Hi! I’m Shirley,

based in Western Sydney.

Now in the Eastern Suburbs


SOCIAL PET is proud to be Sydney’s most unique loved pet services. Over the last eighteen years, we’ve grown from a casual dog walker into Sydney's finest canine companions small business, based on the idea of integrity and personalized care – to our four legged friends.


Founder Shirley Buczak is a university student that has followed her passion for animals. Well educated in the science industry and growing education in the animal world.

The humble launch was in the late 1990's with just a lead and worn joggers, quickly became a loved dog's retreat from home.


Having a passion for a pet but never able to afford one of her own, she started walking family friends dogs and became loved by the animals. Her first ambition to start the small business was when her first dog she walked would wait for her at the bus stop she got off from school, "Misha" the Siberian Husky.


We’re are small family team of dog walkers who love what we do! We understand what your four legged friends are saying when you leave home for the day, " I wish I can go with you too". This is why we are here, we are your pets social friend.
