Dogspeed is a pet taxi based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. We offer a pet transport service as well as dog walking. For more information please have a look at the pet taxi and dog walking pages, or give us a call.

Dogspeed is owned and operated by Jane Tyler. Jane has many years experience working with dogs through her volunteer work at Monika’s Doggie Rescue, Ingleside as well as her time as an attendant at Scruffy’s Doggie Daycare, Brookvale (formerly Scoobydooz). For many years she was involved in the corporate world, first as a transport planner and then as an economist but has left that behind to pursue her passion.

Jane has been working with animals since 2008. She holds a certificate in Canine Psychology and Behaviour from the Institute for Pet Care Studies in the UK.

Dogspeed is fully insured.
