You Can Now Bring Your Doggo Along On Your Victorian Winery Tour

We all deserve nice things, but you know who especially deserves nice things? Dogs. Dogs deserve all the very best things in this world because they’re treasures and saints and good boys. This tour company in Melbourne gets it, so they’re offering gourmet food and wine tours for you and your dog. Yep, dog tours are here, with added wine.

Gourmet Pawprints runs dog tours across some of Victoria’s most picturesque regions. Visit wineries in the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley, sit down for high tea with treats for you and your doggo or explore the countryside by foot with your furry friend by your side.

The dog tours are all catered towards you and your dog having a great day out together. There’s time for everyone to socialise and get to know each other before the tours start, and some of the more human-focused experiences include massages for the dogs while you sip on a glass of sparkling.

Travel is taken care of as well in the form of a very good bus that’s been kitted out with canine seatbelts – sorry humans, but the dogs get the window seats.

The humans are looked after too, because I guess we deserve some pampering as well. The tours are a great way to see those parts of regional Victoria that everyone says you need to visit, you’ll get to taste local treats and wines and most of the tours are vegan friendly. You’ll even walk away with gift bags and a few cute puppy shots for your Instagram. #goodboy

Gourmet Pawprints offer six dog-friendly tours including a picnic at Hanging Rock (hey, that’s the name of the film) and the ultra indulgent truffle hunt: humans are treated to a truffle tasting while the dogs are taken on a truffle hunt by a special puppy carer.

The tours run most weekends, but check the Gourmet Pawprints website for dates, starting locations and availability.
