About Us


We have owned Dandaleith Boarding Kennels & Cattery since February 1987. We have 3 children who have grown up at Dandaleith & learnt the joy of living with pets of all kinds.  It has been a precious & invaluable experience for them.  We of course have our own pets that are adored by us all:  2 ridgebacks (Stella & Stevie), 1 chihuahua (Lucy) who thinks she is a great dane, 2 cats (Megs & Trixie) & 2 cockatoos (Roger & No Name).

We live on-site (our house is 20 metres behind the Kennels & Cattery); we have always had the motto of caring for the pets in our care as if they are ours. By following this golden rule we hope to ensure all the pets in our care will feel happy & secure whilst with us.

This doesn’t mean just because someone loves animals of all kinds they know how to care for other people’s pets: all pets behave differently whilst in the care of other people or in a different environment. This is where our 32 plus years of experience becomes invaluable & surpasses any other kennel & cattery owner or operator in the Riverina area & perhaps NSW & Australia.

Over the years we have learnt to understand how pets respond in different environments, how they react to people they haven’t met before. We understand it is important to give the pets some time to take in their new, temporary home, with people they may not have met before.  We understand some pets react because they are unsure of themselves & we give them the time, our personal care, to allow them to relax & feel safe, comfortable & secure whilst they are with us.

So, it’s not just about loving & caring for pets of all varieties – we do, we couldn’t have looked after so many pets over 32 years if we didn’t love animals - but the most important thing is to understand why & how pets will behave & react in a temporary home.

We do this better than anyone else.
