Just wanted to let everyone know what a great place this is for your dog. My dog Muttley goes 3 times a week and just loves it. He is a very sensitive dog and this has just been the greatest thing I could of done for him. He now gets to play in a pack with other dogs and meet new people all the time. Great work Tracey.
Thank you Sharon , Muttley is my number one helper, he keeps his eye on EVERYTHING.
My German Shepherd puppy, Kobi, has been attending The Dog Zone since the age of 13 1/2 weeks for weekly sessions of play and interaction with other dogs. His enthusiasm on arriving clearly tells me that he loves going there - this is reinforced by the happy (if somewhat tired!) puppy that comes home with me.
Tracey's understanding of dogs and her purpose-built facility provide a safe place where I feel confident to leave my puppy during my weekly visits to town. His experiences at Dog Zone are providing a major contribution to Kobi's social development.
Tracey can be immensely proud of the valuable resource she has provided for dog owners - I highly recommend it, and support her in fulfilling her dream.
Thank you Heather for that lovely testimonial, it has been a priviledge to be part of Kobi's development and be a part of his life.
Bella has been attending The dog zone with Tracey for about a month now. Bella is six years old and when we first arrived, her hair stood on end as she did not prefer other dogs, would rather her tennis ball. However as every Wednesday goes, I find myself listening to her whining and pawing at the door trying to get out when we arrive at The Dog Zone. Ever since she has attended, she has gone a lot more confidence than what she had. I would recommend anyone I talk to about Bella going to "doggy day care" to go see Tracey, as Tracey is super duper awesome with the kids (as you call them!) and gets to know each dog on a personal level and not only that, she understands them as well. Keep up the great work. Bella loves attending.
Thank you Bonnie. Bella is a delight, a genuine happy dog, who gets immense pleasure in playing. Especially with ball and I love how she is happy to jump into the shub for her bath each week.
Thandi , my German Shepherd, has been going to The Dog Zone for two months now , and absolutely loves her days there ! She is learning to share and socialise, and comes home happy and exhausted ( what a blessing ! ). Thanks Tracey - you have an amazing facility and a great rapport with our four legged children !
Thank you Joan. Thandi has become a true member of the pack and I love how she shows genuine excitement at being at The Dog Zone everytime she arrives.
My (nearly 3-year-old) German Shepherd bitch Tommi has been going to The Dog Zone on a regular basis since Tracy opened her amazing facility. Tommi enjoys the interaction with all the dogs who visit. I feel this is a very important part of her development, and on-going education.
To be able to socialize with many different breeds of dogs makes for a well rounded animal. Also to be able to meet other owners of dogs who visit is important for her as well.
To have a dog you can take anywhere, and put into any situation is a joy to own. I think the time spent playing and socializing contributes to a well rounded happier dog,and I feel Tommi's time spent at The Dog Zone truly keeps her feet firmly on the ground, and makes her a much more social, people and dog friendly animal.
Thank you Tracy for offering the dogs of Whangarei the chance to spend time with each other and 'just be dogs'
Thank you Jean for your kind words. It is a pleasure to have Tommi at The Dog Zone, she is a credit to you and she often tests me to see if the rules are the same , but is very easy to manage. I enjoy her time with me.
Dog Zone's first Christmas has arrived and Tracey must be very proud of the way she has developed her business over these past 9 months. With weekly visits I notice not only the benefits and pleasure my own dog gains but see the way that others gain confidence and learn to enjoy the company of their own kind - all with the help of Tracey's understanding and support. It is great to notice her client base growing, with a wide mix of dog breeds -all shapes, sizes and personalities! Well done Tracey! Kobi and I look forward to coming back after Christmas - in fact we don't know what we'd do without you! Thanks and wishing you and your business success in 2014 and beyond.
I took our pound puppy Roxy for her first visit to the Dog Zone on Friday. Roxy needs to get used to other dogs so we were refered to Tracey. Nothing short of a miracle to come back to pick her up and see her standing in the paddle pool with one of her new friends and thoroughly enjoying herself. We both were very impressed with such a quick transformation. Tracey is a true master of her trade and be assured your dog is in safe and expert hands. We look forward to regular visits and highly recommended to all.
Thank you Chris for your feedback. You and your family are doing a wonderful job with Roxy.And are now reaping the rewards of your commitment to patience and consistency in training Roxy. Enjoy now she is a lovely dog .
Tracey you are amazing and the best help I have had. Hank and Izzy are besides themselves as I drive up the driveway and ready to leap out of the car and have play dates with their new found friends. Awesome awesome place and such tired fur babies at the end of the day ! love Dog Zone
Thank you Deb. It has beena pleasure to help with Izzy and she is very entertaining with her bird fetish.Hank joined the pack extremely well. Thank you for your comments.
Bert absolutely loves Dog Zone, and the new premises are great. Bert is an 'only' at home and Dog Zone has taught him all his socialization skills. Don't know what we'd do without you Tracey.
Thank you Maureen. It is always a guaranteed laugh when Bert comes to play. Bert is either wallowing in a hole of mud if a wet day or in the pool if it is hot.
We were recommended Tracey because we had two so-called ‘problem dogs’. After we met Tracey for the first time, she was very confident that these issues can be solved. The dogs started to go to The Dog Zone on a regular basis and we were given some ‘homework’ too, i.e. establishing that it’s us who should be the leader of the pack, and not the dogs.
Only a few weeks down the track we noticed a considerable change in our dogs’ behaviour and a few months down the track we are proud owners of well behaved and so much calmer dogs!
Tracey’s knowledge of dogs and the way she handles them at The Dog Zone is incredible and we will forever be thankful to her!
Needless to say that we highly recommend Tracey and The Dog Zone to every dog owner. It’s an awesome place for dogs to hang out with each other, a safe and well supervised environment. Tracey, you made all the difference, thank you very much for all your support!! The dogs LOVE you :)
Thank you very much for your fantastic feedback Christine. I LOVE helping dedicated owners obtaining a GOOD relationship with their dogs. It is not hard to have a well behaved dog who is a pleasure to be around and take out . You had your work cut out for you, but both of your dogs are in a much happier space and so are you and Thomas
Breathe, Relax and Enjoy :)
