About Top Dogs

Our team at Top Dogs Day Stay are a pretty brilliant lot, they’re energetic, they love what they do and they are very good at it too.  The team are either trained in the dog industry, specialising in animal management and wellbeing.  Altogether there is an abundance of knowledge and experience and we are happy to impart as much information and advice as you need or want. Just ask!

 

Top Dogs Day Stay is owned and run by Angela Lewis

To me, the two most important things within this business are our professional team and the high-quality care and attention they provide, every single day, to our ‘Day Stay’ dogs. And secondly, our loyal clients and the wellbeing of their dogs. Without these two key factors forever being at the forefront as our drivers, we wouldn’t be operating from the passionate, empathetic and knowledgeable ‘place’ that we are”

Our team are experienced dog handlers with a raft of other talents including Vet nursing skills, Zoology and conservation, fine arts and wild animal care, dog wellbeing and management –  to mention just a few of their interests! They have a range of obedience and dog handling skills which makes for a happy and multi- talented team.

 

 

 

A big hello from three on the team: Jess, Ange and Anna with a “Welcome Wave” from our premises at 136 Marua Road, Ellerslie.

We do things a little differently around here it’s what sets us apart. We like the very hands on, personal approach with each dog. On a daily basis we focus on teaching manners and supplying both calm stimulation and energetic play so that between us and you we are working together to create a content, respectful companion. One that will want to rest his weary head at the end of a fun and happy day with us. Our Clients keep returning because their dogs are content, they’re exercised, socialised and treated with the upmost level of attention and care – they feel good, so you feel good.

Having a “blonde” day at Top Dogs!

I bet, like a lot of our clients, you can feel guilty about leaving your dog at home alone, or that he’s bored, that he should be around other dogs more, that he needs more exercise. Or maybe you want him to have a few days where he gets a total change of scene, gets to feel like a real dog and develops a few friends along the way. Or maybe he needs some training, or a little work on manners? ‘Day Stay’ shouldn’t be thought of as a ‘luxury’ – the wellbeing of your dog is not a luxury but a necessity and with our range of day stay, obedience and wellbeing services he’ll be in top condition.

 

 

 

Introducing some of our team:

Ange has studied dog management and vet nursing and is always a wonderful calm support to the dogs. Her photography skills are pretty jolly good too! Jess is a vet nurse and has worked with dogs particularly, for the past four years. Anna has her Ecology degree with a focus towards live animals and conservation, our other Jess is studying for her medical degree. Chelsie has her BSc and is now studying captive animal management and there are more of us too! The thing is that at Top Dogs we are all TOTAL dog lovers and we appreciate the contribution and the excellent work from all on our team!
