About Bendora

A team of pet lovers

Our dog boarding kennels and cat boarding flats are located on 25 acres on Canberra's northside. We're on the Federal Highway just past Watson as you're heading to Sydney or the coast, making us as convenient as you can get. We're open 7 days, and we're surrounded by farmland and fresh air too. 

Here's our focus:

We provide quality care at a reasonable rate. 

Simple as that. It's why our clients keep coming back, year after year.

Most importantly, we're all pet lovers at Bendora. We have years of experience caring for animals so we know when something's amiss. We're owned by Canberra's favourite retired veterinary surgeon, Peter Burgess, and you'll often catch him having a coffee and a chat on the verandah or checking on the health of our animals.  

Come in for a visit and a look around to see if we'd be a good to look after your pets.
