Elly has been working at Petite Paws for several years and is very skilled in all areas of animal management and is the boss when Anna gets a break.

Our Story

The idea of a specialist small dog boarding facility was developed as Anna is a small dog owner herself and understood that little inside dogs have different needs. With the importance of making them feel they are still part of a family and a home.

Petite Paws was then created and has been very successful with hundreds of happy dogs and owners. We even have some past clients who have moved cities returning for long stays from as far away as Auckland, Tauranga and Wellington, which is a great compliment!

Located on a country property, Petite Paws offers:
Park like play areas
Warm inside sleeping
Individual and double pens for sleeping and eating
