Westfield Warringah Mall in Sydney’s north has been joined by, Hanrob Playgrounds, the first doggy daycare and retail store available at Westfield.

Hanrob is a 40-year-old Australian family-owned specialist provider of professional pet care, offering premium pet accommodation for short and long-term stays, obedience dog training, dog daycare, animal transport and vocational education. 

For the first time, Hanrob is expanding its business offering to retail, offering doggy playgrounds, day-care facilities, professional grooming, and premium retail services. 

At 700 square metres, 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.

Westfield Warringah Mall Centre Manager, Andrew Davidson said, “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.

“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.” 

Hanrob Playgrounds CEO, Andrew Biggs added, “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.” 

Customers have direct access to Hanrob Playgrounds from the car park, with customers able to book playtime for two hours, half a day (four hours) or full day (eight hours), while they shop, dine, or relax.   

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