Founded in 2020, we are a small Australian company building a safer and simpler way to buy your dog online.
We understand the process of finding a puppy can be a 'ruff' experience. So many websites, no transparency around ethical standards, and no support along the way! And this is a big problem, not just for us humans. Many of the issues dogs face - from health concerns, to behavioural problems, and even ending up in shelters - can be traced back to a difficult start in life.
We believe the single biggest difference you can make to a dog's life, and the wider industry, is at the very start.
This is why we're building a better beginning - we are revolutionising this industry and building the future for responsible pet ownership. One pup at a time. Our mission is to help every dog and every owner start off on the right paw.
Adelaine has a breadth of experience building marketplace solutions. She is determined to help people find responsible breeders through virtual vetting technologies, empower a new generation of puppy parents and is looking forward to digitalise and disrupt the process of buying a pet online. She has fallen in love with Finnish Lapphunds since discovering the breed.
Nathan used to be a journalist, and loves to tell stories. Particularly stories that inspire people to make a change for the better. He’s worked on building sustainable products for some of the biggest companies in the world, and is now on a mission to build the best start in life for dogs everywhere. He is also a bit of a fanboy when it comes to Beagles.
