Apply to be a puppy walker

Thanks for your interest in fostering one of our puppies. Applications will reopen in March 2021. 

Applications to foster a puppy are closed

We're not accepting applications until March 2021. In the meantime, check the form and see if you meet all our criteria. We look forward to hearing from you when applications reopen.


Step 1: Tick all statements that apply to you

You must live in Auckland or Hamilton to be a puppy walker. Apply again if your circumstances change.

All children in your house must be aged 4 or older. Apply again if your circumstances change.

We can't place a dog with you if someone in your household is allergic to dogs. Apply again if your circumstances change.

You must own your own house or have written permission from the home owner to have a dog.

An adult must be home for most of the day, every day.

Your property must be fenced and meet all our requirements.

We cannot place a puppy with you if you already own more than one dog.

If you do already have a dog, it must not be aggressive, dangerous, or menacing.

You must be prepared to take the puppy to events and public areas to help socialise it.

Our puppies are not toilet trained so there will be some messes to clean up.

Step 2: Confirm and complete your contact details

We cannot process your application without this legal confirmation.
