This is by far the best homestay in Tauranga! I’ll admit we treat our pup like a little human so it’s not every day you find somewhere that you feel will do the same!! Not only a beautiful location, but loving people so you know your fur baby is safe and happy! Would highly recommend, great rates and great service we also received a letter in the mail 7 months later addressed to our pup with a birthday card and treats inside! Needless to say he was ecstatic! And we were so impressed it made our day. Thank you Muddyfootprints ❤️ he will definitely be coming back and hopefully soon!

Awesome place for dogs! Our boy Trigger was clearly a very content pup when we picked him up from Annabel! Thank you for taking such good care with our fur baby Annabel! We look forward to bringing him back to visit again soon!

Nothing says happy, tired, content and glad to be home than a tired wee pup.  Lexi loves going to Annabel's for the weekend and we love knowing that she has the best time with her doggy friends.  We can not recommend Muddyfootprints enough - if you want your dog loved and cared for this is the place to go.

Wish you didn't move! The BEST place to leave your doggy when you are away, in fact it was the only place we would. Pepper misses you and the fun she would have, and we miss the complete reassurance of leaving her in such capable hands .  Highly recommend to anybody!

Any friends in the north island.... we had the pleasure of using Muddyfootprints while Annabelle lived in Christchurch. She minded four of our family Pooches for around six weeks. We got videos and updates the whole time. It was GREAT! Why oh why have you moved to the north island!!!????

Cooper loved staying for the night and is now exhausted, sleeping in his crate which he normally never does when we're sitting round at home. I bet he'll love it when he comes back when we go on holiday. Highly recommend Muddyfootprints

Thank you so much for looking after Molly and Skyla. They were both relaxed and happy when they got home today and thoroughly exhausted asleep in their beds now. For Molly to be relaxed after being away for a couple of nights is wonderful.

My pup stayed here in July for one week. He played, he slept, he made friends and he was loved! I felt comfortable leaving my baby here, knowing that he would be well cared for in this fabulous, purpose-built location. We enjoyed some beautiful photos while we were away to set our minds completely at ease....I wouldn't hesitate to bring him on holiday here again!

Beau loves spending time with Annabel and the other dogs. She even puts up with him rolling in dirty smelly stuff :) thanks for all the great care of my precious boy.

Annabel has created this wonderful pet homestay. Thank you Annabel for looking after Scupper.

Found this wonderful place last minute after struggling to find somewhere decent in Auckland that was still available over the New year period. Our fur babies (bunnies) were pampered with home grown veges every day, cuddles and a clean and cosey cage out in the country side. Couldn't have asked for a better holiday retreat. Thank you Annabel you're a legend, we will definitely be back!

One very happy and tired puppy!! Definitely recommend...

Fantastic home away from home. Highly recommend to all. Thanks Annabel

My two Cavoodles love staying at Muddyfoot Prints. They fact they have all day freedom to run and play is so much nicer than a small caged area with only a couple of hours free time. They always come home exhausted and happy.

Thanks to Annabel and her team for looking after our boy Lennox. We had to do a quick dash to Auckland for a funeral so needed somewhere for our 7 month old Staffy to spend the night and following day.......the wag on his tail when we dropped him off said it all and even more so when we picked him up. It was evident that he’d had a great time and was looked after as if he was one of Annabel’s own dogs. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to know that their fur baby will be well looked after - we’ll have no hesitation in using again should we ever need to. Thanks again Muddy Footprints team!
