What makes our dog hotel so special?

Whether you’re away for a night, or off on a three-month holiday, we’ll make your dog feel right at home from the moment they step through our door.

 During their stay, it’s our mission to provide a comfortable and stress-free environment so your dog feels safe and happy. Put simply, we care for your pet with love and respect, as if they were our own.

Our dog hotel services are available at three convenient Auckland locations: Wairau Park, Silverdale, and Mt Wellington.

Luxury Apartments


A range of apartment designs and sizes is available to suit every dog and owner. If you have more than one dog, they can stay together and share a room.

Doggy Daycare


When you book into our dog hotel, your dog joins the daycare dogs for a day of fun and games. At night they rest in their luxury apartment.

Room with a View


Our purpose-built apartments feature tempered glass doors to allow your dog to see what’s happening outside their room.

Clean and hygienic


We have high standards of cleanliness, hygiene, and safety to ensure your pet has a healthy and comfortable space to holiday in while you’re away.



Each apartment is inside our main building, keeping it nice and warm. We provide raised beds, comfy bedding, and snuggly pillows. Each night your dog may find a small edible treat on their pillow.

Trained Staff


Our caregiver staff go through our two-part training programme to ensure they are fully prepared to care for your dog. We also have relationships with local vets who will look after your dog should they become unwell during their stay.

NZ's 1st Pet Hotel and Dog Daycare.

“We Want to say a big thank you to the team at Pets in the City. The excitement from Coco when she realises we have arrived shows how much she loves coming to daycare. Your availability to listen and offer encouragement, advice, and reassurance through all the puppy stages to me was invaluable and a great reassurance. Thank you again, and will see you in daycare.”

"All staff at PITC are amazing and very friendly; we recently put Brody through the Puppy Development training courses on offer, and the wonderful Danielle took him through his paces; she did a fantastic job! After the first 6-week course, we continued and did another 6 weeks, and I noticed a real difference in Brody’s behaviour. The training was well worth it".
Sandy and Brody
"We love Pets in the City! And more importantly, so does our dog, Hiro. We drop our pup off for daycare twice a week and on occasional weekends. The team is a good group of people who care for and love dogs. Hiro even comes home with better manners than when I drop him off. They play and work with the dogs and are so knowledgeable. I am so thankful!"
Jonathan and Hiro
“Pets in the City are the best! Mocha has been a regular for the past 5 years, the team ensured that every time we visit, we were welcomed, and she was taken care of, having so much fun and staying safe and loved by the entire team. I never worry about Mocha when she’s at daycare, because from the photos I receive, she’s always chasing someone’s shoes, or trying to destroy a toy or a towel.”
Mo and Mocha
“Kélia’s second home for the last 4 years, and she shows it with her excited squeals in the car on arrival. I feel confident leaving her with the amazing and experienced staff for her day of fun and cuddles. I would not want to take my girl anywhere else! Thank you PITC!”
Cecile and Kelia
“We have been taking our 3 ½-year-old dog to Pets in the City for most of his life. He attends 2-3 times per week due to our work commitments and the invaluable socialisation skills he gets there. To say the staff there are incredible would be an understatement. He cannot wait to enter the building and is greeted like a long-lost friend. He has had overnight stays there, and we can relax knowing how well cared for he is. If there are any concerns, the team will call to update you. If you are looking for a place to send your precious dog to for love, attention, interaction, and fun, look no further. We cannot speak highly enough of them.”
Lynne and Buddy
We pride ourselves on not being a 'dog kennel'; we are the opposite.

We aim to create a relaxing, clean, safe, a little 'luxurious' environment and the most fun, least stressful experience a dog could have while away from home.


While we know you're the very best caregiver for your dog, we like to be the best while you're away – because we love and will care for yours as we care for our own.

Dog Hotel Menu

We provide healthy, nutritious meals for your dog during their stay.

If your dog has special dietary requirements, please let us know, and we’ll be happy to accommodate their special dietary needs.

If your dog needs medication, our staff are experienced at administering various types of medication.

Dog Hotel FAQ

Stay, Play & Indulge...

Pets In The City is your beloved pet's home away from home!

Your dog can play all day in our spacious play parks, enjoy a peaceful night's rest in a luxurious apartment and enjoy a delicious pamper bath or stylish groom at the end of their stay.



We know safety and security are important to you.  For your peace of mind, we have 24-hour CCTV cameras and external security companies checking on the building throughout the night.

On a typical night, we’ll tuck your dog up for the night between 6 pm and 7 pm, checking all our residents are settled before lights out.

I'm In! How do I get my Dog Booked in?


New Customer?


First, you need to complete our online application form at the following link:


After you submit the form, you will receive an email with instructions on how to book your Dog's assessment. This assessment must be done before confirming your Hotel Booking and will help us get to know them better and determine which play park and play group will best suit your Dog's needs. 


Your Dog's First day!


On your Dog's first day with us, they will undergo a 90-minute Assessment with our Senior Caregiver. Your Dog will be monitored throughout the day to ensure they fit in and feel comfortable.

At the end of their first day, your Dog will leave with their Pets In The City Report, which will tell you about their first day! Of course, you can always check in and see how your furry friend is going with a phone call to our friendly reception team or check out the daily park antics on Facebook, where we post pictures daily of our visitors.

Once your Dog has completed an Assessment with the relevant PITC Branch, you can book your Dog into the Dog Hotel when you pick them up or through our online Portal. They are also welcome to attend daycare in the weeks leading up to the Hotel stay to help them get used to the new environment. 


Existing Customer?


It is a Pets in the City requirement that your Dog must have visited (either used daycare or stayed in the Hotel) the Branch they intend to stay at at least once in the last three months. If it is more than three months between visits, we are required to reassess your fur baby. If you are unsure whether or not an Assessment is needed, please ring your local Branch for advice.

For existing customers, the best way to book your fur baby's stay is through our Owner Portal.

Owner Portal

For a step-by-step guide on how to make a hotel booking online, check out the How To Guide below. 

Or, if you prefer, contact your local Branch via email or phone, and we can make the booking for you.
