YoKu Farm Boarding

Who are we and Where are we?

Yo Ku Farm is located 17 kms from Port Vila, in the Rentapau area. While YoKu Farm specialises in breeding poultry and livestock, the boarding kennels are located on the same section of the property as Eden on the River. We have space and shade in abundance! Our team is on site 7 days a week and they love pampering canine guests. On hot days the dogs may be taken down to a quiet spot on the river for a swim and all dogs are shampood on the day they are due to go home, so they’re looking their best when you see them [email protected]

Our boarding policy:

All our canine guests will get around several hours of playtime a day (weather permitting). As they are pack animals, most dogs do best in a social environment and we encourage group play once we have gotten to know each dog’s character. We have kennels of different sizes to enable family pets to board together.

If your pet has a history of aggression towards others, it will require private boarding. Further, if at any time during a dog in general boarding displays aggression towards others, it will be moved to private boarding, and fees will apply.

  • Undercover kennels with a fenced courtyard.
  • Fully fenced play area .
  • Twice a day feeds with Supercoat dog biscuits.
  • A pond & river to cool off on those hot days.
