Testimonials

At A1 Kennels & Cattery , we have always committed ourselves to remaining the number one pet boarding business in the Northern Territory.

But don't just take our word for it. Read through some examples of what our satisfied clients have had to say about the services we provide. If our guests could talk, we are sure they'd say the same thing! But their tail wagging says more than words ever could.

These guys went way above and beyond to help us out while moving interstate with our 2 dogs, cat and turtle. Their care and flexibility was appreciated so much! They went out of their way to make sure the animals were comfortable. Can't thank Dan and Christina and the team enough. They made this the least stressful part of moving for us.

Our dog potentially coming on heat and being an avid jumper over the highest of fences. But they made her part of their family and gave her the chance to meet and play with some new buddies. While we were away Christina and Daniel text us to let us know that our dog was enjoying herself and was very relaxed. This is exactly what we needed to know and from now on this is where our dog will go for her holidays when we go away. A1 Kennels has become like a second home for us in Darwin. Thank you Christina and Daniel for existing. Here's to a terrific 2017 for you all and we'll be visiting you again. Huge hugs from Peta and Michael and some lovely big licks from Asha.

I cannot recommend A1 enough. They looked after our dog Stiffy (who was there for a month) as if he was their own. When I picked him up he was in such good health, clean and happy. The staff and owners are the best. Pricing was reasonable. Will definitely be using them again.

A1 Kennels and Cattery is basically a 'second home' for our two cats. We always go away completely confident that Max and Lucy will be happy and safe. Damon, and his staff so obviously love their work, we would recommend them to anyone looking for the best pet boarding facility in Darwin. See ya somewhere!

— Mel and Keiron

Just picked our two dogs up from A1 Kennels and Cattery and we were pleasantly surprised at how happy and healthy our babies were. After 3 long weeks away it was a relief to know they were in good hands. Both dogs were washed & clean when we picked them up and in great condition. The pens are large and allow the dogs plenty of running space as well as playing time with the dogs next door. Also the facilities appeared clean, tidy & suitable for long stays with reasonable pricing. Overall, myself and my partner were very impressed by the new management of this establishment & highly recommend it for long or short stays! Thank you!

We had to bring our 2 cats to town unexpectedly, so with such short notice they welcomed our little fur babies. They made sure our vaccines were up to date and looked after our two cats brilliantly. We picked them up expecting them to be very rattled but were quite calm. The awesome people did let us know they were stressed first day and I have to say I am grateful they cared and noticed and wanted to share this info. The yards and area are vast and have a quiet peacefulness about them. I would definitely recommend this loving team as a home away from home when needed.

We just picked up our girl from A1 Kennels and Cattery & were very impressed with how well our dog had been looked after she was extremely happy and healthy. The facilities they offer are to a very high suitable standard for all pets. The owners were very professional and it was good knowing that they had all the animals best interest at heart. We were very impressed and highly recommend it, will definitely be using them again if needed. Much appreciated.

— Jim Pearce

I take my furbabies here everytime I go away and never have to worry, I always pick them up happy and healthy, and get told all the cute things they did while I was gone. The team genuinely care about animals and go the extra mile to make sure they are cared for, I strongly recommend them to anyone who cares about their pets.

— Chloe Morrell

We just would like to thank A1 kennels for doing an amazing caring job with our two dogs Lena and Charlie and especially our dog Lena that has a condition. Charlie was even better at pick up than at drop off! You are a magical place for dogs. Thank you A1 you are amazing and we are so grateful for what you've done.

— Zou Kahia

So happy with A1 kennels and cattery, beautiful family running the place, who went above and beyond for our family and our fur babies. Our dogs were well looked after and came home smelling a tonne better than how they went. Thank you for taking good care of our pooches Wombles and Nala.

— Jodie Blundell

We always use A1 when we go away. Awesome, friendly service from people that really love animals. Toby is always happy and healthy when we pick him up. Nice big runs for the dogs. Highly recommended.

— Sarah Louise Kuka

We moved from QLD to Darwin, and not knowing anyone in Darwin it was very nerve-racking when choosing who was going to look after our two Staffy's, as we didnt have a house to go straight into. Thankfully A1 made this feel very welcoming. They picked up our dogs from the airport with plenty of curiosity calls when they were arriving and settled in. The friendliest of staff who absolutely made us feel like our dogs were family to them, we were able to visit our dogs during opening hours during their stay until we found a house to move into. Highly recommended, we have already booked them in for when we next go away.

— Trent Hansen

Our little sausage dog spent a week at the A1 Kennels and loved it. He was well looked after and can't wait for his next doggy holiday there. Highly recommend.

— Hannah Felicity

Hi A1 Kennels, Thank you for taking good care of Jessie and Bella. As usual the dogs look very well, happy and in good condition. A great reunion had by all when they came home to Turbo and Penny.

My big 'demanding' German Shepherd came back in the same if not better condition than when I dropped him off 3 weeks ago, very pleased.
