Who We Are

We love dogs. We really, really love dogs. We stop and say hello to every dog we see on the street. We pride ourselves on giving the best belly rubs. The dog park is our happy place.

To us, dogs are more than just pets — they’re tail-wagging, best-friending, sometimes shoe-chewing members of the family. But the system is broken, and dogs are suffering. The ease of setting up a storefront online is making the problem worse and worse. Well-intentioned people, who just want to give a dog a good home, don’t know who they can trust. We’re here to change all that.

We’re transforming the way people become dog parents by helping educate prospective dog owners about how to get the right dog for them and helping them do so from a reputable source by connecting them with the best, most responsible breeders, shelters and rescues in the country.
