My History

Thanks for visiting! My name is Jayson and I am an avid lover of all things pets, and especially dogs! Growing up, my father was allergic to dogs and I could never have one when I was young. So as soon as I could, I got a cocker spaniel puppy named Jordan in 2014.

Having never owned a dog (and especially a young puppy!) I had much to learn! So I have spent the last few years of my life researching and learning by hands on experience how to take care of my little guy and hope to share much of that information with you.

My History

Hello! My name is Ken. I have had pets forever. All sorts. Mostly cats, but also had a collie, and a cocker spaniel. Also, we keep various lizards and other smaller pets.

As a nature lover, I also have a deep appreciation for wildlife. The outdoors is wonderful and seeing animals in their natural habitats is beautiful.

On the homefront, married with a son. I work as a professional writer and do some computer and website programming. We currently have two cats – brothers – and it’s a joy watching them prowl around and just do cute cat things. They are indoor cats. I think they would get lost if they went out.

Thanks for reading the quality articles here!

My History

Hey there! My name is Mollie and I am responsible for the vast majority of the content on the site. A little about me- I have been a writer for years and a dog owner for life. I have shared a home with borzois, bouviers des flandres, silky terriers, English mastiffs, rottweilers, shepherds and many, many mutts… and have worked with an even more diverse range of breeds. Aside from nearly always having my own, I have also helped other people with their pups through training and running my own pet sitting operation.

Today, I am now the proud mother of a boxer named ‘Loki’ and his recently adopted brother, a Czechoslovakian vlcak named ‘Lupin.’

Dogs bring so much richness to our lives through unconditional love, their willingness to work and their unparalleled loyalty. We owe it to our dogs to do our very best in caring for their every need. I hope that by sharing what I’ve learned through years of owning and training dogs, I can help you build an even stronger, healthier, happier bond with your canine companion.

I have worked with animals in a variety of professional contexts over the last 20 years, including as a wildlife educator and as the executive director of a nature preserve where I cared for a large and diverse live animal collection.
