Other Services

In conjunction with other suppliers we also offer:

Gold Card Discount: We offer a Gold Card Discount of 20% where the primary owner holds a Gold Card. Show your Gold Card at Reception to have this applied to your account.

Flea Treatment and Worming: If you purchase your product from Paws and Claws in Upper Hutt, they will stamp a card for you to bring to us to prove dog has been treated. We will update our records so that we can send you out a reminder when treatment is next due. Alternatively you can purchase the product and bring to us and we will do it for you.

Paws Four A Groom: We offer dog grooming onsite with grooming specialist ‘Paws Four A Groom’ in our separate grooming hub. One of our experienced groomers can groom your dog while at daycare or a separate appointment can be made.

Boarding Facilities*: We now offer boarding at our home. This service is only available to Four Small Paws clients. Our home is located in 20 acres of bush with 2 acres of flat land for dogs to run around in. We can take up to four small dogs at a time to share facilities with our two. Please supply bedding and food. We will supply play, space to run free and love. You can read more about this service here.

* Bookings are essential as our boarding facilities have now become very busy

Training: More details to come on this. We will be offering training for your dog during the day but also offer classes for you and your dog in the evenings.

Workshops for Owners: Dog ownership does not normally come with instructions. Sure, you are told to take them to puppy school and maybe take in a small course in Obedience, but what about food, health and their mental state? Over the year we are going to be running a wide variety of workshops covering all these topics plus some fun ones as well. Watch our Training page for more details.

Four Small Wheels

Why spend your weekends racing around the place, taking your dog for vaccinations and getting them groomed when this can be taken care of for you. We not only offer a pick up and drop off service for our day care dogs, but will also deliver them to the Vet or Groomer as required.

Even if you are not a regular day care attendee, you can book for the half day and book our groomer in, we will make sure your dog gets there and back safety. At the end of the day, you pick up a freshly groomed, happy and tired dog.

Each dog is fully harnessed and safely attached to the vehicle seatbelts. You must supply your own harness. Our rates for the pick-up/drop-off service are above. Please note that we only serve the Upper Hutt area.

This service must be pre-booked.

Please note: We cannot take human passengers in our van.
