our guiding principles
- Treating dogs as lifelong companions
- Preferring biologically and species appropriate care
- Respecting individual behaviours and needs
- Developing the mental wellbeing of dogs
- Striving for freedom from pain and disease
- Promoting health and vitality
From our founder
If you’re like me, you already know that your doggo deserves the best🥇. I’ve spent years hopping all over the Internet and our urban villages, seeking out the best products, services and information for my own dogs. How could I not put that all together for other dog-obsessed, puppy lovin’, tail wagging aficionados?

Frustrations with digging obsessed dogs range from simple annoyances for people through to escapist artists that dig their way out of backyards and are at risk of endangering themselves. Digging can be part of normal behaviour by dogs. It can also be a symptom of other underlying issues. Identifying the cause of the digging is…
Dog training and behavioural improvements are often best assisted by a qualified professional to support you and your dog. However, there are some basic steps that any person should be able to try out if they’re introducing two dogs to each other. Why can’t dogs go at it and sort it out themselves? Meeting like…
Fortunately, bonding between human and dog usually happens swiftly and with ease. It’s generally easier to do it at younger ages, but, that’s not always the case. And, sometimes individual circumstances will mean it’s extra hard to build a bond where underlying issues exist from abuse or neglect. Individuality can also play a big part…
There’s something that makes apartment dwellers and office workers shudder with absolute fear. Social media video showing closed lift doors of an owner on one side – and the dog on the other. A heart wrenching and terrifying thing as we imagine all the times we’ve used a lift and avoided this catastrophe. Luckily some…
As far as has been discovered, dogs were domesticated before any other species. This makes them not only our “best friend” – but one of our oldest friends as well. Modern dogs are certainly distant to their non-domesticated past of over 11,000 years ago. However, we still see strong similarities at a genetic level as…
It’s been a difficult year for many people with social, work, and travel restrictions. Pets (as always) have helped us cope with our emotions and especially so during lockdowns around the world due to the pandemic and COVID-19. While undoubtedly a tough year for us, has it also been a tough year for pets? Overall,…
Direct, lived experience shared in the dog community has its part to play alongside appropriate advice from Vets and qualified professionals.

We bring you great products.
A premium and curated collection of responsible products that consider the health and well being of your dog and our environment. Preferring locally sourced products for the unique needs of our Australian community.
We make learning easy.
Learning is life long. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first puppy or you’ve been living with dogs for years – there are various life stages and subjects where we could all do with learning the latest new skills. Things like various feeding programs, caring for sick and convalescent dogs, play and exercise, behavioural improvements and many more subjects to come.
Classes will be split across multiple months to make sure it fits around your schedule and will combine online learning with a beautifully presented selection of printed materials and products to enjoy with your dog.
We promise to make it fun and interesting and really excited to bring this to you soon. We’re developing these programs now and will open an early preview in a few shorts months from now at the beginning of 2021.
