The kennels were first operated in the 1930 -1950s in Takapuna, located on the corner of Wairau Road and Tristam Avenue.
Takapuna was becoming a City and the noise complaints became an issue for the kennels, so they were re-located to " Paremoremo Road" now renamed " The Avenue"

The kennels in the 1940s-1960s was a Dachshund breeding kennel as well as the local boarding kennel for the North Shore.
In the 1980s the Cattery was built, housing 32 cats

The kennels have been used for the rescue and housing of Racing Greyhounds, both racing and ex-racing until they could find a loving home.

We are the 'ONLY' existing boarding kennels on the North Shore, operating now in " The Avenue"" for over 60 years and we fully socialise our dogs together for a fun stay. They are also the only farm style kennels with outdoor paddocks, that are within minutes of a Mega City within Auckland, so they are very precious. 

We are walking distance to Albany Mega Centre and the property looks down on Massey University & North Harbour Stadium with easy Motorway access.
Set on 2 acres of beautiful rural land on a warm north facing property.

We have been Breeders of English Staffordshire Bull Terriers for 19 years and since 2010 became Breeders./Exhibitors of Japanese Spitz dogs, winning numerous awards in New Zealand. We also own & exhibit the amazing French Bulldog, a real treasure of a breed & full of personality.
