Raise the Woof: Hanrob Playgrounds opens Westfield’s first doggy daycare at Westfield Warringah Mall

Hanrob Playgrounds flagship location opens Thursday 28th October and will provide dog playground, professional grooming and premium retail offering for the first time so customers can shop and drop off.

Westfield Warringah Mall today announced the arrival of Hanrob Playgrounds, the first doggy daycare and retail store available at Westfield. An Australian- owned specialist provider of paw-fessional pet care, Hanrob Playgrounds will quickly become a firm favourite for all pet owners across the Northern Beaches.

Hanrob is a 40-year-old family-owned business offering premium pet accommodation for short and long-term stays, obedience dog training, dog daycare, animal transport and vocational education. Drawing upon decades of experience of caring for dogs, Hanrob is for the first time expanding its business offering to retail, offering doggy playgrounds, day-care facilities, professional grooming, and premium retail services.

At 700sqm, the Westfield Warringah Mall Hanrob Playgrounds features three playgrounds to cater to dogs of all sizes and temperaments, as well as a soundproof, quiet zone for pets who need time to recharge after a ruff day.

“Our Westfield Living Centres are designed to meet the needs of our customers in all stages of life – and more than ever, pets are part of people's lives,” said Westfield Warringah Mall Centre Manager, Andrew Davidson.

“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.”

CEO of Hanrob Playgrounds, Andrew Biggs said: “I’ve grown up with animals all my life and my philosophy across everything we do is: how will dogs have a better life? 

So, 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.”

The new Hanrob Playgrounds will allow dogs to make their own fluffy friends while they play amongst the trees, rocks, and log tunnels, or relax in the chill out room under a woof full of stars. 

They will be losing their tails over the paw-fessional in-house grooming salon and premium re-tail offer. The site exceeds the amount of space required and all handlers are professionally trained.

For convenience, customers will have direct access to Hanrob Playgrounds from the car park, with customers able book their dog's playtime for two hours, half a day (4 hours) or full day (8 hours), while they shop, dine, or relax.

This will be the first of several Hanrob Playgrounds to open across Australia in the coming months.

To celebrate the grand opening this Thursday 28th October, Hanrob Playgrounds will commence a schedule of fun-filled activities, events and special offers, including the following three limited time offers*:

  • Free 2-hour dog day care visit
  • 40% off dog day care 10 session passes
  • 20% off any full grooming service
From 10am until 1pm on Opening Day, Hanrob Playgrounds will welcome all two- and four- legged friends to join in the celebrations with guided tours and complimentary gift bags. A balloon animal artist and caricature artist will also be on hand to provide entertainment.
