Lost and found dogs
If you've lost or found a dog, please get in touch with us.
You can also contact the SPCA, use the Lost Pet NZ website or check out Trade Me.
Note: Under Level 2 restrictions we are currently unable to offer dog boarding at either our Seaview or Moa Point facilities. We will update the website when this changes.
We offer dog boarding services to all breeds at our Seaview and Moa Point for long or short term stays. Each dog gets their own space and kennel and is cared for by experienced staff. Please note that boarding spaces are limited.
We're closed on Sundays and public holidays. If you'd like to use our dog boarding services you'll need to arrange drop off and pick up around these dates.
You can make a booking at either location by completing our online dog boarding booking form, calling Moa Point on 04 388 8213 or Seaview on 04 570 6666.

Exercising your dog
If you're taking your dog out in public it’s your responsibility to clean up after it. If you're in a public place, your dog needs to be on a lead.
If you're in a designated dog exercise area, your dog doesn’t need to be on a lead. It does need to be under control and you are required to carry a leash.
View the dog exercise areas to find out where you can and can't exercise your dog.
Safety around dogs
Our education officers talk to groups such as Police, postal services and community groups on keeping safe when dogs are around. Organisations can book into our Workplace dog bite prevention programme online.
Dog safety for children
We also visit schools, playcentres, kindergartens and school holiday programmes to teach children about how to keep themselves safe around dogs. We can bring a dog into the classroom so that children can practise safe handling.
Book online now for our dog safety education programme for preschool or primary school.
