WELLBEING DAY OUT (8-10 doggy guests per day) 

“Well Being Days Out” have gone from strength to strength. Furry guests who have attended have gained individual confidence, developed friendships, learnt skills to improve social interaction and had a great time. Being part of “The Pack” is a new and valuable experience for many dogs. For the team at The Doggery the Well Being Days Out offer the opportunity to develop the personal relationship with each dog in a different setting,

The Rules: The visiting WBDO dog/s must be a client of The Doggery and have previously stayed here to ensure we have had time to assess their suitability for outdoor adventures.

Bookings for Adventures: Please call or TXT our Staff Phone on the following number: 027 693 6447 or call Cecilia on 0274311877 to join up on our adventure days. Thereafter we will send a txt message for each allocated day to check attendance for weekly, fortnightly or monthly attendance. Please reply with YEAH! or NAH!

How these days run: Collection from home early in morning and return in evening between 4.30 pm & 6.00 pm. During the day the fur kids get to play on the farm, visit a beach for water sports or experience on one of our exclusive forest hikes. At the end of the day the kids are bathed and returned home tired out = HAPPY BALANCED DOGS.

Due to the high demand for The Doggery’s “special needs” care services and our limited capacity of 8 dogs we recommend owners book well in advance for Easter Holidays, School Holidays – April, July & September and the Christmas & New Year holidays.
The minimum stay over these peak periods will be 7 nights’ accommodation. In addition, the months of June, July, August & September have proven to be busy with long-term staying guests – it is necessary to book well in advance for these long-planned vacations.

A PEAK PERIOD ADDITIONAL CHARGE has been introduced to cover for staffing and overhead costs - $20.00 inc GST per day


The Doggery has a commitment to ensuring there is always one kennel space daily available for high needs referrals from the Veterinary Surgical Aoteoroa (VSA). We also have cases referred from Animal Referral Centre (Albany). At times, due to the high level of care required and our commitment to their recovery process, stays can be extended beyond booking dates. As a result, our numbers will fluctuate to accommodate for these situations and other genuine family emergency situations for existing clients of The Doggery. Health & Safety are of priority and we do not wish to be compromised under any circumstances.


*In the event your pet requires Veterinary Treatment when in our care The Doggery will pay up to
$1500.00 for initial veterinary treatment and this to be repaid via invoice and thereafter the owners will have to provide credit card details to the veterinary practice for payment directly in excess if this amount. In the event of an emergency owners would be contacted immediately to notify of the situation.
