At DogTime, our mission is to keep dogs out of shelters and get them adopted by good homes by equipping experienced and novice ownersalike with the important information needed to make them, and their dogs, very happy.
DogTime covers all things dog. Our extensive pure- and mixed-breed profiles include the history and evaluation of various dog characteristics — such as behaviors, shedding, adaptability — and what they mean for a potential owner.
For those looking to take the plunge and adopt a four-legged friend, take the matchup quiz and questionnaire to find the pooch who best fits one’s lifestyle and interests. One can even check nearby local shelters using the Adoptable Animal Finder. And don’t forget the extensive lists of dog names by breed, theme, gender, popular culture, and other categories.
We also feature expert advice on a variety of topics, including training, raising puppies, housetraining, dog health, product reviews, and pet body language, with answers provided by notable and respected veterinarians, trainers, behaviorists, and specialists.
Make sure and check the homepage for breaking news articles and features covering the latest happenings in the dog world, product and food recalls, important legislation, and other information that impacts dog owners.
DogTime believes in giving back to the animal community, and in 2013 donated over $30,000 to rescues and shelters through various grants and contests, including the Petties Awards, where the best in animal blogging is selected by the peer community.
Looking for cats? CatTime is devoted to all things feline.
