• Timber

    Our shelters are built with NZS 3604:2011 compliant timber to ensure safety and quality. This is a New Zealand standard for timber-framed buildings, which means the timber used in the construction of the Peter and Son Pet and Animal Shelter meets high standards of safety and quality. This compliance ensures that the shelters are not only durable and robust but also safe for your pets.

  • Corrugated Iron

    The roofing iron on our shelters is designed to meet New Zealand Building Code standards for a minimum of 15 years, ensuring durability and reliability. 

  • Hardware

    The hardware in the Peter and Son Pet and Animal Shelter is all galvanised. This galvanisation makes the hardware resistant to rust and corrosion, ensuring it can withstand outdoor conditions and last for many years.

    The shelter is also seriously braced for long-term durability with joist hangers and nail plates. This professional quality ensures the shelter can withstand heavy loads and harsh weather conditions. The shelter is held together very securely, preventing it from shifting or coming apart over time.

Trustworthy Pet Care

No more lost sleep over your pets

With a Peter and Son Pet and Animal Shelter, you can finally bid farewell to restless nights worrying about your pets. Our shelters are designed with waterproof materials, a solid timber floor, and a closed back end to provide a safe and dry environment for your pets. The added feature of foam seals under the corrugated roof iron ensures that no rain can enter, keeping your pets warm and dry even in the harshest weather.

Responsibly protecting your animals

My shelters are not just shelters, they are a promise to responsibly protect your animals. Crafted with tanalised timber and galvanised roof iron, these shelters are built to last, providing a sturdy and durable home for your pets. The use of NZ renewable timber further underscores our commitment to sustainability and responsible pet care.

During the winter, it offers protection from the rain and prevailing winds. The shelter is constructed with corrugated iron that features a rubber seal between the back wall and the corrugations, preventing water from seeping inside.

“If I could talk to animals, just imagine it” lyrics to popular Sammy Davis Junior Song.

We ordered a sheep shelter from Tony and were delighted with the quality when it arrived. Sammy Davis Junior and David Bowie, our grandchildren’s ex Ag Day lambs, are also very pleased. Throughout the process, Tony’s communication was first class while discussing the flooring options and delivery. He helped unload and position the shelter which went above and beyond what was expected. We recommend Tony’s workmanship and general approach without hesitation. Philip and Jenny

We are delighted with our two Cape Cod chairs. They are sturdy and stylish. Most importantly for us they do not budge in a breeze - we live in a high wind zone and wanted something that would stay put. Tony was excellent to deal with and even dropped the chairs off to us on his family holiday to the South Island. Truly great quality and service.

Very good communication and service

Best filleting table

Looked at a lot of options before finding Peter&Son.
I wanted more height so I wasn’t bending and space to put fillets as well as room for two to use. What I got is amazing, plenty of space and good height. Thoroughly recommend.


Thanks for your efforts!
