Fur Kids offers a boutique, intimate, warm and inviting place for dogs to socialise.
We provide weekday care on over an acre of land on the outskirts of Alexandra, Central Otago.
We pride ourselves on our small, intimate size and being able to form a relationship and bond with you, their owner. When you join one of our packs, both you and your dog join our extended family.
Our generous play park is securely rabbit & deer fenced with double airlocks and boasts plenty of trees for shade from the hot Central Otago sun. We also have a large outdoor shelter, sprinklers and a kiddie’s pool to play in over Summer.
Our indoor facility is fully climate controlled with crates for our dogs to lie in on the hot or cold days. We also have a large flat screen TV for movie viewings when it’s too hot, wet or cold outside. Our homemade dog treats are a complimentary extra.
At Fur Kids, we have chosen to focus on being better at what we do – rather than being bigger, which is why our pack numbers are limited. This is not only safer, but allows us to bring you more value, improving our service at every level.
Our day-care dogs are proudly free-range. We don’t cage, kennel or keep dogs tied up at Fur Kids because we believe that they are at day-care to have fun and socialise, not to be restricted during their time with us. We play with our dogs, every day. Constantly researching the latest in international canine enrichment trends means that we can employ different play techniques with our dogs, enriching and stimulating their minds. We believe true value lies in your dog being not only physically exhausted at the end of their day, but also well socialised and mentally drained, too.
Finally, we are committed to providing day-care in the most sustainable, environmentally friendly manner possible. We make a lot of our own toys from recycled items, sustainably make our own dog treats and we don't put our dog's waste in landfill like other day-cares and kennels. We compost ALL of our dog's waste on site and use it to feed and nurture our ornamental trees. The good news is -
If We Can Do It - So Can You!
We also offer a variety of courses, events and information evenings to the wider community, including our flagship 'Puppy Foundations' 6-week intensive training course.
