My name is Rebecca and I was inspired to create TheThePhillyDog.com after becoming frustrated by the lack of a centralized resource for dog owners in the Philadelphia area. My dog Dash, pictured above, suffers from severe separation anxiety. After trying every training tip and recommendation, I tried to find dog friendly businesses so I could take Dash with me. I found that Philadelphia was dog friendly!
When it came to dog owners and the dog service provider community, there was a huge disconnect. Philadelphia needs a website that people could visit to find out where they can take their dog, what to do with their dog on the weekend, where the dog parks were, what fundraising events were going on…just a “one-stop-shop” kind of place to get information. And so, ThePhillyDog.com was born!
