What Peeps and Paws Are Saying About Our Experiences

Brandy –June 2023

Mornington Trail

"This was an amazing experience and was a lot of fun. They were lovely and very helpful. There was plenty to see and new people to meet. Will definitely be back. ."

Peppa – Dec 2022
Dandenongs Picnic Adventure

"Peppa & I joined Bella the bus for a Dandenong ranges picnic. After a meet & greet at Port Melbourne all we had to do was sit back & relax and enjoy the view. We decided to skip the 5k walk, but had a shorter walk along the well signposted track. We arrived back at the park for a lovely picnic lunch. A very enjoyable day for both of us. "

Ronnie – March 2023

Beach Day Out

"Kerry and Ben put together a relaxed day out at Ocean Grove. Fun for the humans - and even more for the dogs. We had plenty of time to play - and get a little wet - then lunch and more play. Plus time for coffee and/or ice cream. "

Grace – Dec 2022

NYE Melba Trail Doggy Winery Tour

"Absolute wonderful day to have spent NYE 2022 with my little girl Grace and a coach full of dog lovers.Wineries were agnificent, great views, lovely wines and an awesome lunch.Kerry, Ben & Teresa gave us such a great day, extremely accommodating to my Grace’s special needs, even boarding her quite large heavy cooler bag ( her luggage) in cargo and provided her anything she needed from it all day long!!!!
This was Grace’s tour #6 and the confidence she has gained since her first tour is remarkable. Kerry and Ben have always showed her so much kindness and patience on every tour as she does like to take her time!!
Gourmet Pawprints winning 🥇 2022 at the Victorian tourism awards was so well deserved.
Can’t wait for our next tour! ."

Max – Feb 2023

Peeps and Paws High Tea

I love that my dog is pampered I also love that we are too. From start to finish we are all made to feel welcomed and looked after and we are. I feel so relaxed and a gorgeous time to spend with just my dog and myself and all like minded people. I love this so so much and would highly reccomend where ever we go it is just awesome "
