Welcome! I’m Carrie, the founder of Dog Lovers Express, a site dedicated to helping dog owners or prospective owners navigate the world of dogs and the products that help keep them safe, happy and healthy.
Dogs have been a passion of mine for over 30 years. Growing up, I never owned a pet larger than a gerbil, so naturally dogs were one of the first things I wanted as an adult.
Lucky for me, I didn’t have to wait long! Just a few weeks after my husband and I moved into our first home in Northeast Texas, a stray dog wandered up to our door looking for friendship and shelter. Thus began my journey with our dog, Lucky.
Things Get Messy
Lucky may have been the first stray we took in, but he certainly wasn’t our last. Unfortunately, dogs often get dumped on the roadside in the country by owners who no longer wish to care for them. I confess, I am a softy and will take in every stray who finds us.
Saying no to homeless animals is NOT my strong suit.
Over the years, we have taken in numerous dogs (and cats—and a chicken—but I digress), and that has lead us to loving dogs so much that we have also dipped into the waters of both dog breeding and boarding. Because of this, it has become so important to really do research and know what we’re doing when it comes to dog care.
Helping Others Find Direction
I have made an abundance of both good and bad decisions in dog ownership, and it’s my desire to offer others a peek at what I’ve learned regarding dogs and the products I’ve used to care for them.
While breeding and boarding dogs, I have met many great people. In doing so, we have shared ideas and insights on dog care with each other, and I am grateful for all that I’ve learned.
There are challenges to pet ownership, but most can be overcome through simply connecting with others and asking questions. And there are products that simplify the experience, making dog ownership even more rewarding.
It is my hope that Dog Lovers Express will become a place where dog lovers can curl up with a fresh cup of coffee and explore the world of dogs, finding both answers to questions and tried-and-true products to make the journey with man’s best friend just a bit easier.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I will be more than happy to do what I can to help you out.
All the best,
Founder of Dog Lovers Express
