House sitting and pet sitting in New Zealand

Love animals and adventure? Want to journey to the real-life Middle-earth for less? Make it happen by house and pet sitting in New Zealand!

Find free accommodation in New Zealand by caring for cute pets while their owners are away. Dog sitting in New Zealand can take you from the top of North Island to the toe of South Island. With such a diverse mix of locations like cities, volcanoes, mud pools, lakes and mountains, in the home of the haka, there are new experiences around every corner.


New Zealand pet sitting allows you to explore exotic destinations and enjoy fun activities with your pet friends. Cornwall Park in Auckland allows your four-legged friends to stretch their legs as you walk along the trails. You can also plan a picnic and sit under the numerous trees. However, dogs should be on a leash at all times. Meola Reef Dog Park is the perfect spot for pets to socialise and play in the fenced off-leash section. If you love art, you can take a trip to the Brick Bay Wines near Matakana. The Sculpture Trail is over two kilometres, with more than 60 artworks lining the trail.


Your New Zealand dog sitting adventure is incomplete without stopping by Wellington to enjoy panoramic views of the mountains and some sand. Wellington is home to cable cars, the best cookies and outdoor adventures. You can hike Mount Victoria with a pet or climb to the summit and enjoy breathtaking views of the city. On Sunday, stroll around the Harbourside market that features fresh flowers, baked treats and artisan goodies. You can check out the goods in the markets with your furry friend in tow. If you want to catch some sun and a dip in the cool waters, head to Lyall Bay Beach. It is an off-leash beach, and your canine companion can burn off some energy running on the sand.


Explore beautiful beaches, spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and lovely parks when pet sitting in New Zealand. Dunedin has numerous dog parks for morning walks and playtime with off-leash areas and a dedicated spot for small dogs. You can visit Shand Park, Green Island, which has a dog exercising area and a closed-off section for small dogs. Don’t forget to enjoy the sun and New Zealand waters at Saint Clair Beach. Your furry companions can tag along off-leash, and run, dig and play with other pups.


Pets enjoy playing in open places, and Bottle Lake Forest Park offers a serene atmosphere for outdoor adventure and pet sitting. The park is along Waitikiri Drive and is a popular spot for cyclists. You can take a walk with pups along the tracks to explore the park or find a picnic area for your pet friends to play in as they enjoy treats. Some trails lead to the coastline, where you will enjoy the beautiful scenery.
