Vote in the Dogington Post Awards: Best Dog Website in 2012

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!

    Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this article reminds me of my previous roommate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he’ll have a great read.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet
    explorer. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you
    know. The design and style look great though!

    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks

    Our boy is 13 now & he has degenerative myelopathy. He has problems getting around & controlling his bathroom needs. But we do all we can for him. As the same for my daughters cat Sunny. She passed away from kidney failure a few months back at the age of 16. They where best friends, he misses her.
    They have cared for & loved us all these years & we the same for them.
    If Ur not in it for love & life then just don’t be in it.
    PetMD has been the best source for info & help with both of them.
    If you have a pet you need PetMD.
    I vote for PetMD hands down!!!

    As a veterinarian, I rely on PetMD to share fun and informative posts on the clinic’s FB page.

    for the variety of information they provide, they’ve helped me with my pet care in too many ways to mention. even my 9yr old grandson visits this site for info as he is a pet lover also. the site has clear consistent advice, been using their site for years!

    When I needed a place after Sandy, the woman at bringfido searched for over half an hour to help me find a place for me and my dog. Love their customer service.

    Petfinders. It is such a blessing to Rescue Groups to get the word out about dogs needing homes.
