People say that cats are the internet's favourite animal, but today, August 26th, is International Dog Day. We've fetched some great Canadian websites (notice the .CA!) that are doing things like bringing together communities of dog owners online, highlighting services such as pet photography, and promoting dog-themed events.
Lo and behold, here are my findings from my very important dog research!
Canadian dog blogs and websites
Daily Dogs (dailydogs.ca)
This is a Canadian Dog Blog that shares dog product reviews and more.
"Quality dog products and quality dogs, that's what Daily Dogs is all about."
The Dog Network (thedognetwork.ca)
This is a community-based website designed by dog owners for dog owners.
After searching the web trying to find new places to exercise their German Shepherd Avy, Stacey and Matt wanted to create a single resource where dog owners could go to find off-leash dog parks in the Greater Vancouver Area.
Talent Hounds (talenthounds.ca)
What started as a TV series exploring the changing roles of dogs and how they enrich our lives has grown into an online community for dog lovers.
