Hello fellow dog lover,

If you’re reading this chances are there’s a special hound or two in your life. You want to know that the people you entrust your dog with are going to adore them as much as you do. We are those people!

Madame Leash began in 2011 when I was wearing a very different hat. Working as a Primary School teacher I became burnt out and took (what I thought was going to be) a short break from the classroom and volunteered at a local animal shelter. I loved it more than I could have ever imagined. When I was offered a paid position I jumped at the opportunity. The job cemented my love and understanding of dogs. I gained a great respect for all dogs and loved watching their faces light up when it was time to release them from their pens and walk them. I imagined being greeted by those smiles on a bigger scale. 

Madame Leash was born of the fact that every dog deserves to get out and be a dog! I knew I wanted to enjoy that one on one times with dogs and for that reason decided to offer exclusively single household outings. For 3 years I built up a loyal client base and worked, well… like a dog! I decided that to keep doing the great work I needed to build a team. In 2014 Madame Leash started interviewing vet nurses, Zoology students, doggy day care attendants. Fast forward to today; Madame Leash now has a trusted team of animal professionals who not only love dogs, but know dogs. Only the best of the best become team members.

We are all so passionate about providing the best dog walking Melbourne service and care for all dogs!

Hope to see you at the park soon!

Lauren and the team x


Madame Leash offers one-on-one care for your dog, whatever that means for them. A walk, a party at the dog park, dog-sitting or just some couch time and pats while you’re at work. Lauren and her team of professional carers love building genuine relationships with dogs and understanding their needs as well as their people do.
