“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”

Roger Caras (photographer and writer)

Every dog needs exercise and regular exercise can improve their mental stimulation and reduce unwanted behaviours caused by anxiety or boredom.  

With one of the largest networks of open spaces in metropolitan Melbourne there is no shortage of places for doggy adventures in Manningham and all dogs are walked in parks unless you request otherwise.

We will cater for your dog’s individual needs and make adjustments for breed type, age, fitness or injury. We are flexible with our hours and operating from 6.30am - 7.30pm ensures we can avoid the mid day heat during summer. 

We will be there to make sure your dog/s gets their exercise at the park when you can’t be there. All dogs are safely transported behind a dog barrier or harnessed in the back seat.

Dogs can be walked alone or with another dog. If your dog likes furry friend and a bit of socialisation then Layne or another compatible dog can be walked with your dog.   

30 minute walk - $25

45 minute walk - $35

Extra dog $5
