Weekly Dog Roundup #1: Our Favorite Articles and Videos

Weekly Dog Roundup: Our Favorite Articles, Videos and Deals

Each week I’ll be sharing the best dog related stuff I’ve found on the web. I read a lot of great dog articles each week, yet they get lost so quickly in the fast paced flood of social media. I wanted to find these great articles a more permanent home so I’ve decided to start a weekly dog roundup.

I’m always open to suggestions when it comes to reading fresh new content. If you come across any great dog finds during your internet travels feel free to contact me with suggestions. Have a great weekend and give your dog a some love this Valentine’s Day.
