Welcome to Fairfield Pet Lodge Boarding Kennels, previously known as Fairfield Kennels & Cattery. We're a family owned and operated boutique country Pet Lodge providing experienced Dog Training, Doggy Day Care, Boarding Kennels & Cattery for all your pets, with the highest level of care for their home away from home holiday experience. Located in South Auckland we are 7km from Clevedon, a comfortable 20 minute drive from Howick, Beachlands or Maraetai and on a main route to the Coromandel Peninsula. For those travelling abroad we are only 37km from Auckland International Airport. 

Our facility is spread over five stunning hectares including lush paddocks, large garden areas and mature trees. Secure behind electric gates, it offers a safe, healthy and caring environment that your pets will love. Whether you are looking at day stay or want long-term boarding when you are away, you will find that Fairfield has a number of affordable solutions for your peace of mind.  

Due to demand from our customers, we now offer boarding for a range of pets which is why we have re-branded as Fairfield Pet Lodge from May 2017.

Hours: 8-10 am & 4-5 pm 7 days a week. Inspections welcome by appointment.
Peak Seasons: 20 December – 10 January and Easter weekend.
Parking: Available near Reception for Boarding Kennels & Cattery.



  • Stretcher beds and supply blankets (you are more than welcome to bring your pet’s own blanket)
  • Individually housed in full height indoor kennels (if you require dogs from the same household to be boarded together or separately, please let us know)
  • Extra large enclosed outdoor kennels
  • Radio is left on during the day
  • Large, secure, outdoor runs with grassy areas and shade
  • Dogs throughout the day are checked to ensure that they are safe, well and happy
  • Summer paddling pools to let the dogs splash around and cool off, then lovingly towel dried before heading back to bed
  • We monitor the weather when the dogs are outside however if they do get wet, we towel dry them off
  • We only mix social dogs together of a similar size and age. If your dog needs to be separate from the other dogs, please let us know.
  • The boarding kennel is well away from the cattery.

Fairfield Pet Lodge offers 15 outside runs of various sizes. The tranquil setting provides dogs with a rural retreat. A real 'doggy paradise' where Anton believes that dogs should be able to enjoy doggy things; digging, barking, chasing, running, being part of a pack when enjoying social time, being exposed to other farm animals in the adjacent paddocks, or just resting and enjoying the stunning South Auckland countryside.
