Dog Friendly Experiences on Bella the Dog Welcoming Bus

Take the lead and explore Victoria on our unique dog friendly experiences being chauffeured on Bella the dog welcoming bus. Our tours are boutique, small group and are carefully designed to bring you an effortless adventure with your dog. Some of the lovely walks we enjoy are only possible because Bella is waiting at the other end so weary paws can rest. Our talented and professional team are committed to ensuring a Happy, Healthy and Safe experience, because we get what it means to be a fur-parent. All pooches get the window seat - where licking the scenery is encouraged!

What Peeps and Paws Are Saying About Our Experiences

Emi and Cedric – March 2022

"What a beautiful way to spend a Sunday…friends, doggies, wine and lunch! Our hosts for the day, Kerry and Ben, created a friendly, relaxing environment for both humans and dogs. The dogs loved their treats and doggie massages. I highly recommend this experience. We are looking forward to enjoying more adventures with Gourmet Pawprints."

Luis – Jan 2022

Max – Feb 2022

"This was absolutely stunning relaxing and wonderful. From the weather which was brilliant, to the whole day and lunch it was just perfect. I come from Bendigo for these tours I cannot find a favourite I love them all. Kerry is so caring makes us all relax and it is one of the best experiences ever!I love love sharing with my dog and see him happy."

Kobie – Feb 2022

"Kobie and I enjoyed a lot with our first tour with Gourmet Pawprints. The food.. the venue.. the activities… the staff (Ben and Kerry) and the other dog parents are very nice… definitely worth it!"

Violet – Jan 2022

"Such a great experience! We did the Melba Trail Doggy Winery Tour and enjoyed it thoroughly. Highly recommend Gourmet pawprints! My dog is a little timid and sometimes I’m worried taking her somewhere with many other dogs but I felt at ease in the professional and caring hands of Kerry and Ben. All in all such a beautiful day- delicious wine and lunch, wonderful views and funny stories. Last but not least a beautiful group of people with big hearts."
