Holidays can be tricky when you’re a dog owner.  Should you organise a pet-sitter?  Send your dog to a boarding kennel?  Call in a favour with friends and family? 

 

It would be so much easier if you could just take your dog with you. After all, dogs are part of the family, dogs are the family's fur babies. You wouldn’t leave your baby at home alone, would you?

 

Revitalise Escapes founder Jo Surkitt has come up with a solution for dog-lovers and their pets: Off the Leash Doggy Wellness Retreat.

So, what is a doggie retreat? 

 Well, it isn't just for our pets, it is for their owners too.  It will allow you to take a break away from your day-to-day life to recalibrate, rejuvenate, rest and relax with your best fur buddy by your side.  It's been a crazy few years and now is the time to schedule in some well-earned self-care time for you.

This three-night Wellness Retreat for dogs and their owners is an opportunity for you to experience a transformational wellness retreat holiday for your dogs and yourself.  This is perfect for pet owners that need an escape from the city and take a break outdoors immersed in nature’s beauty. 

The Freshwater Creek Cottages are a property on a 50-acre working farm where guests have their own gorgeous cottages set in beautiful countryside Victoria has to offer whilst still being close to the ocean. Only an hour from Melbourne and at the beginning of the Great Ocean Road.

The farm animals also share their paddocks with the 60 or so kangaroos that graze freely every evening.

NOTE: This retreat is open to all people, you don't have to have a dog to come along and enjoy this wellness retreat, we are just catering for those that would like to bring there fur baby along with them.
