Why Samford is one of the best suburbs for dog owners
June 22, 2017 Samford Pet Resort

Just 30 minutes from Brisbane CBD, Samford is an ideal suburb for dogs – and other pets alike.

Why, you ask? Well, for one, we are located there (hehe) But there are plenty of other reasons to bring your dog over to the picturesque Samford Valley!

Walking Tracks & Greenery Galore

Between Brian Burke Reserve, Samford Conservation Park and Samford Creek, there’s certainly no shortage of scenic walking tracks and green spaces. Whether you want a track to take your dog for a civilised stroll, or some lush park grounds to go crazy playing frisbee, Samford has you covered.


Dog-friendly Cafes

If you’ve never had brunch at Spokes Cafe, we highly recommend putting it on your to-go-to list. Their food is delicious and the staff are super friendly… But the best part of all? You can take your dog! They’re located at 19 Main Street, Samford Village.

Day Trips to Mt Nebo or Mt Glorious

Being in relatively close proximity to both Mt Nebo and Mt Glorious is another bonus of living in Samford. Pack a picnic lunch, pop your pup in the car and head off for a day of exploration. Mountainous views, the wind in your fur… uh, we mean hair… and an all-in-all great day out.


Play dates with us!

We love doggos at Samford Pet Resort. And we love having new doggos visit and stay with us. Our pet resort is set on 40 acres overlooking the Samford Valley, and boy-oh-boy is it picturesque. With yards worth of grass to run on, we can guarantee your dog will be sure to love it just as much as we do! See for yourself:





Don’t live in Samford, and don’t have enough time to drive your pet to us? No problem! We offer a free weekday pet pick-up & drop-off service to make busy pet owners’ lives a little easier. Give us a call to discuss more.

If you live over the northside of Brisbane and would prefer to send your pet somewhere closer to home, check out our sister company Northshore Pet Resort! You’ll be sure to get equally as good care there as you do with us.
