As part of a larger initiative to educate dog owners on proper nutrition, effective training, and other ways to raise a happy and healthy dog, the Dogington Post is reviewing products, toys, foods, treats, websites, and trainers in our first annual Dogington Post Awards Program!
Each week, we’ll present 3 nominees in a particular category. And, YOU, our readers, will have an opportunity to weigh-in on your favorites, to help us choose a winner!
Nominees from each category for the Dogington Post Award have been selected based on strict criteria including dedication to dog welfare, educating and informing dog owners, animal advocacy, and helping to improve the lives of dogs.
This week, we’re presenting the nominees for Best Dog Website for 2012!
Of course (and we hope you’ll agree) The Dogington Post is our favorite all-inclusive internet newspaper all about dogs. And, it may seem a little silly to recommend alternative sites to our readers. But, we found tremendous value and importance in our 3 nominees for this category. Our ultimate goal of improving the life and well-being of all dogs led us to the following sites that specialize in very specific areas of dog ownership… Don’t forget to comment below with your favorite!
