From our founder
If you’re like me, you already know that your doggo deserves the best🥇. I’ve spent years hopping all over the Internet and our urban villages, seeking out the best products, services and information for my own dogs. How could I not put that all together for other dog-obsessed, puppy lovin’, tail wagging aficionados?

Fortunately, bonding between human and dog usually happens swiftly and with ease. It’s generally easier to do it at younger ages, but, that’s not always the case.

There’s something that makes apartment dwellers and office workers shudder with absolute fear. Social media video showing closed lift doors of an owner on one side – and the dog on the other.

At its simplest, mindfulness is the practice of experiencing the present moment more fully.

While undoubtedly a tough year for us, has it also been a tough year for pets? Overall,…
Direct, lived experience shared in the dog community has its part to play alongside appropriate advice from Vets and qualified professionals.

An emerging trend in workplaces is the support of “pet-positive” pet owner practices as an employee benefit.
