Boom Rock Dogs
The latest offering by Boom Rock Dogs - welcome to Nature Park! - our beautiful interactive park designed just for dogs.
An action packed full day awaits dogs that love to work and explore - dig for hidden treasures in the sandpit, tennis ball challenges galore, test your skills on the obstacle course. And then of course there's mega Zoomies through the tunnels and playing Hide'n'Seek with your mates.
For those dogs who are a little more reserved they can hang out with the team while they do odd jobs and maintain the gardens. Plenty of cuddles and reassurance available if needed!
Coverage areas and pickup
We cover Wellington through to Plimmerton.
We’re open Monday to Friday, closed all weekend and public holidays. We’ll collect your dog for free from your home, garden or workplace between 8am - 10am and return them between 3pm – 5pm.
If you're going to be away when we come to collect or drop your dog off, we can easily make access arrangements.
We operate whatever the weather. so you might want to invest in a dog jacket if your dog has a thin coat or fur that stays wet once it gets wet.
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 - https://ruffwear.com/products/sun-shower-dog-raincoat - available from Ruffwear and Amazon.

Breed, age and behaviour
We take medium size dogs and upwards at Nature Park
Nature Park is particularly perfect for hounds, gun dogs and working breeds that need mental stimulation as well as exercise - Spaniels, Retrievers, Bassetts, Beagles, Terriers, Corgis, Vallhunds, and Border Collies will love it, along with standard Dachshunds, and medium+ sized Schnauzers, Poodles and Oodles.
Larger breed pups (eg: Labradors, Retrievers) can also join in the fun until they are old enough to graduate to Boom Rock Farm. It's also a great space for mobility restricted or elderly dogs.
We don't take Pitbulls, Mastiffs, Staffies, Rottweilers, Bull Terriers, Dogue De Bordeaux, Ridgebacks, Shar Pei, Dobermans, German Shepherds. Please don't be offended - from our years of experience we find that these breeds just don't work in a busy, enclosed space with lots of other dogs. Aggressive or dominant dogs are unfortunately not suited to Boom Rock Dogs Nature Park. Due to noise restrictions, dogs who bark persistently may not be able to attend.
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 (or working towards if they are still a pup).
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 and worm treated regularly, and should ideally be registered with your local council.
We can take pups from 14 / 16 weeks - once they've had their full course of 3 vaccinations. We can feed your pup a midday meal if needed - you'll just need to supply it in a well sealed, named container at collection.
And it's a bit like kindergarten - if your dog is sick or is contagious please keep them at home.
We strongly recommend pet insurance for all of our customers.
