About Us

Hi!  We're the Doggy Dream Team.

Hello and welcome to the Doggy Dream Team Blog. We're a team of dog owners and dog lovers on a mission to give you simple and actionable advice on health, lifestyle and nutrition for dogs.

All our contributors are proud pet-parents and write first hand from both a practical and personal experience. Their beloved dogs are from different backgrounds, are different shapes and sizes and all unique. They all descended from the same breed a time long gone but have since evolved to have their own look, characteristics and personalities. It is with this unique perspective that we can offer insights and "slobber satisfaction" testimonials to everything we 'dog' about, (woof) blog about.

My areas of expertise are squeaky toys, tasty dog treats and long naps!
