"We have been using Papamoa Kennels for 30 years and apart from the convenience and high standard of care our pets have received over that time from previous owners, Bruce and Tanya, along with their awesome team, have looked after Moet many times, so much so, it is his home away from home. It is very reassuring that Moet is well looked after while we are away and that "the team" love and care for him just as we do. Thanks so much to you all."

"Charley loves daycare days - he knows what day it is and starts his excitement early in the morning... first one in the house to have had breakfast, and first in the truck! DAY CARE DAY! The team at Papamoa Kennels & Cattery are amazing with him and we have no issues at all leaving him in their care, he comes home most days super exhausted and with a happy face. Bruce and Tanya are very accomodating and have helped us with a few short notice situations with ease, nothing is ever too much trouble and that is very much appreciated by us."

"We have been bringing our Rottweiler Vadah from 6 months old to socialise and exercise her during the week and sometimes in the weekends when we are away. Vadah loves coming to her second home and we always know she is very well looked after and any instructions for Vadahs care are followed. Bruce Tanya and the team are awesome to deal with and definitely recommend sending your pets to them for quality boarding and caring."

"My dog has been attending the Papamoa Kennels for the past eight years and I couldn't speak more highly of the care that she receives every single visit. Bruce and Tanya and their team are like an extended family for my dog. On the mornings that she is scheduled to attend Day Care, she is bouncing around the house as soon as you mention "Uncle Bruce." This professional team cares for your pet as if they were their own. They are also very accommodating with any special medical and/or food requirements. If you are looking for somewhere for your animal as a day care facility or something for longer term stays with people who genuinely care for your pet, Papamoa Kennels is the ideal place."

"I had the pleasure of finding Papamoa Kennels and Cattery three and a half years ago when I unexpectedly acquired a large 11 month old Mastiff/Boxer X dog who required a lot of exercise, socialisation and a firm hand. What a find Papamoa Kennels was. We travel a lot and our dog has had many trips to his favourite “resort”, including two stints lasting almost six weeks. Prior to finding Papamoa Kennels, he had had two “sleepovers” at other Kennels and never looked happy when I picked him up. These days, I get as far as the Papamoa main highway roundabout and he starts to get the shakes, run around the back seat and bark with excitement. I don’t even get so much as a face lick goodbye, he almost breaks the window out of the car to get into the dog runs. (I promise he is actually very well treated at home). It’s such a huge relief to leave my boy at the kennels knowing he is so happy. He is always in fantastic shape when I return, having been kept up to date with all his meds and well fed, exercised and loved. I can’t express enough how much this makes my holiday more enjoyable knowing he is happy. I would , and have, recommended Papamoa Kennels to every other dog owner I know who needs a home away from home for their important friend."

We have absolutely no hesitation in leaving our much loved dog Harley at the Papamoa Kennels with Bruce & Tanya - in fact it’s the only place we’ll leave him and know he’ll be well looked after.
It’s also great to be able to see pictures of Harley at the kennels while we’re away because they post them on line regularly.
Bruce and Tanya are a lovely couple to deal with and they always go that extra mile to make your dogs stay as happy and comfortable as possible.
