At Rilten, we know how important socialisation and exercise is to your best friend. We assess the temperament, age and energy level of your pooch and find the perfect friends so your dog can romp and play till their heart’s content.

Any dogs that are more comfortable being exercised separately can be catered for with their own run. If you have more than one dog, all our kennels can house two dogs very comfortably. For any larger families, we can arrange double kennels to avoid separation.


All dogs are fed once a day on a mix of Prime 100, Blackhawk and Coprice, prepared in our spotless kitchen, all included in your boarding fee.

If your best friend is fed more than once a day, we are happy to provide additional meals at a small cost. Any fussy eaters or those on a special diet can be easily catered for. Please remember to bring any special dietary food with you, along with written instructions. Plenty of water is always available for your pet.

Dog Boarding Diamond Creek


Rilten has developed close working relationships with many Veterinary Clinics close to the kennels, with many Veterinarians boarding their pets with us. All our staff have easy access to a 24-hour clinic should your pet show any signs of being unwell.

We will contact you immediately and keep you informed of your pet’s development. If you prefer, we can contact your usual Vet, however, if this is not possible, we will make sure our vet communicates with yours. Please understand that for this service, we will ask for the costs to be reimbursed on your return.

Severely sick animals should be referred to a veterinary hospital, not a boarding kennel.

We are based in Yarrambat and near to Doreen, Diamond Creek, Eltham, Whittlesea, Mernda, Epping, Greensborough, South Morang, Bundoora, Doncaster, Templestowe.


Any pooch that has stayed with us over 7 days will receive a complementary hydrobath and brush prior to their departure. Please note that collection time is before 12.00pm.

Due to car sickness, your pet would not have received their dinner, so a light meal once home is recommended. If your doggy is feeling a little tired, this is completely normal, especially after all the socializing they have been doing.
