Daycare Facilities

K9 Zone is a custom designed warehouse for Dog Day Care & Grooming located at 6/22-24 McPherson St Bacchus Marsh

K9 Zone is Just three minutes from the Bacchus Marsh train station and walking distance from the growing community of Stone Hill, a new suburb being developed in Bacchus Marsh by Divine.

Dog Daycare & Grooming is fast becoming an essential services for dog owners across Victoria including people who have busy lives or work commitments that take them away from their dogs for extended periods.  K9 Zone provides an indoor park style area for play with lots of dog toys and stimulation for these very social animals. We also provide large rest areas that are totally cage free, but with secure fencing for time out.

The demand for our sort of facility is rapidly increasing for many different reasons;

  • pet owners spend thousands of dollars on new dogs so they want to make sure their pets get the best care and grooming
  • house blocks are getting smaller so there is a much greater need for dogs to be stimulated and socialised
    - a dog that doesn't get the stimulation it needs can often lead to an increase in behavioral problems
  • owners who commute to work are often putting in longer hours so dogs can be left home alone for extended periods
  • getting a dog can often be a lifestyle choice for busy couples who decide not to have children so we understand your pet is your family
  • our lives are getting more complicated with demands on time increasing, like going out for lunch or the gym, open for inspections during house sales, medical procedures and family gatherings etc.
  • and there have been worrying reports in the media of dogs getting stolen across Melbourne

Hi, I'm Jennifer Elander and I am passionate about caring for your dog. I have done my Certificate III in Animal Companionship & Animal Studies, I have a Professional Dog Grooming Certificate and training in Canine Myotherpay. I spent two years running a successful mobile dog grooming business and in that time I kept getting asked again and again why there were no dog daycare facilities in Bacchus Marsh.

K9 Zone grew from my customers needs

I found that many of my clients not only needed me to groom their dog but they also needed extended pet minding. They often used the time their dog was with me to do urgent chores. However, running a busy pet grooming service and retail shop from home meant that I was often lacking the facilities to look after additional dogs when clients were running late.

I saw a need for a quality, purpose-built facility where dogs are looked after, played with, groomed, trained and socialised - K9 Zone has all of this under one roof. 

I know your dog will get the best possible love and care at K9 Zone from people who are not just trained professionals but we are also passionate dog lovers.
