About Chris

Nicola and I have had cats & dogs forever and love having them in our lives. You can be assured that your pet will be treated as part of our family during his/her stay here.

We can safely & gently administer any meds your dog maybe on during his/her time here. I’ve done voluntary animal welfare work overseas working with dogs in the Phillipines, dogs, horses & camels in Egypt, horses in India & Fiji.

We have 1 senior dog Ella our mixed-breed rescue dog aged 11 & 2 younger neutered males both aged 1.

Also have a rescue cat, 4 horses & rescue chickens. We are located just off Kaipara Coast Highway (SH16) north of Kaukapakapa 5 minutes from Gibbs's Farm, perfect if you're heading away up north and want to take the coastal road to avoid traffic on SH1. Our 2.6ha property has deer fencing all round & 2 gates before the driveway so nice & secure. You can feel the serenity :-)

Visiting pets must be neutered (except for dogs not old enough to be) & have their vaccination status up to date.

Daily exercise in our well fenced paddocks and walks in the nearby forest is provided.

Our animal first aid kit is extensive & well stocked. We have an excellent working relationship with several veterinary clinics in the event that their services are required.

Our customer reviews speak for themselves. We look forward to caring for your special friend while you're away.

When enquiring about dates for your dog & we confirm, then you need to confirm the booking.

Unconfirmed bookings run the risk of missing out if another person confirms those dates ahead of you.

Rates are per day or part thereof. I.e Dogs to be collected before midday or another days boarding will be due

Please contact us 2 days prior to your arrival to arrange drop off time.

Our little dog loves going to stay at Chris' place and always comes home exhausted from playing with the other doggies.
