Our mission is to “let dogs be dogs”
in providing a loving, caring, safe and fun home environment

Your dog will be cared for in a family home environment and will receive care, love & attention, second only to yours.

Located (just 10 mins from the Ourimbah exit off the M1) in the charming and picturesque Central Coast.  Set on 5 acres of lush and beautiful gardens, this is a relaxed holiday environment being the perfect answer for dog owners who want the best care whilst they are away, and assurance that their dog will be loved and pampered together with daily walk, exercise and games.  

All dogs that stay with Hip Hound Holidays go home with kisses and cuddles.  Reward their love, faithfulness & devoted attention, and you'll both come back refreshed!

I have hands on knowledge, genuine passion, and experience with dogs gained over 30 years, including several years as a minder.  For your peace of mind, I have a certificate in a Pet Saver Training Program which is training in skills and techniques of Pet CPR, First Aid & Care for dogs.  I am currently studying Dog Care and Natural Animal Health Care.

"Creating and establishing Hip Hound Holidays was the harnessing of a passion for dogs, and an opportunity to give dog owners a choice in the style of holiday accommodation."
