About Us

The Samford Pet Resort, previously Samford Boarding Kennels and Cattery was established in 1985, by Garth and Karen De Bruin and now by Director Blake De Bruin their son whose aim it is to provide the very best home-away from-home for Brisbane's dog and cat population.

The facility was established after many years of showing, breeding and obedience training of Samoyeds, Newfoundlands and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Garth and Karen saw a need for a Professional Pet Resort to provide facilities above and beyond the normal offering.

Blake, Garth and Karen combined boast over 70 year’s direct experience in the industry, so you can be assured that your pets are well cared for and in professional hands.

So, the Samford Pet Resort is set on 40 picturesque acres overlooking the Samford Valley (just 21km from Brisbane's CBD) they set out to create the unique Samford Pet Resort.

In Oct 2000 they opened the first five star Dog Boutique Suites, with own room TV, Air-conditioned, bed, chairs and pillows, and three years later opened the Pussy Villas, for the very spoilt cats, own room, TV, Large scratching poles, beds air-conditioned and own outside Garden Atrium.

Our dog Saffy loved her recent stay at the Samford Pet Resort. For such an energetic dog, she came home so placid and happy. She also got to make a few friends whilst there, which is a big thing for her because she's usually quite shy and timid. Thanks must go to the wonderful staff at the Pet Resort. I would highly recommend Samford Pet Resort for your pets.

  • My two dogs visit the Samford Pet Resort on a regular basis and we have nothing but great things to report. The staff care for the pets if they were their own and I always know my dogs had a great time because the sleep the whole trip home! It's great to see my dogs get so excited on arrival and that the staff remember their names. Love your work guys!
