peak period is considered as:

Christmas & New Year period between 20th December through till the 31st January
All bookings that include any part of a peak period requires an upfront 30% deposit to be paid in order to secure and confirm your booking. All bookings will remain ‘unconfirmed’ until a deposit has been recieved.
