About

The Dog Clinic About PageWelcome to TheDogcClinic.com!

TheDogClinic.com was founded setup during the Summer of 2008 by me, Richard Cross. Since then it has grown into a huge site covering almost every aspect of owning a dog – and it’s getting bigger all the time.

Our Mission: The goal of The Dog Clinic is to provide helpful and reliable information for dog owners around the world. We also write about news affecting dogs and dog owners – with the occasional joke article too!

We have a team of writers creating content, including dog trainers, professional writers/journalists and knowledgeable enthusiasts. While their backgrounds and expertise vary, each provides outstanding insight into their chosen topics. These include dog behaviour, training, health and news.

Our Philosophy: The Dog Clinic believes it’s every pet dog’s right to have a happy, fulfilled and healthy life. Dogs are wonderful and complex creatures, and as owners it’s our duty to give them the best possible life.

For this reason, we stand for positive training methods that don’t rely on physical punishment or fear. We’re also against negative training tools such as shock collars, choke chains and other outdated devices. You can read more about this in our training section.
