Pupbeat all began one windy Melbourne day with the unexpected adoption of Indy, a 4 month old golden retriever. In between scrambling to acquire doggy beds and travelling interstate to pick her up, we somewhat overlooked that we knew nothing about the Melbourne dog scene. Literally nothing. Having recently moved from Canberra, we didn’t even know what was popular with humans, let alone where we could go with dogs. Finding parks, training schools, vets, dog-friendly cafes was all a case of searching online for the nearest one and hoping for the best. Websites were difficult to use, inaccurate and just generally soul destroying.
After using a website to find fenced parks and repeatedly arriving to find they were only partly fenced, we decided enough was enough. It was time to create something to help us out! And so, within a few months, the Pupbeat Off Leash Parks App was born. From there, Pupbeat grew into the directory, blog and all round doggy guide you see before you.
