We have lived our entire lives with dogs, been in business with The Light of Dog since 2003, and currently live on a farm with our dogs. We want to positively impact the lives of our dogs in the six major areas of their lives: (1) choosing our next dog; (2) providing quality, holistic-based healthcare; (3) positive reinforcement-based training; (4) high quality nutrition sourced humanely through organic and regenerative agricultural standards; (5) environmentally responsible, non-toxic products; and, (6) enjoying life and sharing our adventures with them. Through our business, we create content, services and products consistent with our standards in these areas. Our goal is to live life to the fullest with our dogs and aim to inspire others to do the same. This is a monthly magazine published digitally and in print by The Light of Dog.

New Documentary Interviews This Month

Below are new videos of dogs we meet to give you ideas and inspiration for your own dog.  The videos are generally short and allow you to meet the dog, get to know a little about their background and their breed, and hear from their owners what goals and activities they want for their dog.

JUST FOR FUN

This month's mashup includes short clips of the following:

  • Iris, Tator and Stormy in Puppy Preschool
  • Winnie, Fraser and Zuzu on a play date
  • From our farm, time-lapse sequences building parkour objects and Colorado clouds
