About us

We are alone,

absolutely alone on this chance planet:

And, amid all the forms of life that surround us,

not one, excepting the dog,

has made an alliance with us.

(Maurice Maeterlinck)

As avid fans of our favorite doggy friends, let us introduce ourselves.

We are the family Bricelj – Žuželj, and since 2006 we have been actively participating in the world of dogs. The love and immeasurable joy we experience by taking care of these unconditionally affectionate creatures fills us with a sense of life. No amount of work needed to ensure the life and health of these “furry friends” is too much work. Our idyllic village counts 18 dogs and 1 cat. For the past seven years, we have been working as breeders of Boston Terriers, Chihuahuas, Japanese Chins, Pugs and Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. All our customers take good care of their pets, as the families, into which our young doggy offspring goes, are carefully selected. We also provide our customers with the possibility of returning the pet if, after some consideration, they find that they are unable to fulfill this demanding parental responsibility. We own a stud dog for all of our dog breeds; all our dogs have a pedigree, are micro chipped for permanent identification, and are under constant surveillance of the Veterinary hospital Šentjur.

We are situated in an oasis of peace and nature in the middle of the regional park Kozjanski park. This is a place where man as well as dog becomes really connected with nature and its beauty. In the midst of all this peace, we have decided to build a modern and dog friendly hotel. A dog hotel with five paws, as one might say. The hotel will be heated and provide a wide range of accommodation space, including dog kennels ranging in size from 6 m2 to 120 m2, of a closed type or with an attached run, and kennels with permanent access to its own attached run day and night. All big kennels also have shadowy areas in the lee. In order to make this a vacation your furry friend will really enjoy, we offer a special wellness program that includes bathing, shearing, care and massage. For those guests who are concerned about their dog’s health, let us say that their pets are under daily veterinary supervision of the Veterinary hospital Šentjur, with which and for which we have been working for the past 3 years. Sometimes we do stop to consider all the possible complications, since dogs are like big kids. The concern is, however, unnecessary. We created a modern hotel equipped with cameras that are designed for constant video surveillance, which enables you to connect to our network from afar and personally monitor your pet.

How to get to us? We come to you, pick up the pet ourselves and return it after the end of the stay.

Caring for canine hygiene is of utmost importance for the health of our four-legged friends. Only through regular and consistent care the real happiness, health and wellbeing of our pets can be attained. As an animal caretaker, who studied at the Vienna Academy for grooming dogs, with years of work experience, I invite you to enjoy the dog friendly care and treatment, which comprises:

  • Ear inspection and cleaning;
  • Eye examination and eye treatment;
  • Cleaning stained hair around the eyes;
  • Teeth cleaning;
  • Nail trimming;
  • Care for dog paw pads;
  • Hair care (combing, shearing and trimming);
  • Removing loose dog hair;
  • Bathing;
  • Cleaning of anal glands (only if necessary and preferably left to the vet).

Allow us to ease your worries. Entrust your beloved pet into the care of our pleasant homely five paws hotel.
