Why Choose Us for your Cat, Dog or Pet?

At A Country Home, the welfare of our boarders is paramount. We have a wonderful indoor/outdoor facility meticulously maintained and cleaned with veterinary grade cleaners and sanitisers.

Nic & Dave are both passionate about animal welfare and believe our kennel and cattery, located in a calming rural setting provides an ideal place for your pets to stay while you are away.

Situated in Amberley  a couple of kilometres from SH1, A Country Home is ideally located for travellers heading north or south through Amberley who are seeking the best possible care for their pets.

After all your furry friends deserve a fun filled vacation as well.

Pick up and drop off hours are between:

  • 08:00 and 09:30 in the morning, and
  • 4-6pm in the afternoon.


We ask you respect these hours as the dogs generally settle between these times and are unsettled by people arriving and departing.
