    Question Flying out in December ..with 2 Lurchers!!

    ][/B] Hi..my family and I are flying into Auckland in December ... and we are bringing out our 2 Lurchers!! Can anyone give us some advise or recommend dog friendly accomodation between Auckland and Wellington as my husband has this idea it would be nice to drive down to Nelson/Golden Bay where we are hoping to settle......are we mad?? Its all kicking in here now - hopefully we exchange on our house in the next week any tips, help with moving with dogs gratefully received.

    Hi Wackers,

    Don't know if you'll find anything of use on here or here . A lot of them are holiday parks or caravan parks but they might have static accommodation as well that you can rent. You'll probably need a map to hand, as the town locations may not be well known to you.

    Default coming over in December

    I know Cliff, at the moment we are still not sure where we will end up as my husband has been short listed for a couple of jobs, one being at Wellington Uni ...so maybe we might end up near you on the beautiful Kapati Coast. I could put up with that!

    On the dog issue just send an email to the places you want to stay. Places may not advertise it but will accept them. Depends if you have big hairy dog or small short hair.

    Things are slow so they will be more accommodating for your business. Good option would be if they are crate trained and you have crates.
