For time-poor Melbourne dog owners who don’t get the chance to take their pooches on adventures or walks during the week, the services of Tom & Captain are now available in the city.
Tom & Captain specialises in multi-terrain off-lead group adventures and have launched a retail shop offering adventure gear for dogs and humans consisting of everything needed for a hike with your pet pooch.
“The Tom and Captain store is a HQ with a select retail offering of adventure products for dogs and as well humans. We cover everything you need when heading off We have tried and tested all the products on our daily adventures out and about with the dogs,” ” says owner Tom Lillecrapp.
“We are all about dogs experiencing the environment while their owners are at work. It’s about getting the dogs to places the owner may not have time to Monday – Friday to mud, rivers, beaches and bushland and only off the lead… how it should be!”
Tom & Captain’s new HQ is part of the display suite and lifestyle gallery for new development West End.
“More and more people are looking to live in developments that support their lifestyle, not limits it. As a dog owner myself, having a happy and healthy pet is really important to me and I know I’m not alone in this. So we’ve built a dog adventure service into our permanent offering at West End,” says Trenerry Property director Robert DiCintio.
“To help bring this to life immediately, we’ve partnered with Tom and Captain to launch their first retail store at the West End Lifestyle Gallery and provide local dogs with off-lead, multi-terrain adventures. Tom and Captain are not your average dog walking business and West End is not your average multi-use precinct. West End will be apartment living, lived differently and we apply that to all residents, including those will four legs.”
