ALL DOGS

A lot of care is taken to settle new arrivals into K9 River Retreat and to eliminate any fear or anxiety. We use calming spray and lavender oil for any dogs that are a little nervous. Time is spent settling dogs into their bedrooms at night, to ensure their comfort and safety. All dogs are given daily cuddles and playtime with Chris and Petra and their trusted staff. All dogs are bathed and groomed on departure day, plus we also offer professional grooming services.

Diet

Dogs are fed a healthy balanced diet of cooked chicken mince, vegetables and rice, as well as holistic Australian made ‘Blackhawk’ dry food. The frequency of feeds and the amount of food given to each dog varies depending on the individual dogs requirements. If your dog is on a special diet, you are welcome to supply your own food.

Medication

Petra is qualified to administer all medications and injections.
