Hanrob Pet Hotels are a family owned and operated Australian Pet accommodation and dog Training business that has been in operation for over 30 years. Hanrob Pet Hotels own and manage six Hanrob Pet Hotel and Dog Training facilities, located in Sydney - Heathcote, Sydney Airport and Duffys Forest, Melbourne, Brisbane and now in Canberra
Hanrob’s journey started in 1981 when Hanrob CEO, Andrew Biggs mum and dad, Hannie and Bob founded Hanrob at Heathcote, on the southern outskirts of Sydney.
They had a passion for dogs and cats and a genuine concern for their welfare. They identified an opportunity to provide exceptional care for both dogs and cats whilst their owners were on holidays.
In 1981 Hannie and Bob purchased the Heathcote Facility from Hannie’s sister as they believed it was a sound business venture to own and operate their own pet boarding facility. They followed suit with the naming of their business by combining their own names, and created the name Hanrob
The property included a family home where mum and dad raised their sons Andrew and Gavin, whilst building a reputable pet boarding business.
As Hanrob grew, they added dog obedience training to the list of services. They also recruited a large network of vet agencies across Sydney and Wollongong. The purpose of the vet agencies was to build a strong referral network for pet owners whilst providing a convenient pick up and delivery point for people to drop their pets.
This turned out to be a great initiative as vets trusted Hanrob to care for their clients’ pet and then offered a convenience to pet owners that had not been experienced before.
