Exhibiting Pedigree Guinea Pigs since 1992
We are two small Pedigree Cavy (Guinea Pig) Studs in Whangarei, NZ. In 1992 Mamaku Cavy Stud was registered by my mum (Marilyn) and showing one of the Unique and Rare Pedigree Breeds the 'New Zealand Plumes'. Over 29 years Breeding and Exhibiting 'New Zealand Plumes' they are obviously very dear to our hearts. Tintola Cavy Stud was registered in 2001 by me (Jen), I registered my own stud name after several years of showing under Mamaku Cavy Stud with my mum. My focus is on New Zealand Plumes with my mum and I also breed and exhibit Self Chocolates.
We exhibit our Pedigree Cavies with Independent NZ Cavy Clubs. NZ Plumes are an Exclusive Pedigree Cavy Breed and Independent NZ Cavy Clubs are the only Cavy Clubs NZ Breeds can be shown in. If you are a fan of our Unique Breeds, support the Independent Clubs who still actively encourage our NZ created breeds to be shown.
