Directly servicing the Hamilton, Ascot and Clayfield diggs but extending to the CBD and Brisbane Northside,The Campus located in Eagle Farm, is the the first and flagship campus. This behemoth will more than compete with your local suburbia dog park and is one of the very few doggy daycare locations that are anywhere near our 1000m2 site.
Size absolutely matters. No question. Dogs need space to stretch their legs and zoom at full noise wherever they choose. The campus is designed with the perfect balance of engaging habitats and open plains to meet every energy level’s needs. The founders often bring their 3 Siberian Huskies to work as team dogs and, if you have ever spent enough time with this terrifyingly energetic breed, you will understand, the Campus zones are designed to drain their battery and will do so with any breed. We guarantee it.
Campus Fit Out
Like every Wolfhouse, the Campus the fitout is unique and wild, blending the industrial backdrop with with wildness of nature. We want to take our wolves back into the wild but still have complete control over the environment. Control of the elements is crucial for a clean, adaptable and dog friendly campus. We use natural elements where we can such as clean and recycled, filtered water for the plunge pool, local mountain rocks and river stones mixed with the pine and hardwood timber. The foliage however is 100% artificial. This is important to eliminate toxins and allergies born from local and common plants and trees. Perfect for those puppers that yearn for the calling of the wild without the threat of health issues. The campus is built to be completely modular which means we can keep it fresh and adapt the campus to our needs quickly and simply if needed.
As an output of the Wolfhouse Initiation Ritual, your wolf will be accepted into one of the 3 core territories:
This territory is the height of high class society. If your treasured pupper is accepted with this revered community, he or she will enjoy leather bound recliners, beds made for royalty, soft dancing lighting, clean rugged flooring and the very finest in canine art, literature and a daily updated musical banquet. These scholars love to share their views with others who are as so inclined, relaxing and lounging about whilst frequenting short but spirited playful engagements.
The smallest of the core territories The Library is a place for rest, recovery and relaxation. It is utilised best for part of the day where your doggo’s energy is at it’s lowest. This is an exclusive area that is not open for all of the Wolfhouse family, only those who are compatible with other philosophers of similar kind.
Our most engaging territory Riverstone Pass delivers on the true essence of the wild. This mid sized slice of paradise is our most engaging and interactive space. It is packed full of elements sure to challenge the brightest doggo whilst still being physically demanding and a feast for the senses. It includes the extraordinary Ball Tent which is truly a ball haven, the Scents of the World Signpost, a suspended wooden rope bridge, tee-pee and tunnels with the aptly named Riverstone stream flowing through the centre, bordered by mountain rock and forested with trees.
Riverstone Pass is available for all of our dogs throughout a full day of care. This territory has some unique elements that many of our puppers imply can’t live without. It is a balanced zone with both rest areas and open areas for wolves of all energy requirements, bar the most intensive energy demanding doggos.
This is the largest territory on campus, more than twice the size of any of the others. There is so much going on that it is a genuine wilderness; more than just one visit is needed to solve the mysteries of this space. Your pup will harness a pioneer’s sense of exploration and adventure and take full advantage of the wide and open meadow to frolic and play through, scale the alps of Mt. Wolfhouse, explore our most wild and challenging X-Elemental obstacle course, become acquainted with the scents of predators and prey from around the world, then crash in forest beds under the shade of the towering pine tree forest.
This territory is another exclusive part of the campus, but most of our doggos get to experience it regardless. Super high energy types and giant wolves get to burn their energy mentally and physically throughout the zone as it is much more about high octane adventures than rest. However, like all of our core territories a recovery space is maintained throughout the day for when energy is running low.
This territory is for water lovers. Whilst consent is required to bathe in our spring, once given it opens a door that can never be closed. Its a human and doggo fav and the only territory that we will have to use our most conniving influencing techniques to get them back out. Waterfall Springs is our water zone designed for cooling and introducing dogs to the water. It is a closed zone only opened at certain points during the day. It is also used heavily in the rehabilitation process to build trust and confidence between dog and human. The internal stairs are key in making this zone available for all shapes, sizes and confidence levels to ensure Wolfhouse caters for paws wet only to swimming, duck diving and everything in between!
As part of our absolute dedication to our most important charge being safety, the Solitude Den is a space void of all loose dogs. This is an important space for those dogs on the road to rehabilitation as it allows us to teach and expose the dogs at their own pace and then retreat to a secure and protected ‘den’ that is all their own. This territory is also useful for one on one’s, family catch ups and the introduction of unusual stimuli with a single dog in a 100% controlled environment devoid of all stimuli that could trigger instinctual drives such as their prey drive, pack drive or defensive drive. This ensures that the dogs that need this space are is able to completely relax whilst they are recovering for the next step in their rehabilitation process.
Wolfhurst 500 Raceway
A legend is born everyday on the track as this territory is strictly for those puppers who can out run time itself. This territory runs down the facility on the perimeter and is designed for all dogs to do what comes naturally… RUN… as fast as they can! Puppers of all shapes and sizes have a crack and the leaderboard is updated every day with bragging rights on display for any throw downs track side.
This territory for those with a desire to go fast, real fast. It is another zone that is only opened to specific dogs during key times in the day dictated by temperature. If your pupper needs the extra room to sprint, this is the place The Wolfhouse Team is always in control of race speed to ensure that each pup is safely running to their hearts desire!
