 Looking at life with a woof, wiggle and wag!

At Wag the Dog, our mission is simple; to help owners and their dogs live in harmony through education, exercise, training and affection - all the key things a dog needs to be a happy and satisfied pack member!

Welcome to Wag the Dog where we aim to make life fun and fabulous for animals and pet parents alike; education is the long term goal for us, and we believe it can only benefit organisations and shelters alike if people are more informed about the fact that having a pet is for life, whether it is providing a stable environment; exercise; a nutritious diet; training or veterinary treatment - all pets deserve the best.

Walking the walk, talking the talk...

Here at Wag the Dog, we love dogs and aim to understand them, we want to improve the quality of their life with their owners through better understanding and education of their behaviours and needs.

Our aim is to let dogs be dogs; to run, to play, to scamper and sniff, and basically do all the things that dogs love to do. We offer one on one attention, care and fun for all dogs that we provide a service to.

We pride ourselves in offering an all round service that incorporates as many aspects of your dogs life as possible and which will help to guarantee a happy, healthy pup at all times.

At Wag the Dog we really do walk the walk for your dog as well as talking the talk!

'He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.'


Pet Tech First Aid Classes

We were very proud to be amongst the first group of pet care professionals to offer Pet First Aid courses. Sadly, having relocated to the UK, we are no longer offering this service, however, there are still instructors in and around Australia, please refer to the Pet Tech website for more information on Pet Tech Pet First Aid & CPR courses.

The Pet Tech PetSaverâ„¢ class is a hugely enjoyable experience and a great asset in spreading the word about adequate and competent pet care, primarily among pet owners, but also among pet professionals.

Thinking of those in need

For every service we provided to a happy, homed dog, we donated $1.00 to a number of non-profit organisations.

We also donated goods and funds throughout the year and still provide sponsorship to a variety of organisations in Queensland including the AWLQARQ and Story Dogs all great organisations that work to help animals in crisis and, in the case of Story Dogs, help children learn to read with the aid of dogs.

We are thrilled to say that while offering our services on the Gold Coast, we raised over $8000 for animal organisations around Queensland - a big thank you to all our doggie clients and Facebook friends, without whom this would not have been possible.

We guarantee your dog will have the time of its life!
