Balancing Act Adelaide is a small award-winning consultancy specialising in pet-friendly planning for public spaces, dog parks, aged care facilities and medium to high-density living. We build stronger connections between urban planning, companion animals and responsible pet ownership.
We prepare animal management plans, on-leash and off-leash strategies, policy for pets in aged care facilities and collaborate with allied professionals to plan and design public spaces for dogs and people. Our approach is to consider both dog and human needs and social interactions and link dog behaviour to planning and design processes.
We work with state government, local councils, private sector, aged care providers and animal welfare organisations across Australia to create pet-friendly buildings, streetscapes, open space and communities.
