Here at K9 Services NZ we specialise in all things puppy and that includes Puppy HomeStay where our place is your puppy's home away from home.

We give them somewhere they can feel safe and enjoy the comfort of a family home, as well as make friends & play all day! 

This service is suited to those who don't feel comfortable leaving their puppies in traditional commercial boarding facilities, or you'd prefer they continue to get their home comforts, training maintained while you're away, we offer a very small scale, boutique boarding service.

Maximum 2 puppies at a time depending on temperament, puppies can come and stay in our fully fenced property and live as one of the family while you're away.  

Priority is given to our existing cliental that are currently enrolled in one of our Puppy Programs.

All new canine guests are required to attend a comfort stay before their stay.

This is a 24hr overnight/day care stay, which will help both your puppy and us here get to know and evaluate each other. They will spend their day socialising with our dogs.

This stay helps us assess how new puppy handles our environment, what their energy and temperament is like, and to see what dogs they will suit socialising with in the future. But most importantly, it helps your puppy get to know us and our daily routine, which helps them be able to settle in more comfortably when they come back to stay with us for a period of time.

Comfort stays are available Monday – Thursday
Dogs must arrive by 10am/3pm and be picked up 10am/3pm
