Here’s where you can get your pet’s picture taken with Santa in Mississauga

Each and every year, parents take their children to local shopping centres to sit on Santa’s knee and tell him everything they want for Christmas.

Not unexpectedly, that tradition has spread to pet parents, and multiple local shopping centres offer a few nights where dogs and cats (and perhaps other creatures with paws) can telepathically communicate their material desires to St. Nick (or least pose for an adorable picture that can be put on a coffee mug). 

If you want your cat or dog to take an adorable picture with Santa, you can take him or her to either Square One or Erin Mills Town Centre this holiday season.

If you plan on hitting Square One, you should note that Santa is available for pet pictures on the following days: 

  • Sunday, November 24
  • 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Monday, November 25
  • 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Sunday, December 1
  • 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Monday, December 2
  • 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Sunday, December 8
  • 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
  • Monday, December 9
  • 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM

Square One says the nights are open to pets with paws only and that reservations are required.

Guests and their pets participating in Pet Night with Santa must enter and exit the shopping centre using Entrance 6. Pets must always be on a leash or in an animal carrier at their owner’s side. Pets must be controlled at all times and not left unattended. 

If you live in the city’s west-end, you can visit Erin Mills Town Centre for pet pictures with Santa.

On its Facebook page, EMTC says that a few appointments are still available for next weekend. You can take your pet to visit Santa on Saturday, Nov. 23 and Sunday, Nov. 24 from 6-9 pm.

Phone guest services at 905-569-1981 to schedule your appointment.
