What we're about

Down with Dogs is an outdoor doggy daycare located on a 70 acre section of land in Makara, Wellington. We have a huge ¼ acre fenced off yard for your dogs to socialise, relax and play.

We teach loose lead walking, how to walk nicely in a pack, impulse control and staying calm in distracting environments.

What we offer

Dogs are picked up from home between 7.30 am and 10 am and are transported to the yard in Makara. They stay there for 3.5 hours where they socialise, play, and relax in the yard. We also take the dogs on a pack walk each day to explore the 70 acres of land that's on offer.

Dogs are then dropped back home between 1.30pm and 3.30pm. Dogs are away from home from between 4 and 6 hours due to transit time. The daily rate is $55 per day.

As I sit down to work at a computer it is so wonderful to think that Peggy spends her day outside in amongst wood chip, hay bales and even an old bath.
