About

What we believe in.

We believe every dog deserves a happy life! They usually don’t ask much…a bit of time with their friends at the park, discover new places with you and occasional treat for being a good boy or a girl.

What we do.

We help you to spend more quality time with your dog! This means less time searching for dog friendly places and more time playing and exploring the world together.

Our Story

When Lumi the Groodle joined our family we were thrilled! He is very energetic as all the puppies are and loves meeting other dogs as well as their human parents. It soon become clear though that we were not welcome to many of our usual places anymore simply because we now had a furry friend. “You can leave him out tied to a lamp post” or “Sorry, no dogs” were typical answers we were faced with.

After spending days of searching for dog friendly places such as bars, cafes, beaches, accommodation, hikes, camping… we realised that there actually are many dog friendly places around. They are just super difficult to find. Pupsy was born!

We started calling places and to make sure they truly are dog friendly we visited hundreds of them with Lumi, who is now our Head of Quality.

Today you can find over 3000 dog friendly places in Australia across multiple categories such as pubs, wineries, campgrounds, beaches, cafes and holiday homes on Pupsy. And more are added in every week!
