About us


Hi I'm Sharron Nicholls. the owner with the help of my husband, we are a mature active professional semi-retired couple who love the company of dogs in our home, so please feel assured that your dog(s) are in the very best of care with us. Sharron had taken 2 of her larger dogs through obedience and agility training and has been a trainer for 2 dog clubs in the Wellington area.  Also owned an animal feeding business in the past​.

All in all I bring to Watchdog boutique home-stay about 45 years experience working with different kinds of animals.

Buzz  has just spent over a week with Sharron & Lawrence and we couldn't be happier. They treated him like one of their own! Probably more spoilt than at home !! Would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a caring and loving holiday home for their special pet !

Our little dog Peanutt loves his time at Watchdog boutique home-stay. Sharron & Lawrence, we thank-you so much for your care of Peanutt and we are so pleased to have found a home away from home for him. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Sharron with our 3 Mini schnauzers & Pippi our foster dog enjoying a day at the beach

Sharron & her husband took our 2 boys in at the last minute, so thankful they did. ernest and Rupert had the BEST time and were very spoilt and well looked after ( even allowed to sleep in the bed like they do at home) big backyard to play in and nice fire to snuggle up in front of at night. Really a home away for our boys. So nice to enjoy our holiday knowing the boys were in good hands and have 2 other mini schnauzers to play with. Will definitely bring the boys back to Watchdog doggy day care.

It was so good to see how Bliss accepted your home as her foster home. Would give you 100 stars if I could and will recommend your place to ALL our friends and who ever wants a good place to give their small dogs to for a break.
