To mark its 25th anniversary, DOGUE will be hosting in-store celebrations as well as running a DOGUE Cover Dog competition.

Celebrations will kick off on Thursday 2 March, with DOGUE offering 25 per cent off its exclusive DOGUE Design range. All stores will also be decked out with balloons and birthday decorations, and there will be giveaways for pets.

Simone Kingston, Founder and Creative Designer of DOGUE, said the 25-year anniversary was both a time to celebrate and reflect, but also an opportunity to invest further in DOGUE’s growth strategy and build an even greater future for DOGUE right across Australia.

“It’s been incredible to be able to act and deliver on an idea and a dream inspired by my own dog, Gulliver. Over the last 25 years we have grown from a small start-up business in 1998 with one shop in Sydney to a multi-store, wholesale, and online retail business today.”

Margaret Hennessy, CEO of DOGUE, said it is a huge milestone for the business.

“We are really excited to celebrate the incredible relationships we have built with our staff, our suppliers, our customers and of course, all our furry friends. These have made the last 25 years so rewarding and enjoyable.”

From 1 April, the DOGUE Cover Dog competition will open, with customers able to log on to the website to register their pooch in the competition and look book to be unveiled in May.

Customers are invited to attend any of DOGUE’s nine stores in NSW, Victoria, and Queensland between 4-6pm on Thursday 2 March to share in DOGUE’s birthday celebrations. There will be afternoon tea, Instafamous guests, treats for everyone’s gorgeous canines, give aways and a snap sale of 25 per cent of all DOGUE Design products in-store.

DOGUE will be continuing to celebrate its birthday with stands at RSPCA Million Paws Walk in Albert Park (VIC), Sydney Olympic Park (NSW) and University of Queensland.
