Our team

Without the people behind our core mission, it would be impossible to provide to you the product reliability and excellent customer service we're known for. We are proud to have extremely good people running each respective facet of our business to make it possible.

The owner of a forge and wanna be blacksmith, Mark loves shopping for gadgets that make BZZZZ sounds and camping with his three boys. He has a partial fondness for Neil Young, perpetual praise for Leonard Cohen and eternal love for Harley Davidsons.

You know it’s going to be a whole lot of fun when Becka & Reggie are around. These two Staffies can make new friends with the turn of a head, and take their Pupstomer Service role very seriously – that’s if you consider playing fetch and napping work…

Surfing Dog Championships

Back when it all began in 2012, the first ever VetShopAustralia Surfing Dogs started as a playful workshop in the still waters of Noosa Dog Beach. Now known as the famous event in the Noosa Festival of Surfing, the Surfing Dog Championships brings an audience by the 1000's. Our exceptionally talented hydro-hounds and their masters shred the waves of Noosa, First Point and it sure is a sight not to be missed! Leading the pack for another year running is none other than surfing dog trainer extraordinaire and former world tandem surfing champion, Chris De Aboitiz.
