Pets and animals at large should be treated with care and respect, just the way we deserve it as human beings. We care, and that is why we are here to share helpful information about pet care, products, food, training, health tips and much much more.

We source our data from various reputable and accredited sources such as government websites. For example, for updated animal shelter data, we source from the Data.gov website and facts from university research papers such as the ESF College of Environmental Science and Forestry etc. In short, we dig deep to get reputable information to include in our presentations to you.

Candice Littleton (Author and Dog Trainer)

Born and raised in Texas, Candice gained a fascination with animals at a young age while helping her family raise horses, goats, and cows. Her favorite animal, however, has always been the lovable, loyal dog. While living in Austin, Candice graduated from St. Edward’s University specializing in Communication and English.

Since graduating, she’s found her fondness for animals and bachelor’s degree help her as both a freelance dog-trainer and freelance writer. Candice currently lives in West Michigan where she and her Border Collie-Beagle, Nashville, love to enjoy long walks as much as long afternoon naps. Adopted as a reactive, heartworm-positive mutt, Nashville has since learned to trust strangers as well as overcome his illness, but not without the help of his patient and understanding owner.

Craig Richmond

Hi, my name is Craig. I was born in Idaho in 1986 and my first best friend was Trix, an exciting pup that I came to love and grow up with. We had a special bond. My family has always loved cats and dogs, and they are a part of our lives ever since I started existing.
I can recall that caring for dogs and cats was a routine part of my life. I remember there were times when I spent countless hours researching the challenges that kept popping up – pet diseases, coaching, training, discipline, pet language…you name it.
You can say that pets (specifically cats and dogs) have become a big part of my life. Now I want to share what I’ve learned with you. You can reach me at [email protected]
