Why I created the Petting My Dog

What really made me so passionate about Dogs and Dog products, especially Dog nutrition was the result of a personal experience, during my interaction with Dog owners come across several situation.

Every dog owner feed everything they find online or at pet stores near them. Some times it leads to disaster, not knowing they are feeding their Dog, inappropriate nutrients, Dog food, treats, and even accessories and other things.

I have seen so many people used to give them multiple nutrients together and it compromised their pet Dog life.

It’s time to change; I decided to share my experience and expertise I gather over the years and I am still learning because it is an ongoing process. I share everything here, for your pet Dog.
