We know you love to spoil your furry friend. Pets become part of your family and your family members deserve the best. Luckily, the Gold Coast is full of places that will spoil your pup just as much as you will.
If you’re in Edgewater your pup will love a day at River Pet Resort & Rehab. This is truly a full-service pet resort with multiple boarding options, doggie day camps, and swimming. For those who need boarding options look no further. River Pet Resort has two canine options, a 6×4 or a 6×8 suite. IMAGE Each suite receives daily housekeeping and has an air purification system. The staff provides fun music and natural lighting during the day to encourage socializing and play and soothing music at night to help them sleep while they cozy up in their beds. They also offer single day options such as swimming and doggie day camp. Your four-legged friend will be paired into play groups based on their size and personality and given the chance to play and participate in activities. For a fun swim, your pooch will absolutely love a 30-minute session in their heated pool.
