Boom Rock Dogs

Adventure walks

We'll explore great beaches, parks and bush walks around Wellington and Lower Hutt.

With a maximum of 6 dogs in the pack, and our experienced dog handlers your dog will get lots of special attention and form a close bond with the other dogs. 

We operate whatever the weather. Please provide a raincoat if your dog would rather stay dry (or you'd like them to stay a little cleaner!). 

Coats that cover the chest and under the tummy, are lightweight, and comfortable to run in are perfect - we recommend something like RuffWear's Sun Shower jacket - - available from Ruffwear and Amazon 

Getting there and back

We pick up Lower Hutt dogs from Lower Hutt and Wellington. Please get in touch to find out which days we are in your area.

We’re open Monday to Friday. We’ll collect your dog from your home, garden or workplace between 10am - 11am and return them between 12pm-1pm. If you're going to be away when we come to collect or drop your dog off, we can easily make access arrangements.

Our van is custom fitted with cages, and with a raised floor your dog can take in the view while we pick up their buddies and drive to our walking spot.

Prices, invoices & cancellations

It costs $39 per day, which includes our pick up and drop home service. As standard we offer a 10% discount for dogs attending 3+ days per week. 

We invoice at the end of each month, and are terms of payment are within 7 days of the invoice, with all collection costs recoverable.

Please let us know if you are going away or your dog is unable to attend. We have a waitlist of casual dogs that would love to have the odd day out. We require 24 hours minimum notice of a cancellation - otherwise the session will be included on your invoice.

Breed and behaviour

Basically if you can take your dog to a family BBQ or to socialise at the beach or dog park then they're ideal for Boom Rock Dogs.

Your dog will need to be social (they will be sharing a cage in the dog van), and have basic obedience skills such as sit and come. We take a range of sizes and breeds and encourage (and expect) them all to mix with safe, social play.

Most of the dogs walk off-leash - but we're happy to walk your dog on-leash if that's a better option.

We don't take Pitbulls, Mastiffs, full Staffies, Rotweillers or any fighting breeds. Aggressive or dominant dogs are unfortunately not suited to Boom Rock Dogs. 


Male dogs aged over 8 months must be neutered, and un-speyed females kept at home while on heat.

All dogs must be vaccinated for Parvo, Distemper, Hepatitis and Kennel Cough. If your dog is receiving a long term vaccination such as DHP, please note you will still need an annual booster shot for Kennel Cough. Your dog should also be flea-treated regularly, and should ideally be registered with your local council.

To book a Boom Rock Dogs adventure for your dog ......

It's really simple. Just give us a call, or send us a text or email. We'll chat about your dogs requirements and arrange a time to catch up to get your dog booked in.

You can book regular days each week, or casually as required (dependant on availability).
