our story

Meet Your Local Dog Social Crew

Say hello to Henry and Santi, our co-founders who ditched their suits for leashes to start The Dog Social in Manly. Inspired by the story of the Mexican fisherman, they chose a life full of good vibes and wagging tails.

Henry, a pet enthusiast with over a decade in the pet industry, and Santi, a corporate startup aficionado, have called Manly home for over twenty years. They met a decade ago at their kids’ soccer game and have been best friends since. They left the corporate race to focus on what brings them joy—looking after dogs and connecting with the community.

During one of their strolls, they noticed a gap in the market for a convenient place for dog owners. And so, The Dog Social was born—a haven where dogs can be dogs, and their owners can unwind and socialise.

The Dog Social is their dream come to life, a place where grooming, play, and training are done with heaps of love and care. Henry and Santi have found their happy place and invite you and your furry pals to join. Drop by The Dog Social, where every day is about making tails wag and humans smile.
