New Doggy Play Park sets tails wagging!

Doggy Play Park officially launched in Melbourne this April ...

Melbourne’s newest and only private dog park of its kind has finally opened its gates in the south eastern suburbs. 

Positioned on a large, five-acre spacious land in Heatherton, Doggy Play Park has created an incredible environment which both your dogs and you will never want to leave!

The brainchild of Miranda Bailey - a third year student studying Occupational Therapy at Monash University - and her sister Shannon who recently started her own successful dog walking business, Paws at Play Dog Walking.

Given the constant issues arising in public dog parks, they wanted to provide the public with a place where the dog-friendly community can take their dogs, knowing they will stay safe, stimulated and can have a run around worry-free!

Doggy Play Park currently consists of two separate 1.5 acre areas. This is a secured environment where dogs of all breeds, sizes and personalities are welcomed.

How does Doggy Play Park work?

Doggy Play Park will be a member-only park, where owners will be able to sign up and create a ‘Doggy Profile’ on a membership website that is due to go live in a few weeks’ time. 

All dogs will undergo a screening process, where owners will be required to upload immunisation forms. This is to ensure all members feel peace of mind knowing all that their doggy play mates are safe and screened! 

Doggy Play Park’s members will have online access to the weekly schedule, where they will be able to book their dogs into the suitable time slots available each day, ranging from:

✔️ Small dogs
✔️ Medium and large dogs
✔️ Mixed sizes
✔️ Greyhounds
✔️ Private time sessions 

Consider the park your very own doggy gym! Membership options will include: 

  • Social memberships: access to the weekly schedule and social time slots.
  • Private memberships: access to private time slots each week (suitable for anxious or aggressive dogs) 
  • Casual memberships: option to purchase 5 or 10 entries either socially or privately. 
  • Group bookings: time slots are also available for large group bookings to hire out the park - perfect for breed groups, dog birthday parties, you name it! 

What can you expect at Doggy Play Park?

#1. The Agility Park 
This first park was designed to be vibrant, full of fun and features for your dogs to have a ball, literally!

Whether it be digging through the sandpit, flying into the ball pit, leaping over jumps or sprinting through tunnels, the owners have created an environment to stimulate all of your dog's senses.

#2. The Open Park 

This second park has been purposely left spacious, open and safe for those who enjoy gaining a bit more speed!

It is more suited to Greyhounds and the eager ball chasers, with a spacious, doggy proof area left free of equipment to cater for these breeds and speeds.

There are plans to expand and open a third park on the property in the future.
