Over three years ago I thought, how hard would it be in running boarding kennels...
Many people had said to me “you must be out of your mind” or “you must have the best job, playing with puppies everyday”! I’m Lisa Mair and with the help of my rescue dogs Joe and Tess, you will find us here at the Ripponvale Pet Retreat. I am a little out of my mind… and I do get to play with puppies everyday!
We are a small boutique boarding facility in beautiful Cromwell Central Otago that puts the fun and excitement into your pets’ stay. We love with a passion what we do and know each dog by name and personality. Nothing makes us smile more than seeing our guests brimming with anticipation to get out of your car when you pull up ready to start their holiday!
Any given day we have big ones, old ones, young ones and even out of control ones (in a nice way!) and just downright needy ones in every corner of our kennels and we love it!
Pets are such a huge part of our lives, they are our babies, best friends, soul mates and you only want the best for them…we get that, and we’ve got that covered!
We had big smiles, wagging tails and a lot of fun creating our collection of photos and not to mention bags of treats! Just quietly I think they all had a blast and were not shy of putting their best paw first to make sure they got the best shot! A big thanks to Rohan (husky), Rafe (ridgeback), Harry (collie x), Gubby (retriever), Zeus (mastiff x), Cooper (lakeland), Bruce (hairy mcleary), Luca (staffy x), Daisy (spoodle), Trixie (jack russell) for being total professionals to work with.
