Sometimes dogs need to go into areas where kiwi live, and increasingly kiwi and dogs are overlapping as subdivisions are developed and projects re-introduce kiwi populations where people already live.
Let’s work together to make sure kiwi remain safe in their own backyards. Register your dog for kiwi avoidance training today.
Kiwi avoidance training for dogs is one tool that can help reduce the threat hunting and farming dogs pose to kiwi in the wild. The best way to protect kiwi is to keep dogs out of kiwi habitat altogether. However, kiwi avoidance training can be a useful tool for dog owners to deter their dogs from injuring or killing kiwi if they do go into areas where kiwi live.
