With both of us being brought up with the love for animals in our blood it made the decision to open a dog boarding kennel establishment 6 years ago an easy one.  Matt was raised on a cattle farm, just up the road in Molesworth, while Kelly has been training and competing her own horses since she was a little girl. This has given us both a broad range of animal knowledge.


We have both owned and been associated with all different breeds of dogs since we were old enough to walk.

Our daughter Georgia has been raised around the kennels and has a strong love for dogs.  Sometimes you will see our little apprentice giving us a hand with our guests.

 Whether it be a cattle dog, a lap dog or a show dog, old, young or has special needs we treat all our guests with the same love, respect and attention they require. 

We live on our farm 'Pleasant Banks' which is housing 'Country Lodge Kennels' giving your dog the optimum attention they deserve.  Living on the premises allows us more flexibility in the attention your dog needs, allowing for additional exercise, medication to be administered at particular times and the overall safety and care your pet requires during their stay.


We also have amazing staff members who are very knowledgeable and trained by us, who's passion towards dogs and Country Lodge Kennels is demonstrated through the care and dedication they provide.  Our staff will happily assist you with any questions and take great care of your dog/s, giving Kelly, Matt & Georgia a little personal and family time. 

We will make your dog feel like 'Country Lodge Kennels' is a home away from home
