Paws and Pubs

Our NEW Paws and Pubs Experience brings together fabulous walks and great food. Come and explore Victoria and Melbourne with your dog where each tour is a mystery destination - oh how much fun it will be to find out on the day where we are going! There are 7 dates and 7 destinations and we won't visit the same place twice. We have done all the hard work (OK this was really fun for Diesel!), finding the most scenic walks and great pubs. Each tour will include morning tea, a guided walk with our talented team of approx 5-8km (with shorter options available), being chauffeured on Bella The Dog Welcoming Bus and the option to purchase lunch of your choice. Spend the day with like minded Peeps and Paws - simply Pawfect

The mystery is the adventure!

We start the day with morning tea at our home in Spotswood. Then it is all aboard Bella to a mystery location in Regional Victoria or Melbourne. An easy grade guided walk of approx 5-8km with options of shorter distances or just stay on Bella - what ever you feel like. Then it is off to a pub for lunch where you can choose to purchase from their menus. There will be plenty of time to spend with new and existing friends before Bella takes you back home again. Dogs are with you for lunch in courtyard/beer garden. Should the weather not be kind, then our team will be ready for the pooches on board Bella with snuggly massage.
