Welcome to Dinky Dogz

"Dinky Dogz is filling a gap in the market to provide quality daycare and boarding services for small and toy dogs. There is nothing else like this in the Wellington region."

“Guests can relax and be taken care of in a new secure purpose made thermal lined building with like sized dogs and have their own indoor pen to snuggle up in or romp around with fellow guests.”

Michelle Owner/Operator

General Information

Food supplied by Dinky Dogz is Acana ( Orijen ) which is 5/6 star rated on the dog food advisor website. Guests will be fed twice daily. Owners can bring their own food if they desire but there is no discount on rate. Please name the food with both owner and guest names. Sales of both Acana and Orijen now available onsite at Dinky dogz.

Owners are welcome to bring their own dogs bedding to make the settling in process much smoother although bean filled beds are not welcome due to potential mess.

Dinky Dogz reserves the right to NOT accept any guest that may be unsuitable due to size or of an aggressive breed. Any aggression/issues whilst in care will be reported to owner on their return and may affect any further reservations.

Guests must be up to date with their vaccinations including canine cough and supporting documents MUST be bought with you. Guests should be wormed and deflead within two weeks of boarding with Dinky Dogz and if the guest is in long term care enough flea treatment left with guest for further applications. Guests must be registered and have their own collar and lead with current registration tag to be left with the guest.

Mon – Sun: 8am – 9.30am and 4pm - 5.30pm

Inspection is most welcome but please make a mutually suitable time first. No inspections will take place between 11am and 2pm to allow guests some much needed mid day rest time.

Dinky Dogz has a strict number of guests it is allowed to operate at one time and boarding will take preference over daycare during peak times.
