Above & Beyond Dog Training & Rehabilitation offer a superior dog boarding experience for all breeds of dog no matter size or shape. Nestled in beautiful country acreage at Tarampa, our fully insulated, secure kennels provide your best friend the best alternative to being with you at home. We cater for both long-term and short-term visits and are able to provide accredited NDTF training and/or dog rehabilitation/behavior issue services for your dog while they are boarded with us. All kennels are well ventilated, private, secure indoor/outdoor runs with constant access, individual exercise areas.
Cleanliness is of the utmost importance to us and all areas are meticulously maintained, and dogs are toileted on a regular basis from 6am to 8pm daily. Each of our canine guests gets fed twice daily and exercised regularly throughout the day in large outdoor grass exercise runs with an additional 3 secure outside pens we use in rotation on sunny days. When the weather gets too warm we cool our dog kennels with wall mounted fans, use essential oils burners to help ease nerves during bad storms, and the entire building is insulated to provide the perfect environment year round for your dogs holiday.
We have our own heated hydrobath, and also offer a nail trimming and coat maintenance service.
Every dog must be current with their C5 vaccination (last 12 months) and on worming medication
EXERCISE & PLAYTIME
Your dog will be kept physically active and mentally stimulated during their boarding with us.
DIET & NUTRITION
We believe a dogs diet is paramount to their health, and serve premium food as well as special diets
Your pooch will have their own individual quality trampoline bed and clean washed bedding to sleep on while they listen to music we pipe in softly to help calm and soothe. Of course, the daily healthy doggy treats we hand out don’t hurt either, and if you are missing your mate – you can buy extra treats and toys in our shop for us to give them.
We also offer a heated hydrobath and can trim your dog’s nails at an extra cost. There is no extra charge for dogs that require medication and your pet’s health is monitored very closely. Careful attention is given each day to ensure all dogs are in good physical and mental health, with plenty of affection and fun thrown in free. Special dietary needs can also be catered for.
Contact Above & Beyond Dog Training & Rehabilitation today to book your dogs accommodation, ask any questions you may have, and be reassured we know dogs and dog training.

Live-in Dog Training
Sometimes the best way to get the jump on your dog’s training is to have them stay with us while they learn the fundamental manners and obedience in a structured environment. The training areas are based on real-life situations and interactions that are fully monitored and safe for your dog to learn socialization and discipline in a fun, consistent way. This 21-day program is great for dog owners that are having problems with initial training, are short on time or who are overwhelmed at the task and need some help. Also, a great opportunity to make the most of your dogs holiday boarding time. Each dog is given special attention, affection and plenty of rewards to make the process as enjoyable as possible. Every dog has basic training around non-reactive dogs, in fenced areas to achieve success at sit, stay, come (here), loose leash walking and duration (mat training). Each day has free time and play-time included. Visit the training page or contact us to find out more.
Cathy is a great trainer! She helped us with a few little issues we had with Bear. We no longer have a dog that pulls on the lead and will sit on command when we are out walking. She is a wealth of knowledge and her follow up is fantastic. You can tell she really loves what she does and cares for the dogs. We highly recommend Cathy to anyone! Once again thanks for all your time!

From the first 2.5 hour home session, Huxley and I have been going full steam ahead. Without your help Cathy, I wouldn't have been able to leave him outside with my aviaries without him jumping on them. Who knew a can of air would change everything. Then to complete your 6 week basic obedience course has changed us both. I have more confidence in him and he has more confidence in himself. We still have a way to go with some fears but we are 100% better than those first months. I can't thank you enough and will be recommending you to everyone. Thanks again!!

Cathy was amazing at working out what our dogs needed from us and how we could fit it into what our schedules allowed. Although we can be slack at times and we have a long way to go, today Flash went to the markets and that is something we never would have even dreamed about before. We are more confident handling them, and they are more confident in themselves. Excited about where training will take us in the future if we've already come so far.

I can’t put into words how much Cathy at Above & Beyond has helped out our family! This is truly an amazing business, and the results speak for themselves. I would highly recommend A&B to anyone who has a dog. We have done them all - home visits, confidence building class, dog obedience level 1 and now Intermediate. 1 year ago this would never have been possible as our dog was extremely reactive. We have gone from being a football field away from everyone and anything that moves to being able to sit/stand calmly while participating in a group obedience class. If you’re having any issues with your dog, or just want to strengthen the bond with your dog, or perhaps give obedience a go? Then give this company a call. Thank you Cathy you definitely go Above & Beyond!!!

We can only strongly recommend Cathy and her team! When we started, we had two highly reactive rescue dogs. With her advice, so much has already changed for the better! Now they are obedient, far less reactive, much calmer and they are getting more and more responsive. With the training, I’ve also learned a lot about myself. We still have a long way to go, but life with our dogs is so much nicer, happier and relaxed now and we couldn’t be more grateful for all the advice given.

Firstly, I would like to say Cathy & Andrea saved Axel! We were at our wits end and this was the last effort to keep our boy. White knuckle love and no boundaries had led to a very fearful and anxious dog. It’s not easy to be told you have caused your dog so much stress by loving him too much! The weeks prior to Axel going to Cathy’s, I was a prisoner in my own home. I would not leave the house or would have a family member dog sit, as Axel’s separation anxiety had got so severe. He was escaping and injuring himself, or damaging the inside of our home. 5 weeks with Cathy and now 2 weeks home for Axel and all I can say is, wow! We have seen nothing but improvements each and every day. Axel now knows how to cope on his own, he is crate trained, knows how to use his senses which he did not previously, has boundaries in place and most importantly he is HAPPY! I have now gone back to a normal functioning life and am not in fear of leaving my own home. We now return home to a relaxed, sleeping dog who does not act as though we have been gone for 55 years! Cathy & Andrea spent endless hours transforming Axel. It is 110% clear that these wonderful ladies do this for the pure love of dogs and to educate owners too! We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us, the reality is, our family could have been 1 doggy member short if it wasn’t for you both. Forever grateful - Christie, Jesse & Axel ?
