Muddy Paws provides kennel free boarding for your dog. Muddy Paws is described as an Air B&B for dogs! We provide a loving environment where the dogs are housed in a large room attached to the rest of our house, as well as having plenty of space outdoors to run around in. My aim is to do my very best to create "a home away from home" for your dog.
The dogs staying at Muddy Paws roam in and out of their living area as they please, there are NO kennels that they are shut away in. Our exclusive treatment means that your dog will be free to do as they choose, have toys and other dogs to play with, and will receive lots of pats, cuddles and attention.
Small and elderly dogs are kept separate to bigger dogs. They have their own room and paddock to play or potter around in.
I like to play music dogs find calming and relaxing, so apart from specialised calming music for dogs Reggae will also be played (scientifically proven that dogs find Reggae relaxing!). Essential oils are dotted around to help provide a calm and relaxed environment. There is a TV and a DVD player so that movies can be played for the dogs.
The number of dogs that I choose to take for boarding is limited so that I can provide that extra special care and attention that Muddy Paws offers.
Muddy Paws caters for dogs of all ages and breeds. However, for everyone's safety and enjoyment there are certain requirements before a dog can be accepted for boarding.........
- Your dog must be completely social and non-aggressive around all dogs and all people under all circumstances.
- Male dogs must be neutered if older than 6 months.
- Your dog must not be excessive barker (this upsets our neighbours and the other dogs).
- Your dog must be fully vaccinated.
It is always a good idea to bring some of your dog's own bedding just so that they feel even more at home. If that is not possible, we do have plenty of beds and blankets.
Drop off/pick up and visiting hours are strictly 8:30-10:00am and 4:30-6:00pm.
Muddy Paws is located at 417 McLaren Falls Rd, Tauranga.

I have always struggled with anyone else looking after my animals because I'm always concerned that they won't receive the love and attention and quality care that I give them myself at home. So, it pleases me that people trust me with their own pets, knowing that I have experience of handling a very wide variety of animals and treat them all as if they were my own.
I have a background in Personal Training and Social Work. Thus, my previous forte was working with people, however I have always found solace and joy in spending time with animals. I have recently completed a Canine Behaviour and Dog Trainers Diploma and a Pet First Aid course. Furthermore, I am currently working on a diploma in Animal Reiki. Natural health is another interest of mine and I'm pleased to say that my animals are very rarely seen at the vets.
