Free Meet & Greet

Hi I'm Sharron the owner of Watchdog Boutique Home-stay, I invite you to come and take a look around our Masterton home and grounds, then lets sit comfortably in our lounge and talk about what service you'd like and how I can be of help.

Your dog(s) is very welcome to come along with you as well.

All dogs must be fully vaccinated and have kennel cough before entering our property, this is as much for your dogs safety as any other dogs in our care.

 A Play-Date

We are not a Kennel, your dog isn't put into any type of cage at all. This is a boutique home-stay with services in Play-dates, Over-night. & Holiday-Stays. Your dog(s) will be in a comfortable home environment where they can openly play with other dogs on our fully high fenced property. We have 2 play areas, paddling pools and a good sized swimming pool for any of those dogs that like swimming in the summer months. No dog is ever left on its own, they are  with me (Sharron) or my husband, the back door is left open so they have the freedom of coming inside or out side as they wish.

I think my boutique home-stay is a good idea, if you have a busy lifestyle and either want your dog looked after on a regular basis or for a few hours a day, it's a great way for them to socalise and to understand what it means to be part of a pack, far better than being left at home alone. 

We have 4 active Miniature Schnauzers Bailey, Gingin, Heidi & now my rescue dog Pipi, who can't wait to have other mates to play with.

Drop -off between 8.30-10am.     Pick-up between 4.30-6pm.

Puppy Class


This is a critical period for puppy's socialisation before problems set in. During this time, your puppy's personally and traits are formed. Fear can become more ingrained, so during this time positive experiences are very important for a puppy to grown up to be a well adjusted dog. It's not easy to provide the right type of socialisation for your pup by yourself, a good start is (puppy classes). then coming to our "Play Dates" 1 or 2 times a week, where your puppy will learn what it means to be part of a pack and not only get basic training from Sharron, but also from the more mature dogs we have here. We only take puppies from 4 months old, once they have had all there vaccinations and kennel cough.
