Hanrob Playgrounds, the first doggy day care at a Westfield shopping centre, opened at Westfield Warringah Mall last week.

The 700sqm space features three playgrounds full of trees, rocks, and log tunnels, and a soundproof, quiet room for pets looking for some down time.

Andrew Biggs, CEO, Hanrob Playgrounds, said the philosophy of Hanrob is centred around the wellbeing of dogs.

“At the foundation of creating our new Hanrob Playgrounds was ensuring the experience delivers improved wellbeing to the dogs in our care. Everything we do in this new environment at Westfield Warringah Mall is centred around the dog’s wellbeing and for both pet and owner to enjoy their experience with us.”

Owners will have access to the daycare through the car park and can book for two hours, four hours, or eight hours. The site also features an in-house grooming salon and a premium retail offer.

Andrew Davidson, Centre Manager, Westfield Warringah Mall, said with pets now more than ever part of people’s lives, it is important they meet the needs of their customers.

“We are thrilled to welcome Hanrob Playgrounds and launch a doggy daycare in one of our centres for the first time. We can’t wait to see our community connect with the Hanrob Playgrounds brand and take advantage of this fantastic service that enables customers to drop their pet off while they shop.”
