Our home, kennels and shop are situated in a small country community in the Far North of the North Island New Zealand. We moved up from the big smoke (Auckland) in 1990. Nothing quite beats quiet country living and space for the skin and fur kids
I have been involved with breeding, showing and rescuing animals for most of my life.
We opened the Boarding Kennels 2000, this is a purpose designed and built establishment for looking after dogs, designed by a family that have worked with dogs our entire lives so know what their needs are.
Tot cottage opened in 2017 setting this up for all the little Tots they have their own play area complete with tunnel and slide! Plus a covered in sun room with outside bed and seating The cottage is heated and has music for entertainment. Has its own doggy door so on those cold days they can keep cosy inside the choice is theirs.
Family cabin self contained and heated, large deck for sun lounging, complete with dog door leading to yard this is a great area for a larger family or dogs with special needs.
Homestays: We welcome your fur kids to stay in the house with us this is great for older dogs or smaller pampered pooches. There is a purpose design bedroom for dogs recovering from surgery or older dogs who can't make stairs it has a mobility ramp out into a secured yard and play area.
We offer farm walks with swims for dogs that are needing that little big extra exercise.
So as you can see we cater for all dogs needs, we have strived to make every dog that stays here, have a holiday which is fun and enjoyable, so they can't wait to come back
Once they have stayed at Melka Kennels there is no turning back
We have a shop where we sell raw pet food check out our range on site
