About Us

Established in 2012, The Dog Club offers daycare and boarding exclusively for dogs. Situated in St Johns, our facilities features over 800sqm of indoor and 350 sqm of outdoor play space.


In the morning we separate the dogs into different playgroups. Our playgroups are structured around the personalities of the day ensuring the big guys, the little guys, the little guys who think they're big guys and vice versa are happy.


The key to The Dog Club is exercise and play. A happy dog is one that has been physically and mentally stimulated, just like people. Our dogs go home tired and content after a full day of chasing balls and bubbles, playing with their friends, splashing in the paddling pool, and participating in their favourite- the cardboard box demolition party.

Meet The Team



Hey I’m Chanel! I’m a Senior Daycare Supervisor and my main role is to focus on the dogs and their well being. I have worked in the animal industry for 5 years and I previously worked at another doggie daycare before I joined TDC team in April 2021. I‘ve also fostered dogs in the past as I like to help out the doggie community where I can. I have two dogs of my own - Koko & Xia, who you’ve probably seen in our pics with your fur babies! 



Hi my name is Shivi and I'm one of the staff members at TDC. I love hanging out in the back and amaze the rest of the team by sitting with the dogs on the floor and calming them down for nap time. I have also completed a certificate in Animal Care (Companion animals), and volunteered at the SPCA. Before joining the TDC team I worked at Animates VetCare. 



Hi! I'm Igor and I am the operations manager at the TDC. My main role is to coordinate and plan our daily activities to provide a safe and fun environment for all the dogs in our care. I have worked in the animal industry for 13 years, before joining the TDC team in March. I am a huge dog lover and my favorite quote is "A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, educated or illiterate, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his"


Olá! I’m a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (PDT) through AbsoluteDogs. Originally from Brazil, I’ve been living in New Zealand since 2014. I have a 4 years old naughty but nice labrador called Bella and she's the reason why I decided to become a dog trainer. I believe in teaching dogs how to make better choices by teaching them concepts to reshape their brains. My training methods are positive and games-based, so super fun for the dogs and their humans! Can't wait to get to know you and your dogs!



Hi there! My name is Vitoria and I'm originally from Brazil. All my life I have had a passion for dogs and a drive to work with them as much as possible. I have three amazing dogs myself and I used to run a popular dog sitting service! I am also trained in Pet First Aid and working towards a qualification in vet nursing. 


Hi everyone I'm Carmen and I'm the newest member of TDC. I've worked several jobs throughout my life. My most recent job was looking after children with special needs. Before that, I worked as a commercial cleaner for many years. I'm responsible for ensuring all the play areas in TDC are clean and sanitized, as well as caring for the dogs staying with us overnight. I have always loved dogs and recently completed my pet first aid course. 




Hi! My name is Georgia. I’m one of the newest receptionist and animal attendees at TDC. I
began volunteering at TDC for a few weeks as part of my studies towards my certificate in
Animal care (companion animals) and enjoyed every moment. I have always had a passion
and love for dogs growing up and I’m excited to get to know all of your fur babies.



Hiya! My name is Alena and I’m one of the newest members of TDC. You’ll see me in the front covered in fur as I love getting my daily cuddles and puppy piles in while I’m on. I’ve worked in hospo for many years, so I know how to deal with a rowdy crowd. Though, this crowd is the best rowdy bunch I’ve been around! I’ve always had a love for dogs, among other animals, so much so that I’m currently studying to become a vet nurse.
