I was delighted to receive a Mother’s Day card from Anika. Thanks Big Brown Paws team!
My three dogs now full time 5 days a week doggie day care. Amazing team and we are grateful the three amegos having more fun than we are at work.
You all know how much the Legend team love their four legged friends so you could imagine it's been a match made in heaven working with the team at Big Brown Paws Pet services Limited Taupo with their marketing strategy and new website.
Let's all be as happy as this pooch as we head in to the second to last weekend of 2020.
Happy International Dog Day guys!!

Happy International Women’s Day!
From all of us at BBPAWS!

We celebrate international women’s day on the 8th March to recognise the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. We celebrate to raise awareness about gender equality and lobbies for accelerated gender parity.

Here is a favourite quote
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”
-Mother Teresa


Best Mates Monday! This week the spotlight is on the budding new friendship of Raphy & Violet! 🐾

Violet has just come back to BBPAWS after having a break and Raphy made it his mission to make her feel super welcomed!💕


This little guy has won our Dog Of The Week for being the tiniest doggo with the biggest heart 💙 Despite his teeny stature, Oakley is as fearless as it comes - he has wasted no time making friends of all shapes and sizes! On his first day at BBPAWS, Oakley decided to befriend some of the dogs ten-times his size - we think he was secretly employing them for protection! 🤣 He adores cuddles from staff throughout the day & he even won the Gold Medal in our BBPAWS Olympics for his beautiful contemporary dance 😅 Thanks for continuously brightening our week, little cutie! 🐾

This week we welcomed these two beautiful dogs to our Big Brown Paws whanau 👋🐾

Oscar is a lovely, placid retired Greyhound who loves taking a dip in the paddling pool, snoozing on the beds & being the wise guardian to the younger doggos.

Ru is an adorable Miniature Schnauzer who was quite possibly the most popular new dog we have had to-date on his first day; he made more friends than we could write on his Report Card!!


A soggy dog is a happy dog


"The saying 'opposites attract' couldn't be more accurate for these two besties! This unlikely duo, Blu & Nessie, have an absolute blast together - height difference is no issue for these pups!"


Dexter went on his first walk with Big Brown Paws this week, and had an absolute blast! The humans had fun too as Dexter made sure to stay with the group and always came when called. For his great behaviour he has been named Dog of the Week and can come along for walks anytime.


This week at Big Brown Paws we had a new fur member join our crew! Meet Gwen🐶
Gwen had a fulfilled day that consisted of cuddling all staff and making sure all the dogs were behaving in the pen✨


Kia ora BBPAWS family! Please read this post from VetPlus regarding Parvovirus in the community. Also read below for our canine vaccination requirements at BBPAWS.


The vaccinations we require for canines at BBPAWS are:

1) ✅DHPP/i✅ (Canine Distemper Virus, Canine Adenovirus - CAV-2, Canine Parvovirus, Canine Parainfluenza)

2) ✅Kennel Cough (KC)✅ (Bordetella)

3) ✅Leptospirosis✅ (Lepto, Leptospirosis copenhageni)

We also require our dogs at BBPAWS to be regularly treated for fleas & worms.

If your dog has received their vaccination boosters please send us a picture of their updated Vet Book, or upload it to their profile on Paw Partner.

If you have any queries regarding Canine vaccinations, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Thank you😊

Sadly we have been seeing a few cases of parvovirus; this virus can be deadly to your puppies or dog.

Parvovirus (‘parvo’) is a highly contagious, viral disease. Symptoms are - lethargy, lack of appetite and fever. This usually progresses to vomiting and bloody diarrhoea. The disease can progress quickly and severe disease often results in death.

Please make sure:
•Your puppies have received the full vaccination course
•Your adult dogs’ vaccinations/ boosters are up to date
• Dogs and puppies undergoing the vaccination course are kept away from public areas, parks, the lake and dog exercise areas (they are not fully protected until 10-14 days after their last vaccination).

If you have any questions about parvovirus or our vaccination process, please phone us on 0800 VETPLUS
If you do suspect your pet has parvovirus please contact the clinic before bringing your fur baby in, due to the highly contagious nature of this virus.

Here is a few photos of our week


First time babies

This baby boy had his first mini groom today, not sure it was his favourite thing but he sure did look dashingly handsome. Also the groomer in training got some more great practice under her belt, super job!


Nothing like a good face lift to finish off the middle of the week in the grooming room today.


Tongues out Tuesday!
These doggies are having a great time with there tongues out!

Swims and walks from last week and today!
We take out a group of 10 dogs a day, so if you would like your dog to join in the fun let one of our staff know. For $5 your dog will join us on a 40mi n to 1hr walk, swim adventure, you can also purchase walk cards.


Closing ceremony of our doggie Olympics!
What a great effort by all, staff included
All the doggies are winners


Day 4 doggie Olympics!
What a great effort from staff and dogs, Cookie you were the star of the day!


This week we award 'Dog of the Week' to the legendary Nala AKA Nana!🍌 This beauty's character is as big as her appetite, and her will to participate in just about anything at Daycare is even larger! Nana always puts her paw up to join in walks, games, tug of war, cuddles & swims. She loves the water more than anything and it would be difficult to find a dog faster at swimming and more buoyant than her. Nana loves a good natter, especially when it's home time - she'll talk your ear off with a side-portion of sass! Thanks for being a consistent ray of sunshine at BBPAWS Nana, your unique personality makes our day 💙

We hope you have an amazing rest of your day Rosie and all the team thank you and your family for the amazing cake to celebrate this amazing day for you!!✨🐶


Day 2 at our doggie Olympics!
All dogs have this event a go, all the dogs love to run!


This floofy big girl had her first de-shed with us today. Despite yelling all her sins at the groomer Winter was a very good girl with a fur coat to die for.


Was this little old lady's last groom with us today, she's off to live the rest of her days at home with her mamma. Sparkles has been a client of ours for roughly 2 years so will miss her very much.
