Kuri Companion - Wellington

About us

Kuri Companion is owned and operated by Kristin and James Nepia. James has been offering professional socialisation services as Kuri Companion since 2013 with Kristin joining the business in 2018.

Yard socialization service

Our yard based socialisation service operates in the Wellington area.


Price - $55 per day (this includes the mandatory pick up and drop off service)

We use a quarter acre purpose built fully fenced dog yard to run our services alongside Wolf Pack NZ and Club Kuri. Collectively we operate as
'Te Whare o nga Kuri - The House of Dog'. 

We have over 15 years combined experience running successful socialisation services within the Wellington region. 

We aim to provide dogs with a safe and structured environment using basic obedience training to teach dogs appropriate social skills with a focus on impulse and excitement control. We do this to give dogs a place to just be dogs.

Before we can accept any dog they will need to be assessed for their suitability to the service. We do this in a meet and greet so we can meet the dog in their own home environment and so you can meet the handler who will be working with your dog.
