How our daily charges works

Just like a Hotel, a full day is charged regardless of arrival time, as once your beloved pet(s) are in our care it becomes a chargeable day.

All days booked must be paid for in full on arrival.



Facility standards and management practices are vetted to a high standard. All care and professional expertise will be given to your pet.

We do not accept responsibility for illness, injury , loss  or  failure of medications/supplements administered for any reason.

The owner understands that we operate a communal interactive playgroup and accepts the positive benefits and potential risks involved.

If an animal is abandoned at our Resort  i.e. not collected within 7 days after the agreed pick-up date, without any contact from the owners, our company has the right to re-home/ dispose of it however



Management reserves the right talk to your Vet in regards to any concerns with your pet/pets .

In the event of your pet requiring any veterinary attention during your absence, we will make every effort to phone you or your emergency contact number (supplied by you) to explain what is needed.

If we cannot make contact, we must reserve the right to make arrangements and any fees will be met by yourself, the pet owner.



Our hours are 8.00-10.00am & 3.00-5.00pm NOT before and certainly NOT after these times.
YOU MUST be here no later than 4.45pm to collect you pets because the kennels are preparing to be locked down for the night for everyone's safety 
If you are not going to collect your pet by 5.00pm please contact us by 4.00pm and we will prepare to board your pet overnight at & extra night charge, payable on pick-up the next day.
We work 11 hour days, 7 days a week--- from 6.30am-600pm & WILL NOT be working outside these hours.
We have dogs that bark in the night and have to get up for them also and 100 things more that we could list.
We are not responsible for the Auckland traffic, hence why we have this article online now, you are responsible for leaving earlier,  if you really want to collect you pet that night.
80% of business in the Albany area close at 5.00pm. You would not expect NOEL LEEMINGS, FARMERS ETC to open after-hours because you couldn't make it within their work hours, so don't expect us to either. Come back the next day, like you would with any other Business.
Do not phone, email or sit out the front of the property, we will not be letting you in.
If you feel you will be one of these people, please DO NOT book with us, we are busy enough.
