Puppy Love Sundays

Happy Howl-o-ween

Join us with your pup for a Super
Spook-tacualar Howel-O-Ween!!

There’ll be prizes, tricks for treats and an opportunity to get your pup’s pic taken by a pro!  Save the date and get planning your pooch’s costume!!  The cuteness is gonna be killer!

This Day we also welcome the wonderful charity Pet Refuge!

Thank you to our Sponsors  who have supported this event:


Pet Refuge provides temporary shelter and care for pets affected by domestic violence, keeping them safe while their owners escape abuse.

Here are some sobering statistics:

  • 22% of their children witnessed pet abuse
  • 23% had an animal killed by their partner
  • 53% delayed leaving family violence out of fear for their pet's safety
  • 73% would have found it easier to leave if there was a shelter offering temporary accommodation for their pets

"We know having animals can make it significantly harder for people to remove themselves and their children from violent households."

Dr Ang Jury - CEO Women's Refuge New Zealand

This month we welcome the amazing team from Pet Refuge.

They make it easier for sufferers of domestic  violence leave their partners to seek safety.

You can show your support for the team and Pets at Pet Refuge by visiting with them at Whoa! on the 29th.

They'll have their exclusive (and super cute!) Buzzy Bee cat wand and dog toys available for purchase on the day.  The license owners of the Buzzy Bee wooden toys have very kindly loaned Pet Refuge their brand to create these awesome toys!Buzzy Bee Toy

Pet Refuge will  also be running a raffle for a 2023 Amarok Ute!

So come along to show your support.

You can also donate monthly or one off via their website

A Passion for Animals at the Heart of Micro-Med

As a naturopathic nutritionist and lifelong animal enthusiast, Maria Brown embarked on her entrepreneurial journey alongside her partner Mike Pattinson, a skilled expert in Bio-dynamics and Permaculture. Both of them faced substantial health obstacles, which led them to believe that there had to be a more fulfilling way of living.
Check out their amazing stories here:

Their personal challenges and deep appreciation for the natural world motivated them to discover a method of harmonizing with nature through the preservation of a proper microbial balance, which ultimately promotes the overall wellness of animals.

Just like humans, a pet’s system can lose this balance, triggering inflammation as well as skin, digestive and immune health issues. MicroMed probiotic treatments help restore that microbial balance.

You can now bring your pup to Whoa! Studios on the first Sunday of every month to meet pup-experts and friends!  

Each month we will be inviting a different charitable organisation and or expert along in order to create the opportunity for families to meet the dogs they support or work with.  We are interested in supporting a range of organisations and charities, including those who work to rehome, rehabilitate, provide physical and emotional support dogs and more. 

We believe Puppy Love Sunday is a fantastic way for children and adults who may be less familiar with dogs to feel they can explore how best to engage and be around dogs.  Here's some Pack RULES to keep everyone safe and happy on the day!
