Rehoming dogs in Christchurch, New Zealand

Rehoming- Our services explained

Rehoming a dog is always a difficult choice for those who's dog is part of their family. Finding the right people to take over your guardianship can be difficult. You may put his image on TradeMe, and you might have the best luck and find the best home.

People rehome a dog because:

1) incompatible with the family's lifestyle
2) the family moving overseas
3) change of circumstance for the owner 4) behavioural problems - any kind of problem, except being aggressive. 

We are here to help for those who's life circumstances have changed like relocating, or taking on a business with little spare time for your dog. 

TO BE CLEAR: We are not a rehoming service of last resort. We don't rehome dogs that have behavioural problems. We just don't have the time OR space in our home to help a dog with behavioural problems. We have client dogs that stay with us, so it's IMPERATIVE that your dog is dog/people friendly. Rehoming fee: from $250.00 depending on each circumstances. 

We will come to your home and provide an assessment of your dog. After seeing your dog, seeing him/her interact with the family, getting medical information as well as behavioural information, we will either accept to rehome, and decline the rehoming.We need your dog to fit into our lives while we look for a home.

We charge a fee to the new family that will take your dog. This pays for our training, our space in our home, and our time & effort looking for the right family.

Eddie, the 7 year old poodle lived with an older gentleman. Unfortunately, he couldn't care for him because he had to go into care. More info
The most beautiful dog Kora -- One Loyal Mate, Indoor Outdoor Friend indeed dressed in Black.  

Kora would really suit a family with a yard, a kennel and an active lifestyle who have probably never had a Dog before - but for whom there is lots to learn. She is a Lab, she is smart and can be silly, she is self-cleaning but will get dirty, being wet comes naturally, and is best fed in a slow feed bowl

Zac and his brother Samson were rehomed to separate families. 

They have given joy to 2 familied

Harry, the 2.5 year old Border Collie was a delight. He came almost already trained. We would have kept him in a heartbeat, but another family is being delighted in his company.
