Do you allow pets?

The only pets allowed on-site at Pakiri Beach Holiday Park for Casual Guests are dogs. We don’t allow Annual Site Holders to bring pets onto the park grounds.

Dates: Except for registered disability assistance dogs, we can only accommodate your pet from May 1st to 1 September and at no time on any School Holidays and Public Holiday Weekends.

Registered disability assistance dogs can be on-site with their owners at any time:

See Note 1 below.

Other small and medium dogs (no more than 25kgs and/or 55cm tall), are welcome to stay at Pakiri Beach Holiday Park with their owners, at the discretion of management.

Your dog is welcome if you have a caravan, tent or motorhome.

If you are staying in any of our built accommodation, you may bring your dog with you by prior arrangement but, except for assistance animals, your dog cannot enter any accommodation or other of our buildings at any time.

Following are our guidelines so that you, your dog and the team at Pakiri Beach Holiday Park can all enjoy your dog’s stay with us.

  1. Your dog is welcome by prior arrangement. Please let us know your requirements when you book.
  2. Some dogs and breeds of dog are not acceptable to stay at our holiday park regardless of size. See Note 2 below.
  3. The decision to allow your dog on-site at our holiday park is entirely at management discretion. If on arrival, our team feel, for any reason whatsoever, that it is not appropriate for your dog to stay, their decision is final. In the event, your dog cannot stay, we will put you in touch with local kennels. See Note 3, below.
  4. Your dog must always be kept under control on a lead. Even outside the holiday park, your dog must be under control on a leash. The Poutawa Stream estuary and the foreshore of Pakiri Beach are breeding grounds for endangered native birds. As a result, dogs are simply not allowed in protected areas under any circumstance.
  5. You may be allocated a site in an area that is some distance away from other guests whether the holiday park is busy or not.
  6. If you’re staying in our accommodation, your dog must always stay outside and sleep in your vehicle or in an appropriately locked kennel.
  7. Your dog must not cause noise disturbance.
  8. Dogs are not allowed into any of our buildings at any time.
  9. You must clean up after your dog. All dog poo must be picked up immediately and disposed of appropriately.

We look forward to welcoming you and your well-behaved dog.

PS: You may be interested to know that in our re-development plans, we are making
provision for a specific dog zone to better caters to our canine guests and their owners.

A dog can be classified as dangerous, regardless of its breed, if:
