•About Us•

We have owned, shown, and bred dogs successfully for over 38 years. In 2013 we decided that as so many people asked us to care for their dogs while they were away, we would sell our lovely Manawatu home and buy boarding kennels. 
Our main criteria was that it had to be good enough that we would leave our own beloved Dobermanns there. After over a year of searching for an establishment that met our standards of security, safety, and with a home that had potential to develop, we found Kapiti Kennels and decided that it ticked all the right boxes. 
We strive to provide a well staffed, safe, and secure environment with the highest quality food for your dogs stay with us.
