About The Mutt Hut

The Mutt Hut has been Paulina's dream since she arrived with her family in New Zealand in 2016.

Having successfully owned and operated two dog grooming businesses in Europe as a Master Groomer, Paulina wanted to offer Kiwi dog owners a reliable, friendly dog grooming service that attends to the unique needs of dogs who are frequently walked on the beach and swim in the ocean.  She is also committed to ensuring all dogs in her care are feel reassured, relaxed and comfortable at The Mutt Hut.  Grooming needn't be a stressful experience for any dog, or his or her owner.

Opened in October 2017, The Mutt Hut loves to help dogs keep healthy, with clean coats that smell and look good!  In December 2021 we closed our Hibiscus Coast premises in Orewa as our family decided to move to Nelson.  We look forward to meeting you and your dog/s soon!
