Salty Dawg was established in 2013 by myself – Luke, and my girlfriend – Sam. We initially were just walking our own dogs – Wallace (9yr old Labrador x Spaniel) and Charlie (8yr old Beagle x Spaniel) around North Sydney – and noticed we could offer an alternative to the Sydney dog walking and dog training market with our backgrounds and love for dogs.
Having worked for 11 years in the Navy as a Clearance Diver, I wanted to apply the same values and principles I’d learnt in the Navy, to our dog walking and training business – offering an exceptional level of service with a great reputation for quality and care. I am now a qualified Alpha Canine Professional Dog Trainer and believe the key to a happy, healthy dog is exercise, discipline and affection.
As an Art Director, Sam has spent the past 12 years building big brands we’ve all grown to love and more recently focused her skills on helping charities do the same. Her vision for Salty Dawg has been to create a truly authentic and recognizable brand that delivers on what it stands for – quality, care and professional service.
So together, we at Salty Dawg promise to always turn up, we do our best to always be available, we will only walk 4 dogs per walker, we only use new vehicles especially equipped for the safety of the dogs and invest heavily in training so that our team are extremely professional and skilled – working to the same standards as myself. We have public liability insurance and follow our strict guidelines to ensure the dogs in our care are safe and well cared for at all times.
We both truly look forward to meeting you and your beloved pooch sometime soon!
