Attention all canine loving amigos—Auckland is getting a Santa Paw-rade and it is happening this very weekend! If there were ever an opportunity to treat your favourite friend (AKA Clifford the big red dog) to their own special day, this is it.
Kicking off bright and early, the celebrations begin with a morning pack walk through the Auckland Domain and finishes with a meet and greet with the one and only Santa Paws and Snowy the Reindog. We’re pretty sure that for dogs this would be like meeting the superhero you’ve idolised since your nerdy teens. It’s safe to say they’re gonna be wooofingly excited.
Kicking things up a notch because us Aucklanders are all about that extra life, Kirsty from Dog & Co. Pet Photography will be available for mini photo shoots throughout the day. Flag the family photographer this year friends, if there’s one image on the annual Christmas cards, it’s this.
The event will finish with a highly anticipated announcement of the best-dressed pups. So make sure your minion has their most extravagant attire on—we're labelling you as TC if you don't go all out. If you needed any more convincing, there's a whole lot of prizes to be won on the day AND the event ties in perfectly with the Canine Collective pop-up currently happening in Ponsonby Central. Perhaps a good excuse to do a bit of Chrissy shopping too because if you're like us, the only person you've bought prezzies for at this stage is yourself.
Pencil in your diary an entire morning of mixing, mingling and absolute chillin’. This is probably the only walk that justifies getting out of bed on a Sunday morning.
