I find you?
|Valroa is situated
at 183 Valley Road, Paraparaumu. In a rather tranquil setting well
away from highways and close neighbours. Barking dogs are not a problem
If you are travelling north, turn right at the traffic lights,right
again and then left into Ruapehu Street. Follow Ruapehu Street to
its end where it runs into Valley Road.
The AA signs are also a help
all the way along the route, follow the signs to the golf course or
cemetery, both of which are in Valley Road. Valroa is just 600 metres
south of the Kapiti Golf Course.

have a current vaccination certificate. If you are not sure what that
entails, ask your vet, just tell him that your pet is going to kennels,
he'll know what you need.
If your pet does require vaccinating, please have this done at least
2 weeks prior to coming in to allow the vaccination to take effect,
and of course bring the certificate with you as we need to view it.
|How and when
is my dog exercised?
|Dogs are exercised
morning and night in large grass yards where they can have a good
run around, but are kept seperate so shy and nervous dogs can exercise
in peace, (see the dog in the next yard, but not have any contact
except perhaps a sniff and a bark through the wire)!!!
of accomodation do you provide?
|All pens have
wooden beds off the floor and we welcome people bringing their animals
dog basket, special blanket or bedding and toys from home.
We can also make arrangements for special bedding for geriatric and
arthritic dogs as well.
NO CIRCUMSTANCES ARE DOGS DOUBLED UP.
All dogs are inside
and have their own individual accomodation. The pens have solid
walls between, giving resident pooches their own space free from
being hassled by noisier, aggressive and less house proud neighbours.
We have a range of different sized pens enabling owners with two
or more dogs to have them housed together if so desired

and special arrangements can be made.
word from Gill (the owner)
these kennels for the past 30 years I can honestly say I've never
had a dog I couldn't get round and make a friend of, either by bribery
with food or by patience and kindness, it just takes a little empathy!
Although we do our best to make the dogs happy, kennels will never
be home and we understand that, but all dogs will respond sooner or
later to personal attention. I seldom if ever have dogs that will
not eat and my theory is if you lookafter them mentally and physically
they will be ok. Very occasionally someone won't eat and of course
this calls for trying different types of food and lots of encouragement.
This works 99% of the time. We are happy for you to come look around
and meet us, just as long as you do so when we are open. Finally to
all you worried owners out there, I guarantee you the stay of your
pet will be worse for you than your dog.
