Foster Homes Needed

Can YOU help us please? Kiwikiwi Hounds are growing and as such we are looking for foster families to help our wonderful hounds adjust to pet life. Please do drop us a line at [email protected] if you are in the Canterbury region and would like to host a wonderful houseguest ❤

Everybody's favourite retired racing greyhound trainer has his own kennels. So happy for you Kerry Hurst 😊 Our own dogs Sid and Scarlet, Jazz and Tex have all been to classes with Kerry and we can't recommend him highly enough. 😊

David (Epic Boom) has headed off to his forever home with Sukhveer and David. To avoid confusion, David (the hound) will be known as Davey Jr!

He went off with a lovely Mendota lead thanks to Premium Petware, a free in home massage thanks to K9 Muscle Therapy and a muzzle and treats from KiwiKiwi Hounds! We look forward to the updates.

Huge thanks to Treacy from Premium Petware for the wonderful donation of a crate for our foster dogs. We strongly recommend the use of crates for all newly adopted dogs too. David (Epic Boom) entered our foster programme today, sporting a beautiful collar bought by his trainer, from the range donated to us by Woofo Empawrium.

Premium Petware has crates similar to this one for sale or for hire. Check our Useful Services page for contact details.
