About Golden Oaks

Meet Andrea

Hi!  It's nice to meet you.  I am Andrea, owner and operator of Golden Oaks Golden Retriever Retreat. We are based in Cambridge in the mighty Waikato, New Zealand. 

I have been in the animal industry for over 20 years working as a Vet nurse and an animal welfare inspector at SPCA. 

I love golden retrievers and am passionate about this breed. I love being with the dogs and providing advice on all things golden retriever-related. I get a lot of pleasure and satisfaction watching the puppies develop and adult dogs refining their social skills.

Myself and my family treat our goldie guests as one of our own.   This includes both daycare and overnight visitors.  Unless requested, we generally do not kennel our guests.   All dogs are taken out on adventure walks daily and we try and keep all owners up to date with regular pics and messages from all dogs staying at Golden Oaks.

Boutique Business 

We are a small boutique business, so our numbers are limited so we can give lots of love and attention to your golden baby.  

Mischief We Get Up Too!

"Andrea is such a knowledgeable and caring lady. Sandy and Maisie have joined the ranks of regular grooming late in life at 10 yrs old. Sandy has just returned from her first ever sleepover away from home without her family.

Andrea kept us well informed about her progress and what trips she had been on. I couldn’t b more thrilled with how the sleepovers went. I will certainly be booking again in the near future. Thanks Andrea"
