Auckland's Getting a Dog Fashion Show!

Being a dog owner is a hella' tough task. Ya know that feeling when you’re getting all glam'd up for a night out, you're ready to roll but then you spy your pooch puppy-dog eyeing you from across the room…So then you start wondering whether you should take a rain check on all plans and just curl up on the couch with your furry friend instead? Yep, it’s pretty tough being a devoted human being.

Well, it seems Prince Charming has come to the rescue, in a makeshift form of a Doggy-Styles runway show! Cue the celebrations, us loving Aucklander’s now have the opportunity to pamper our pup to the girls' night they’ve always dreamed of—or lads' night? This is officially your best friends Cinderella mo’.

Perfectly timed with the arrival of NZ Fashion Week, The Lake house Art’s Centre in Takapuna has teamed up with Petstock to bring a full day of canine activities they like to call 'Dogable Art'. Dress your pooch in the finest outfit you can find, grab out the hair ties and the de-tangling brush because this day is oozing with fabulosity. 

Starting off the celebrations is a tasteful photo-shoot with award-winning photographer, Lyle Adams. This is where those puppy-dog eyes will come in handy as you want this picture to be one to send to the entire fam! Homemade christmas cards anyone? Don't fret if photography isn’t your dogs selling point, you can kick it old-school style and grab a live portrait of your pup from the renowned Quick Draw artist, Rebecca ted Borg.

The afternoon boasts puppy training and trick teaching with a certified canine teacher, so whether your dog be 10-months or 10-years, they’ll find their place here. Saving the best for last, the grand finale is none other than a giant doggy runway show! With prizes for the winners and good vibes floating around, you'd be silly to miss this—Hey, even if we were dog-less we’d still come around to catch some cuteness.

Get in quick though, the limited tickets are selling fast!
