Grossmont Center, La Mesa
Petworks, in Grossmont Center next to Zales Jewelers, opens its doors at 10:00 a.m. to customers eager to try out their pet-walking skills. With a credit card and a driver's license, anyone can take a pooch for a half-hour stroll around the mall. Choose from 30 varieties of puppies displayed in the shop. The Puppy Exerciser program continues throughout the day until all the dogs have been walked. There is no requirement to buy the dog you walk, or anything else. But if the walk is enough to make you think you might be a pet person, Petworks makes an area available for you and the pooch to get to know one another better, so you know you're buying just the right dog for you.
