Sarah Stockdale


I grew up in a farming family and have had a life-long love for animals.

As a teenager I worked at a boarding kennels and cattery and showed corgis and shetland sheep dogs.

At present, our four footed family includes Sasha, a beautiful Tokenise cat with a big personality and Pip the Jack Russell who is just as engaging. But it's Sasha who wins in the 'boss' stakes; she keeps Pip in line!

I left the corporate world to follow my passion to work with pets. I saw a real need for a comprehensive service, providing proactive health and well-being care for pets at home by a qualified team with skills, passion and an absolute commitment to caring for animals.

From your first day as part of our Paws at Home family, we guarantee your pets will have a world-class client experience.

Home Hosts

Grant (Grandview Heights, Hamilton) has been hosting dogs for almost 10 years and is well-loved by all his four footed family and his extended Paws at Home family members. He and his wife Irene are both passionate about animals and have built up great skills in providing the very best care, fun and security. Walks and play in the park, quiet time and social interaction are all on the menu daily.
Christine (Hamilton Lake) has been a Paws at Home Home Host for 18 months and has the perfect place to have her guests feel right at home.
A great secure garden environment with a property backing on to Innes Common for easy exercise. Her four footed guests are always excited to come back and stay again and again.
Jeanette (Dinsdale) My name is Jeanette and I absolutely love dogs. In return, they love me back and give me enormous pleasure and joy. As a home host, I make my home theirs and give them a loving and caring environment while they are away from home. My husband and son both also love dogs and between the three of us, we make sure they are well exercised, entertained and loved.
Carole (Ohaupo) Animals bring so much joy and brightness into our lives and improve our health and well-being. I have personally owned dogs for more than 30 years and I enjoy home hosting, giving much-loved dogs a holiday while their owners are away. Dogs live here as part of our family, are walked and played with daily and have almost constant human company. They are welcome to lie beside us on the couch in the evening, or enjoy the mat in front of the fire. I take my role very seriously and am happy to be of service with daily updates and photos.

Victoria (Horsham Downs). Having had dogs for many years, I understand how deeply we care for them. Our large block, just outside Flagstaff, is perfect for medium to large-sized dogs: a great outdoor space for exploring and playing; a comfy home where they live as part of the family; and always liberally sprinkled with plenty of attention and cuddles. Eight years experience with greyhounds and the Greyhounds As Pets organisation, as well as having had an Airedale with special medical needs, I appreciate the trust required between all of us – and how re-assuring a daily update can be.

Pippa (Whakatane) I grew up on a sheep and beef farm in Taihape where a passion for animal care developed, often to the despair of my parents when I brought home assortments of sick and injured animals. Now I own a lifestyle block in Whakatane where dogs, goats, pigs horses and cows have joined my family. I have followed my passion for animals by completing a degree in Veterinary Technology giving me comprehensive knowledge of medical, behavioural and nutritional needs of our pets. I understand the importance of trusting someone to look after your fur babies as part of the family. I often send my dog to "nana and grandads" while I'm at work and love getting updates and pictures of what she gets up to through the day. I am excited to offer this opportunity to others
Lindsey (Cambridge) Dogs have always been in my life and since I was a young girl our family have had dogs. I am English but have lived in New Zealand now for the past 14 years. I have two 13 year old Cavalier King Charles spaniels, Ollie and Archie. They are brothers but both have their unique personalities. Ollie is is my naughty boy and never leaves my side and Archie is the more mature one but still loves his cuddles.

I have also been using the services of Paw at home for my dogs. For me having in home care for my dogs has been great. Sharon, my Pet Minder, feeds, chats, cuddles and checks my boys are happy and she also takes them for a walk so they still get the exercise they need. What I also love is that Sharon texts me afterwards so I know my boys are happy and well looked after. I am now happy to be able to offer this wonderful service myself and excited to be a Home Host for Paws at Home.
