Here, you’ll find everything you need to navigate the challenges and joys of large dog ownership. We cover every facet of pet care imaginable, including breed profiles, dog food, grooming, product reviews, and training. And we always do so while specifically focusing on large dog breeds.
And by “large” we mean dogs that are at least 50 pounds. We hope that small-dog owners still find our content helpful, but we want to be perfectly clear: We are big-dog people!
Canine Weekly: Your Resource for Accurate Information About Big Dogs
The internet is full of well-meaning, but flawed pet care advice. This can cause big problems for dog owners and their pets, and it is something we try to avoid at all costs. You’ll only find accurate, relevant and thorough pet-care information here at Canine Weekly.
We accomplish this in three different ways:
- Every article we publish is written or reviewed by a dog owner or an experienced pet-care professional. In addition to dog owners, our articles are written by a community of professional groomers, trainers, veterinarians, kennels staff and retail pet employees.
- All of our content is reviewed by our senior content editor prior to publication. This helps to ensure all of the information provided is accurate and focuses on the specific needs of large dogs.
- We don’t ask you to take our word for it and we help you dig deeper. You’ll find that many of the facts contained in our articles are linked to credible universities or veterinary resources, which allows you to verify them yourself and research the subject more thoroughly if you like.
We hope that by implementing these three key principles, we can better serve our readers and provide a trusted resource for all of your large-dog needs and questions.
