Before the movie was on, dogs could be seen sitting on their owner’s laps and some people even took selfies.

Dogs and their owners enjoyed the paw-fect bonding session at New Zealand’s first dog-friendly indoor movie session.

Pet owners and man’s best friend watched The Secret Life of Pets 2 at Academy Cinemas in Auckland CBD on Saturday. 

Before curling up on their owners’ laps or settling into their own seats, dogs attending the movie session got to know each other beforehand and had their photos taken by “pup-arazzi”. 

Some dogs spent their Saturday watching The Secret Life of Pets 2.

Coulston said the event quickly sold out, with all 211 tickets being fetched

She said the idea came to her when she was sitting and waiting at the movies with her partner.

“I said ‘oh my gosh, this would be a great idea if we could bring our dogs to the movies’,” Coulston said.

Some dogs had a snack before the movie began.

“He’d just snuggle up and sit on our knees the whole time – we’ve kind of always thought it’d be really cool if we could get to that stage where you can just take your friend and they can sleep at your feet while you’re at the movies.”

A spokesman for Academy Cinemas said it had been excited to host the event.

“Academy Cinemas has cultivated a reputation over the years for being daring and innovative with our programming. This screening is just the tip of the iceberg of exciting events we’ve got planned throughout the year,” he said.

The charity event sold its 211 tickets in a matter of days.
