Our Story

Since 2008, we have dedicated our time and effort to creating content to help new and experienced pet parents alike. It all started as a public diary to document all the experiences we had raising our pets. As time passed, it evolved into a resource for different kinds of dog-related information. 

We have successfully helped thousands of pet owners all over the world since we started with our guides and tips. Also, we have written dog training guides, news, product reviews and even organized online competitions for dogs since that time.
