We Are

Anna & Blair have been dog-sitting since 2014. What started as a pass-time has grown to a passion for dog care. Rocky, Wookie and Jack are Anna & Blair’s friendly dogs. They have all been adopted (Rocky in 2010, Wookie in 2015 & Jack in 2017). Their love for animals doesn’t stop at dogs though. Anna & Blair have a small property in Clarkville where they raise rescued chickens and sheep.



We at Rocky & Co. Pet Care offer our furry guests a compassionate 24/7 care in a home environment. We are not a kennel!

Every guest stays with us in our own house and with our three little dogs: Rocky, Wookie and Jack. Our property is completely fenced off to offer a secure area of just over 800 m2 for all dogs.

Our dog-sitting and dog daycare services include regular daily walks to keep your dog exercised and fit because we want you to have a relaxed dog by the time you take him home with you.

At night time, they can sleep on any of our several dog beds, beanbags and couches in our living room.

With plenty of grassed area, the dogs have a huge space to play and socialise with other friendly dogs. We assess every new furry client’s behaviour before we accept them into the group. This is why we only look after a limited number of dogs at one time to make sure that we can offer the best care and our full attention to each dog.

Rocky & Co. Pet Care is the homestay for your dog. We like to say that our home is your dog’s second home, and it’s part of our mission to give dog owners the peace of mind they need when they’re away from their furry babies.

So, get in touch and schedule a Free Play Date to meet us and our dogs! We will be delighted to show you and your dog around!

It’s my birthday!!! And the dogs got treated to a special walk: Taylor’s Mistake

For a special day, a special walk! I took the dogs to Taylor’s Mistake, in Sumner (Christchurch) for a different walk along one of the most beautiful spots in town. I also treated myself with some yummy ice cream. Couldn’t have had a grander time, surrounded by the love of my dogs and two furry guests: Ruby and Mickey.

Walking our guests in Silverstream Village, Kaiapoi.

Today, I took Ruby, Bella and Mickey for a walk in Silverstream Village, Kaiapoi. Ruby and Bella are at Rocky’s Day Care today, whereas Mickey will be staying with us for a few weeks. I like to find a quiet spot during our morning walks where I can stop with the dogs for a wee while and appreciate the view. It’s also a great chance to get the dogs to socialise and teach them to wait for their turn and respect other dogs when they’re getting treats. I think Ruby, Bella and Mickey behaved very well today, don’t you think?

Shelby and Mel

Shelby, a black staffy-cross, and Mel (little poodle-cross) are great friends. Mel comes every week to Rocky’s Day Care. Shelby comes every so often normally for overnight stays. These two are a delight to watch while they’re playing. The beautiful sunny autumn day makes the images more stunning.
