Our Philosophy

Meet The Team

Kerry….Chief Gourmet Officer

Kerry designed Gourmet Pawprints to bring her passion of food and wine to dog lovers. Kerry has a Diploma in Canine Communication and a keen eye for detail and planning, the creation of the business has been an amazing journey. It was an easy choice for Kerry to leave the mundane corporate world to go exploring in the wine regions of Victoria. Some might say, why hadn’t she thought of this sooner.

Bella…. the Dog Welcoming Bus

Dog Friendly Experiences is what we do and we couldn't do it without Bella. She is spacious and comfortable for all guests. Sit back and enjoy the view and we even don't mind if our 4 legged guests want to lick the windows! With 45 luxury coach style seats there is plenty of room for everyone.

Diesel….Chief Paw Officer

I am the face behind Gourmet Pawprints, pretty cool huh! I was raised in a loving Kelpie rescue until Mumma came along to bring me to my fur-ever home when I was 8 weeks old. I am an only fur-kid, so I pretty much rule the roost. I have a bed in the office Chesterfield for when I need to supervise.

Michaela

The heart and soul behind making everything pawfect for our guests, venues and team.

Robyne

Visual Designer extordinaire. It takes a special talent to interpret what we do and explain this in a feel good way.

Jane

With so many years of customer service to offer, you will be in great hands with Jane, whether she is your Dog Carer or Bella Driver

Sharon

With over 5 years experience caring for dogs at the RSPCA, Sharon just knows how to relax a pooch.

Elouise

Bella is one lucky bus to have Elouise making her shine and smell great. You might even see her on tours as a Dog Carer or in parks handing out flyers.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy is the cornerstone of how we deliver a memorable experience and interact as a team:

Happy: We will deliver a welcoming, inclusive and fun environment which allows us to enjoy being with our dogs.

Healthy: We will deliver an experience which focuses on a healthy environment that demonstrates respect for each other, regardless of how many legs you have.

Safe: We will deliver the highest standard of safety to ensure everyone’s wellbeing.

Giving Back

Because Dogs Need Trees…..

Bella the dog welcoming bus is proud to donate one tree for every tour/event to help offset carbon emissions. We make this donation to Greenfleet, a not for profit organisation. Because we know dogs need trees!

Greenfleet is Australia’s most respected source of biodiverse carbon offsets. As a non-profit organisation, Greenfleet is dedicated to connecting people with real climate action. Since 1997, Greenfleet has planted more than 8.7 million native trees across 425 biodiverse forests in Australia and New Zealand to offset carbon emissions. As they grow, these native forests capture carbon pollution from the atmosphere, provide vital habitat to native wildlife, conserve biodiversity and generate resilience to climate change in the landscape.
