About Us | Dog Loves Best

Dog Loves Best has embarked on a mission to spread information about things such as food, toys, beds, etc dogs are crazy for. We also enlighten pet owners about things such as nail trimming and teeth brushing that dogs hate to do. The information is provided with the aim of prolonging the canine’s life and ensuring that it stays healthy. The data on this website will also help you discover new ways of strengthening the bond between you and your pet dog.

About Dog Loves Best

I founded this website because as a dog-owner myself, questions kept cropping up in my mind and didn’t know who to turn to for the right answers. Growing up I was exposed to cats, and I still like them, but it is not possible for me to keep one because I am allergic to cat litter. Somebody suggested that I adopt a dog instead. After Googling for local adoption information, my first pup arrived home just after a few weeks. Suddenly, I realized I was ignorant and started looking for information online.

But the only information I was able to find was brief starter guides that did very little to throw up more information regarding our canine pals. Though the beginners’ guides did render some help, they failed to prepare me for having my own canine companions, which by now I have two.

Max, a Labrador, was the first one I adopted. He is hyper-active and forever looking to play a game of fetch, regardless of what time of day it is. He is also very affectionate and cannot help stock licking me after I return home after a hard day’s work. Max is 7 years old and there is no toy that he has not succeeded in destroying so far.

When Max turned 2, I adopted Jack, a Great Dane. Jack is a voracious eater and has ways of making it known that he is hungry and needs his breakfast or lunch. He likes to go on long walks, where he relishes the opportunity to bark at fellow canines on street corners. He loves to keep sniffing all the way to check if there is any opportunity to chase a rabbit.


We at Dog Loves Best advocate adopting a dog whenever possible. Besides, key contributors to our website are always ready to volunteer at shelter homes for abandoned pets and help them find a new caring home.
