Our Story

To understand the depth of our commitment, I’d like to tell you a little about me, Loren – the founder of Scout About Dog Walking & Pet Care.

In June 2017, a gorgeous little Kelpie puppy chose me to be her Mum. I instantly named her Scout. Why? Because I knew any puppy in my life was going to be spending a lot of time outdoors, scouting around. Whether it be bush walking, keeping up with me while mountain biking or simply socialising with other dogs, she was going to live a life of exploring and outdoor fun.

Of course, not all dogs would enjoy this lifestyle but I did a lot of research. And luckily the right puppy chose the right Mum! Suffice to say, Scout loves the activities we do. 

It was only a few short months later that I realised I wanted to provide a service where your pets can have the same level of fun and love that my Scouty does.  There are many circumstances where you may not be able to take your fur baby for a walk or you need a long-overdue holiday.  That’s where we come in.

When starting Scout About, I made a commitment that every Team Member would need to possess the ‘connection’ with animals that I believe I have.  Our Team Members are passionate about their role in helping your pets have a happy, fulfilled life.

If you’re looking for a service above and beyond ‘a dog walker, a pet feeder, a house sitter’, then we are the Team for you.
