Our Story

Here at Happy Hounds, our love for animals began at an early age. Our founder, Nat Durack, grew up with family dogs and cats, giant pet snails, foxes in the living room and even pet pigeons! This passion for animals and the environment led Natalie to completing a Bachelor of Science, majoring in wildlife biology, alongside a Bachelor of Business. 

Natalie’s desire to care for all creatures great and small is what forms the core of Happy Hounds. Natalie and the Happy Hounds team always strive to go above and beyond what you would expect of a typical dog walker or pet minder. Our goal is to provide you with quality pet care that leaves you knowing that your furry, scaly and spiky family members are in safe and capable hands. 

Meet the Team

We provide several services that are performed by our one of our pet care specialists. Every team member is police and referenced checked, fully insured, pet first aid certified and hand-picked by Natalie.

We are lucky to have a team of amazing animal lovers, that are ready to care for your furry family members as they would their own.
