Zaminka Dog Motels
ZAMINKA DOG MOTELS - The Best Choice of Dog Boarding for your Special Four Legged Family Member!! Dogs come from far and wide to stay in our first class dog accommodation and have been doing so since 1993.

Zaminka Dog Motels are a family owned business and have a proud reputation for providing excellent service to their boarding guests. Gary & Lyn opened in 1993 and have since been joined by son Ryan and daughter Raana, who have spent their entire lives with animals of all kinds, especially our own award winning Samoyeds. We designed our facilities to be the kind of place we'd like to take our own dogs to. Our objective is to ensure your dog/s can enjoy their holiday with us whilst you are away enjoying yours. 

Our friendly and experienced staff look forward to providing a comfortable, warm and stress free environment for your pet’s enjoyable stay. Whether it is just for a weekend, or long term, we know just how to care, love and pamper your pet. We welcome visits to view our facilities. Call by anytime during opening hours to take a look at our wonderful set up, we're sure you will be impressed and your dog/s will be too!

Pop by and view our large grassy areas where pets run and play, you might get to see the small guests playing when you arrive...and happily yapping their greetings to you!

We are conveniently located just north of Te Horo on State Highway 1, only 1 hours drive from Wellington City.

There is always someone on site 24 hours per day.
