About us

Want to find dog-friendly activities and businesses on a map?

Good. Because that’s exactly what this site is all about.

This website is a map-based activity and business directory for dog owners. Launched in 2016 to provide a community for dog lovers in Queensland. The site is constantly evolving to help you to find dog-friendly activities and businesses.

My passion is responsible dog ownership and helping you find fun things to do with your dog.

So who is behind QLDDogs.com.au?

Glad you asked! QLDDogs was founded by me, Joey Stam (that’s me and my chocolate Labrador Retriever Indy in that photo). I have been a ‘dog-person’ my whole life and began volunteering with Delta Society Australia at a kids hospital in Brisbane since 2011 as an active therapy dog team volunteer.

I realised there was a need for a simple website to find places to go with my dog. Each time we wanted to go camping, or were looking for a dog-friendly beach my wife Sabine and I would be doing the same searches on the web over and over again. We never managed to find one simple map that would allow us to find dog-friendly activities for the whole family.

This website is a place where you can look up maps to discover new things to do or businesses to help you look after your pet(s).

How you can help?

We need your help to make sure our information is as good and accurate as possible. You can do this by adding reviews and ratings, sending in photos, claiming a business listing and updating the details or just sending us a message that something needs updating.
