Grooming Mummy’s Baby

There are some mighty pampered kitties and pooches out there. And for good reason! Often, a domestic animal such as a cat or dog takes on the role of surrogate child, spouse or best friend.

Their love is unconditional and they never answer back. They offer love and only love and listen without interrupting. In return they will be with you in times of stress or simple quiet offering silent comfort and companionship.

It is only fitting that such a much loved pet receives the best grooming available to them. After all, they share your house and home so it is important to keep their fur and skin clean and free of nasties such as dirt, mud, twigs, thorns, fleas and ticks.

The Durack Pet Motel staff members are all animal lovers. To us they are all our babies and we love nothing better than to show them how special they are.

We have a range of grooming services available designed to pamper your baby and have them glowing.

In House Grooming

Our range of pet grooming services range from a simple nail clipping all the way through to bathing and brushing out knots from their fur. We are also able to conduct fur clipping services. Whatever it is that you desire we are able to supply.

You can arrange for your baby to come to us for the day whilst you are at work, or perhaps shopping or lunching with friends.

When you are ready to return home you will be taking a beautiful clean and relaxed loved one with you.

The End of Holiday Grooming

Perhaps you may be leaving your four legged family member with us whilst you are away on a trip or holiday.

Should this be the case we are more than happy to conduct a mini or complete groom to your indulged pet so that when you return for their collection they are shining and bright and clean for their arrival home.

It does not matter if your pet is a day visitor or a long-term resident; we are able to clean them up and have them looking spiffy with our dedicated clean and care packages.

Feel free to drop in and visit with us or give us a call to discuss and book your loved one in to our doggy day spa. They will love it as much as you do.

Grooming for More than Good Looks

Regular grooming is an important part of a pet’s life. Just as we need to keep our own hair clean and trimmed, our teeth brushed and polished, pets need the same kind of attention. The importance of grooming is more about keeping your furry friend looking good; there are many health benefits too.

On top of the health benefits there is the ‘feel good’ benefit. If we are feeling poorly then we don’t feel happy. If your pet is properly taken care of and is in good health, then it will feel happy too. This will mean they can bounce, jump and play just like a happy, healthy furry family member should.

At Durack Pet Motel we want your pets to stay happy and healthy so we offer grooming services for pets that are staying in our motel or for pets that just need to be dropped off for the day to get some TLC. Here are two areas we will pay particular attention to.


Animals’ eyes can become irritated by hair in their eyes. This generally happens more often in long-haired breeds but is not impossible for short-haired breeds either. When hair gets in the eyes this can cause irritation and be quite uncomfortable. You can keep checking your pet’s eyes for any hairs lying across them. The best prevention is to keep hair out of eyes with ties and by having the hair trimmed by our caring groomer.

If your dog or cat has a problem with eye drainage then it is important to keep the hair around the eye clean as neglecting this can cause infection.


The ear canal, when constantly covered by the ears of dogs, will have no air circulation and can become warm and moist. When this happens, ear infections can occur and can be quite painful for your dog. You can help by keeping your dog’s ears clean but our professional groomer will have a steady hand and tools to keep the hair inside your dog’s ear clipped. This will allow for more air flow and cleaner ears.

Along with these at the Durack Pet Motel we will wash your pets from top to toe making them look, feel and smell great. We will also clip nails and trim any other areas where hair can become a bother, such as around the legs. As well as grooming at pet kennels you know we have the facilities to keep your pet happy for any length of time so you can drop them off and relax.

Pets Given More Than Shelter

It’s important to know that where you leave your pets they will receive love and care very much like the love and care you would give them yourself. It is natural for pet owners to feel nervous about where they are leaving their furry loved ones and a lot of this anxiety can be allayed by choosing the right pet motel.

That’s where we come in. At Durack Pet Motel we love your pets too. Our team of experienced pet lovers are here because we understand the importance of good pet care, as well as how much the animals rely on our love and attention.

We also understand that running a pet motel is not just about sticking your pet in a cage and giving them food and water. Really caring for a pet takes much more than that, so here’s a few of the extras we offer to you and your pet whilst they are in our care.


Nothing feels as good as a new haircut or a manicure, right? Well despite initial misgivings some pets have about baths, they all feel good after them too. We offer an environment like a caring doggy day care where pets are gently hydrobathed in warm water and preened to perfection.

Or if you prefer, we can just give your pet a nail clipping and a brush to remove those nasty knots. Some may protest but no animal can deny the glorious feeling of a ‘new you’.

Special needs

If a pet has special dietary requirements or medication or just needs a little extra TLC because they have nerves, don’t worry. Just talk to one of our friendly staff who will discuss these needs with you and ensure your pet gets the care that it needs.


Pets, particularly dogs, can’t go without playtime. Naturally, while it is clean and comfortable, the space they reside in while at our motel won’t be the same amount of space they enjoy at your home.

All animals are given plenty of attention including cuddles and pats as well as time to stretch their legs and play.

Pick-up and delivery

Here’s the part that will also benefit you greatly. From Monday to Saturday (excluding public holidays) we offer an air-conditioned pick-up and delivery service for your pet. This means if you don’t wish to be pressed for time or don’t have a vehicle we can do the catching and fetching for you!

We do recommend you book this service in peak periods such as school holidays as these are our busiest times.
