We’re the type of owners who have always dreaded leaving our dog, Athena, a 9 year old black Labrador, behind when we go on holiday to places she can’t come with. She is on medication for a neck problem that needs special care, as it easily flares up due to stress . After being unhappy with two kennels previously, Lynni has now looked after Athena a few times and has shown us and Athena only the greatest professional attention, even sitting with her during thunderstorms so as to lessen her stress.

We are now so thankful to be able go away with peace of mind knowing that our loving and intelligent animal is so well taken care of in a secure , comfortable, clean and loving environment. I would be more than happy to recommend Four Paws Country Retreat to friends and family.

Four Paws Country Retreat certainly is home away from home for your special darlings. Lynni and her team love your babies just as much as you do and Lulu absolutely loves going to Four Paws and enjoys playing with all the other doggies and spending time lazing around with Lynni under the trees.

I met Lynni Beck in December 2012 when I was desperately looking for a long term kenneling solution. None of the other kennels were able to provide the personalized care that I felt was necessary for my much loved Labrador and Spaniel. From the moment I met Lynni I knew she was the right person for the job.

She took Bailey and Jody into her heart and home and cared for them as her very own. I don't think I have ever met such a kind, caring and compassionate person toward animals, having only their very best interests at heart. If you looking for personalized, bespoke kenneling to provide the love, care and attention that your pet requires then Lynni Beck at The Four Paws Country Retreat is the right choice for you and your furmily.

I recommend them 100 percent!

Thank you my dear friend x x x

Dear Linny,

Thank you so much for taking such good care of our two little doggies whenever we are away. You have taken such great worry off our shoulders, as the love and dedication you display to all the dogs in your care, puts us totally at ease and we have a piece of mind that Max and Mia are in good hands. And they totally vouch for you too, as whenever we are approaching your house they start yelping with joy and it’s a wonderful time for them too!

I have no doubts that with the amount of love and commitment to the dogs in your care, your business will just go from strength to strength!

Four Paws Country Retreat is Baxter and Olive’s home-away-from-home! Whenever we go away, I know that Baxter and Olive are receiving heaps of love and care with extra space to play and explore! It’s kind of like leaving the kids at Granny when the parents go away - you know they are LOVED, treated with care and made to feel special. Lynni and her helpers are kind, attentive and always willing to go the extra mile to make me, and the dogs comfortable.
