Vickie Wilson, Owner

What started as a dream for Vickie, turned into a quickly growing reality. Dogs Galore was started as a way to spend more time with her personal dogs- and in less than 5 years, she has 239 dogs visiting on a weekly basis.

Vickie’s CV is far too long to list, as well as winning most national titles in Dog Agility, she has dabbled in most things dogs! Obedience, Rally, Tux wonder dog… You name it! She is a highly sought-after trainer, and we are lucky enough to have her in the North Island after she started out life in Canterbury. Vickie currently has 4 dogs, 3 heading dogs (Trigger, Wheedle, & Alaska), and a Beardie (Cillia)  You couldn’t ask for more from a business owner, she is very hands-on but allows our staff to get on with their jobs. We consider ourselves pretty lucky 😊


Savanna, Manager

Howdy! My name is Savanna but please just call me Sav! I’ve worked in the dog industry for a little over 10 years scoring my first dog job at a kennels immediately after completing an animal care course at Wintec. Deciding the kennel environment was just not for me I went on a soul search to find the best daycare in the North Island and stumbled across a little gem by the name of Dogs Galore. Dog’s Galore has taught me so much about environment, behaviour and dog training, and to finally find and work along side someone who’s morals align with mine has been a godsend. I live halfway between Cambridge and Te Awamutu with my little 4 year old Kelpie  - Vulpix (Pixie) I have a love for all things horror and music and also compete in agility so spend my spare time at dog shows or engulfed in a good Stephen King novel 


Angela, aka Ang 

Hi, Im Angela. I have been working at Dogs Galore for over year now.

Im born and bred in Wellington, living in the Waikato for the last 20 years. I live on a beautiful farm just around the corner from the DG base, with my 3 German Shepards and 1 Huntaway (aka the weird uncle). 

Ive had varied jobs over the years mainly as a PA, before going back outside as a farmhand/pre-training rider for thoroughbreds. Spending the last years dry stock farming before coming to Dogs Galore. On my weekends I love to hang out with my dogs, ride my motorcycle and potter about the farm. 

I am having a fantastic time at Dogs Galore, I look forward to seeing all the excited dogs at pick up and hanging out with them!


Mackenzie, aka Macca. 

My family dog Baxta is one of the originals at DG so, I’ve been seeing Vickie and the “School bus” since my primary uniform!! I finished school in 2020 at TAC and began a year of Vet Nursing in 2021 at Wintec, through this I came to do work experience for my course at Dogs Galore and have never looked back! Now I’m a full time van driver at DG and you’ll catch me looking after the daycare dogs, doing some gardening (with help of course ) or in the groom room knee deep in soap bubbles and dog hair! At home we have 5 chickens and 2 Guinea pigs, Dave and Winston who keep me busy on my days off, as well as watering my many many houseplants, and looking after our veggie gardens.

Vicky, aka Vic

Hi I'm Vic! I live in Pirongia not far from DG headquarters with my two teenage children. For the last 25 years I have worked on dairy farms and in childcare but working with dogs has been a dream of mine since I was child participating in the dog trials in the open hills of Kawhia. In 2023 I finally decided to chase my dream and completed an animal care course at Open Polytechnic and then managed to land a job at the coolest dog daycare in the North Island!
