A farmhouse designed for dogs to play and relax

Family dogs feel most comfortable and secure in a home setting where they can sleep inside surrounded by people


Play based adventures surrounded by nature

Tired dogs are happy dogs and they love to explore the farm. We have fenced play spaces, forest walks and take trips to our local river and beaches. 


The company of other friendly family dogs

We love watching dogs make friends and playing or resting together. Inner West dogs are very well socialised and your dog might already know our other guests from the local park, walking groups or daycare. 

What do our clients have to say? 

We send our Miniature Shnauzer Neko to Paperbark Farm whenever we go away. Its so nice to know when we are away that Neko is getting a holiday of her own, exploring the forest, playing with other dogs and being throughly looked after by Rachel and her family. We really love the updates about what she has been up to. I would highly recommend Paperbark Farm

Our 6 month old puppy just got back from Paperbark Farm whilst we were overseas and we couldnt be happier with the way he was looked after. Rachel has been wonderful, making sure we had regular updates on how he was getting on as well as plenty of photos and videos of his escapades. We have already recommended Paperbark Farm to friends

Our greyhound Barry spent his holiday at Paperbark Farm and he loved it. He is such a home dog that we wernt keen on traditional kennels so Paperbark Farm was perfect for us. The pickup and drop off from our place in Balmain was so easy and convenient.
