Other Services

Vern Ryan's Pet Resort offer a range of services that you can add to your pet's stay to ensure your loved one gets the pampering, socialisation and exercise it deserves. We even offer a pick-up and drop-off service during the week.


Pick-up and Drop-off

No matter where you live, our passionate team is just a few minutes away.

We offer a pick-up service directly from your home or via one of our collection centres. This service is charged at $25 each way and is subject to availability - further details and a list of our collection centres are shown below.

Book A Pick-Up

We want to take the stress out of going away! So we have partnered with a range of vets, groomers and day care centres to take the stress out of going away. No matter where you live, a Vern Ryan’s Pet Resort collection centre is only moments away. We have collection centres spread across the greater Melbourne and Geelong region and run our collection service from Monday to Friday. 

To utilise a collection centre you need to drop your pet off at the centre before 10:00am. When you return from your holiday you will need to pick your pet up from the centre after 3:00pm. If you want your pet to be collected from your home we require you to be there to meet us.

Customers are welcome to drop off their pets and inspect our resort in person as it is located at 3332 Geelong-Bacchus Marsh Rd, Balliang East.

      Super Playtime

      Dogs get daily exercise included in their stay, however if you really want to amp up the fun, we recommend adding Super Playtime sessions to their stay. It provides guests with the opportunity to stretch their legs in one of our expansive on-site exercise yard for an extended period and socialise with the other guests at the dog hotel. 

      Dogs are temperament tested for suitability prior to participation in Super Playtime
