Pets - dogs and cats.

Other domesticated and housetrained pets are welcome. We do not take outdoor dogs.

The shady front verandah and back gardens are secure for all but the most athletic of large dogs and the tiniest of toy dogs. Planks are provided for the gap between the fence bottom and the ground (a 6 inch space).

Local vets recommend that all dogs and cats on the Eastern Coast receive anti Tick medication.

Pets should be up to date with all their vaccinations, and be on a tick and flea prevention program

Local veterinarians recommend Front-Line as the best for the area, as this acts on both ticks and fleas. Front Line is available from your vet. Program and Proban, systemic flea and tick killers are also suitable.It is best to see your vet for suitable medication before you leave home.

PLEASE, for the comfort of your pet and our guests, deflea your pet before your visit.

Walks in the area


 

We like dogs that are part of your family and live inside, with you.

We do not recommend that outside dogs be taken to strange houses. Their comfort zone is related to the place they live in as much as the people they are with, and they become very distressed when kept outside in a strange yard.
THERE IS A VET AT PACIFIC PALMS AND ALSO IN FORSTER (TURN RIGHT AT THE McDONALDS ROUNDABOUT AND IT IS IMMEDIATELY ON THE LEFT

Where you can go with your dog...

Whether swimming in the lake or walking on the lake front, your dog should be 'under control' and leashed in public places.

There are a number of recreational areas within the Great Lakes area where dogs are allowed to be exercised. The provision of these areas is important for the exercise and socialisation of animals as well as for recreational use by owners. Dogs in public places are generally required to be on a leash and under control of a competent person. However, dogs may be exercised, unrestrained, in the following leash free areas, however you must still control your dog.

Leash Free Areas:
