Jogs for Dogs is committed to the wellbeing of your dog.
Our dog walking service in Brisbane's western suburbs helps dog owners to provide their dog with regular physical and mental stimulation, and socialisation too. Our dog walks and jogs take place in stimulating natural environments. Dogs love the exciting smells of forest trails. We conduct our dog walks in Chapel Hill, Kenmore, Kenmore Hills, Brookfield, Pullenvale, Bellbowrie, Anstead, Moggill, Indooroopilly, Fig Tree Pocket, Taringa, Bardon, Auchenflower, Red Hill, Paddington, Milton, Toowong, and St Lucia.
Jogs for Dogs offer three exercise services. These include:
- Nature Walks - 40 minutes of on-lead exercise in a stimulating natural environment. Find more information on Nature Walks HERE
- Play Dates - 40 minutes of off-lead play in our yard in Chapel Hill. Find more information on our Dog Play Dates HERE.
At Jogs for Dogs we practice positive reinforcement with all dogs. This means we use treats, praise and other rewards to reinforce the desired behaviour, rather than any form of punishment.
Our customers can keep track of all dog walks, jogs and play dates through our use of a GPS mapping device 'Map My Dog Walk'. We upload maps of all our dog walks as well as photos daily, on our special Facebook page.
We care for the natural environment, and chooses to leave it as we find it. We stick to the trails, and clean up after the dogs.
Jogs for Dogs is proudly a Corporate Supporter of the RSPCA. Fifty cents from every Nature Walk is donated to the Qld RSPCA to support their work in preventing animal cruelty.
Jogs for Dogs provides a range of products to complement our dog walking service.
Our Healthy Treats provide a healthy alternative to store-bought dog treats. They are perfect for training & rewarding your dog, and as gifts for friends. Our treats are full of ingredients selected for their health benefits for dogs, and unlike most store-bought dog treats, are free of salt, sugar, corn, soy and artificial colours and preservatives.

FOUNDER - Heidi Flaxman
Heidi Flaxman started Jogs for Dogs in Canberra over 10 years ago, as a way to combine her two loves – dogs and jogging.
Heidi is passionate about health and fitness and has completed three marathons. While studying for her Masters qualification in business administration, Heidi was inspired to turn what was once a dog walking hobby into a professional business that helps dog owners to enhance the physical and mental health of their canine companions.
Heidi has been a volunteer dog walker at the SPCA in Wellington, New Zealand and more recently at the RSPCA in Brisbane.
Heidi and her family (including yellow labrador Roobe, and tabby cat Pickles) live in Chapel Hill, Brisbane. Members of Heidi’s family have included various breeds of dogs, cats, goats, chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, mice, a turtle, budgerigars, fish, ducks, and even a joey called Hop-Hop.
Heidi has a background in social marketing (health promotion), and sports administration. She also worked for many years in various roles within Australia’s Defence Headquarters, Canberra, and as a ski instructor in both Australia and Austria.
Heidi understands that your dog is an integral part of your family. She looks forward to meeting you and your dog, and helping you to meet your dog’s individual needs.
