Other 'Fun'tastic Activities

'Pawga' is India's first pet yoga practice for both human and animal welfare. At Pawga, one practices beginner's yoga as puppies/kittens from the shelter run around them. All the pets at Pawga are available for adoption and fostering. Pawga was founded with the intention that humans spend time with animals, understand to stay in the moment, and release any stress they hold on to. Puppies who seldom get to meet humans at shelters can overcome early-stage depression by becoming more social as they meet humans regularly through Pawga. A percentage of the proceeds from the tickets are donated to the shelter's animals. 

'Dogathon' is a one-kilometer mini-marathon for companion dogs and their parents. It is a race in which pet parents make their pets run/walk as humans do in a marathon. 

'Hycan Groomania' allows one to demonstrate trimming and grooming skills on Model Dogs or Live Dogs, expressing ideas in Salon Free Style that will be judged by renowned multi-award 

winning grooming expert James Bennett, CEO, James Bennett Grooming Academy (Australia), and Chief 

Faculty, Academy of Grooming Arts (Hyderabad). He is also an award-winning entrepreneur, poodle breeder, and industry leader, with his salon, La Casa De Pooch, selected 'Brisbane's Best Grooming Salon' in 2022 for the second year in a row.
