About Us

Take the Dog is a directory of dog friendly locations across Australia. While I strive to have accurate and up to date information listed, it may not be as we are not notified about changes made by local councils. If you notice there is incorrect information or know of a location that is not listed, please feel free to email me on or use the contact form located here.

Message from the developer

Hi! My name is Mason Russell. I am an IT Technican at a High School and a self taught Web designer. I have a 2 year old Cattle Cross dog that is named Parker. I currently volunteer once a week at the Animal Welfare League Queensland and believe that all animals deserve a second chance. 
I built this site as I could not find any easy to use websites/apps that could display the closest dog friendly location. My aim is to make it as easy as possible for you to find the closest dog park or beach to you. As of 3rd April 2016, there are 975 dog friendly locations listed on this site. 550 of them are in Queensland and the other 425 are in New South Wales. I am constantly adding new locations every day.
