About Christine

My partner David and I have been resident in New Zealand for 22 years, 16 of which were spent with our two beloved Labrador siblings who are sadly no longer with us. Back in the UK we had two Labs, and David has had a dog in his family since he was 5 years old. David also used to train gun dogs in the UK. We both adore dogs large and small whatever the breed and are at our most happiest amongst them.

Whilst considering having another dog we have looked around the Waikato area for dog sitting and boarding services that would be available if ever we needed them. It seems to be a very expensive service and we thought we would like to offer something ourselves that could be more affordable for people. It is a two-way street, we get to enjoy the company of wonderful dogs and owners get to enjoy time away from their beloved pooch at an affordable cost knowing that they are in safe hands.

We still have the car we used to transport our 'girls' about in so we can take dogs up to Tills Lookout in Hamilton for walks away from the streets and cars, over to the beach at Raglan, walks by the river etc. Our garden is fully fenced and large enough for dogs and puppies to runabout and have fun.

We will only board fully vaccinated dogs and puppies.

We would love to help you enjoy a stress free time away from your loved one so please get in touch for further discussion about you and your dogs needs.

Please note that we are also available to board Rabbits. 

NOTE. Having been Pawshake Sitters for a year now (August 2023) we would like to donate some of the fee towards some of the many dog rescues in New Zealand. As such we contacted Pawshake and asked if $5 of the sitter/boarding fee can be exempt from Pawshake's percentage. It cannot but they are happy for us to ask clients to donate $5 cash per day for each session.

Can't fault anything with Yarras stay. Christine and David go out of their way to spoil our 'little' girl. She certainly makes herself quite at home. Thanks again for everything.

First over night stay for Ted! We were kept updated with messages, videos and photos. Christine & David are always happy to see Ted and Ted is super excited to be dropped off at their house.
