View Barkley in its  full glory on Animal Academy

TVNZ came to see us some time ago when we were somewhat smaller !!!, but their Animal Academy show is always available on demand, so you can see Barkley in full swing. Enjoy!

View Clara  and Casper our new TV2 super stars

The guys from TV2 Studio 2 popped in to see what Barkley is all about - the producer is Casper's 'uncle' so he was TV top dog , but Clara did us proud being the 'talking' star!

View us now on TV1's  Close Up - website

So good to see the dogs thoroughly enjoying themselves on camera.  A shame Mark Sainsbury couldn't resist the urge to  make the daycare and grooming sound 'elite' and 'designer' - but seems TV has to have its twist.  Well we know its all about dogs having a good time , so who cares!

School Photos - and our new School Houses!

Each year we take school photo's of all the kids and each year we have used a different theme - you can see all of our current and past photos in our gallery.  However we decided that it would be more exciting and fun if we looked at a more traditional school approach and therefore have now divided all our wonderful kids into 'houses'. Each of our three Houses - Otter, Fantail and Hedgehog, have their own spirit, personality and coat of arms, and we look forward to having some fun with inter house games and competitions.

Welcome to our NEW HOME!

After a wonderful and happy 3 1/2 years in our first home we grew so big that we needed to find a new home for the kids. After many months of searching a rather wonderful opportunity to not only move just across the driveway, but also into an amazing  1350sqm freestanding, light and airy haven arose.  Not only more space for our ever growing school, but a chance to realise our dream of creating a unique 'indoor and outdoor' park. With not only  trees and platforms, treehouses and slides inside, but also a 500sqm fully fenced grass area for that extra special playtime.  We can't wait to show you more and will be posting pictures and videos over the next few weeks.  But feel free to pop in and have a look around - we have designed everything so that you the two legged clients can come in and get more involved.

Supporting PAW JUSTICE!

Sometimes you meet people who are way beyond just 'good guys', and we have had the honour of not only meeting but supporting Craig and Shaughn , the brains and paws behind this cause! We all get frustrated by the injustices thrust upon the innocent in our modern society but these guys got angry enough to decide to affect some change. Whether signing their petition for a change in the sentencing laws for cruelty to animals or buying one of their Tshirts / DVD's to raise funds for their amazing activities you can join in their crusade - we are 100% with them and behind them and we hope you are too. Visit them at or sign the petition next time you come to see us.
