Coco-NUT’s guide to the DOGUE Country Retreat

My paws occasionally get tired of the wear and tear of life as a city dog- a concrete jungle is not the best for my complexion! To remedy my aches my humans decided to send me off for some TLC in the serene countryside of the Southern Highlands to hang out with my best bud Bon Scott!

On a sunny Friday morning we hit the highway, my favourite toys loaded, air rushing past my snout I could already smell the fun! Upon our arrival at the DOGUE Country Retreat I could barely contain my excitement- from water pools, to poochy pals, to my luxurious suite there was just so much to sniff and explore!


Whilst I won’t bore you with the incredible fun you can have chasing, sniffing and rolling around with my new-found ‘fur-friends for life’ there are just a few highlights that I cannot help but brag about:

First of all, my Marilyn Muttroe suite; the luxurious accommodation was class all the way! Elegance emanated from each corner of the room from my very own doggy couch, equipped with cushions and blankets, to the love-heart rugs and the porcelain Fifi Fleur bowls- I knew I was in canine heaven the second my paws stepped through the gate!


The late afternoon stroll down to the Vineyard Dam is an absolute must for any visitor of the Retreat! Don’t forget to pick up a pawesome new stick along the way because you are set for hours of fetch and water filled fun!

To ensure I looked my best upon my arrival home (and for cuddle maximisation purposes) I booked myself in for a groom before the ride home. The beautiful aroma of organic lavender and oatmeal shampoo was the perfect end to my perfect stay!


Time flies at the DOGUE Country Retreat because there is just too much for a single pooch to do in one stay. I just can’t wait for my humans to go on holidays so I can go back to my little piece of heaven!
