Thank you for booking at THE DAWSON LODGE

Dogs R150 per dog per day & Cats R80 per cat per day.

The balance is due prior to arrival or on the day of arrival. Please note we do not have a credit card facility.

For your dog’s wellbeing, we recommend that your pet wears a Good Behaviour/Pheromone collar which will calm your pet and assist with anxiety due to separation, noise, lightning, storms, crackers, etc. Please ensure that your animal is Frontlined or has its own tick and flea collar before checking into The Dawson Lodge. Please supply any medication prescribed by your vet and let us have correct dosage instructions.
