Amazing setting for dogs and they came back happy and worn out. Very obvious the owners love the dogs and spend a lot of time with them. Highly recommend.

These are the most incredible kennels in Taranaki. They were so invested in our puppy and obviously had a lot of knowledge. Extremely clean and tidy facilities. Highly recommend.

I cannot praise Marius and Valhalla Kennels highly enough. Costa our 9 month old Lab got sick while at the kennels (nothing to do with Valhalla, he had eaten a sock before going there) and Marius notices something wrong straight away and got him to the vet. He checked in on him and kept us updated (as we were away). Our boy ended up needing surgery and it could have been way worse if not for Marius noticing and getting Costa to the vet.
