Hi. I’m Chris. I’m a Sydney mum, and labrador-lover.
MyDogSite has been an online dog business directory since 2007.
Not having grown up with a dog, when we got our first labrador, the gentle Spike, there was a lot of learning to do. A surprising amount, which I took notes on. Spike sat at my feet while I built the website, after our lovely morning walk taking the kids to the school bus stop.
In 2014, Spike crossed the rainbow bridge, and Buddy joined us. It’s amazing how different two labradors can be. Buddy is primarily my son’s dog, with the same lean strength and challenging attitude as my son, but I’m still the ultimate leader of the pack.
In December 2016 the site was rebuilt, with a fresher look, and being responsive for mobile phones. I’m still adding extra listings and refining stuff. Unfortunately I also had to shut down the sister site, MyDogSpace.com.au, as it had been flooded with spam. MyDogSite will be my main focus now.
I’m progressively adding parks and listings to the directory. Feel welcome – no, really welcome – to give me a link back. 🙂 It does help with Google.
I work on the site after work, so I can’t always reply quickly. But I do want the information to be up-to-date. I’m going to experiment with adding comments to the site, so people can comment on each of the listings, but they will need to get manually approved before displaying, to try and cut down on spammers.
Dogs make people happy, and vice versa. I’d like the site to be fun, useful and educational. I hope you enjoy it.
