Do You Have A Dog Blog?

Last year we were excited to see our dog blog reach number one on Technorati for top Pet Blog.  However, since then we’ve noticed our site has declined steadily (as of this writing we rank 49th) on the Technorati list and we wondered how this could be since we still do our best to deliver great content.  We noticed that several spammy-looking sites and even totally unrelated blogs showed up on the Technorati top pet sites. On the other hand some of our favorite blogs were getting poor rankings.  This led us to believe that Technorati was not the best source to find the top dog blogs on the internet.

Yellow Lab Blogging

After this revelation we decided to check some of the other blog directories, search engines, and top lists across the internet in search of the top dog blog.  We checked out MyBlogLog, BlogCatalog, Yahoo Directory, DMOZ Directory, Google Search, Yahoo Search, Bing Search, Blog Top Sites, Delicious, Invesp.com, and as we mentioned Technorati.  After much effort we came to the conclusion that there wasn’t a good, current source for top dog blogs on the internet.

The Best Dog Blog

We’ve been running the Puppy In Training Blog for the past four years and during that time we’ve always had our eye out for other dog blogs and websites with great content.  Every year we re-evaluate our RSS feed and try to add new blogs we’ve come across and remove the old one’s that have shut down or gone stale.

This year we decided we’d like to ask you, our loyal readers to tell us about the dog blogs you write for or follow every day.  Our goal is to gather a list of as many dog blogs, rank them based on statistics (PR, Alexa, etc.), personal evaluation, and finally come up with a list of the top dog blogs across the internet!

So now what?  Tell us about your dog blog or the one’s you love to read in the comment section below or send us your information to our contact form.  We need to get your information by the end of this month, April 30th 2011 if you’d like to be included in this little competition.  We will publish the top blogs in a series of blog posts throughout the month of May 2011.

This a great opportunity to get exposure for your blog as last month alone we received over 65,000 page views according to Google Analytics.  We will also update our RSS feed with our top dog blogs list and we often times tweet, post to facebook, and link to other blog articles we read in our RSS feed.

What are you waiting for?  Tell us about your dog blog or your favorite doggy blog!

  1. I have a dog blog! It’s called Caninesavvy and it covers a lot of different subjects about dogs. I really like this blog and I think that regardless if Technorati likes you, you’ll still get lot’s of readers! Keep up the good work!

    1. Hi Steve,

      Thanks! I’m not sure how Technorati works. My ranking fluctuates quite a bit, but it’s nice to get a little recognition once in a while. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You have a great blog here Colby, We’ve added a link to your site here: (Hope that’s ok)

    I have to disagree with Lawrence up there. People are “Book Smart” but dogs have a natural instinct for survival that most people don’t have. If I had to choose between the above mentioned dumb blonde or my dog Jake while stuck on a mountain somewhere, I would take Jake any day of the week 😉

    Just my 2¢

    1. Hi Charles,

      No problem, thanks for adding us as a resource. I think you’re correct with the Dumb Blonde vs Your Dog. It would really be no contest. The more difficult question for me would be which dog?

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Humans are smarter than dogs. Yep… no offense to dogs, but even the dumbest blonde you know is smarter than the smartest dog you know. That’s good news, because if you want your dog to be a good student—to learn to sit, stay, heel, come, fetch; in short, to obey your every command—you have to be a good teacher. To be a good teacher, you have to understand how your student thinks. Because you’re smart, this will be a breeze.

  4. Hi, I just started a blog about getting dogs to stop barking and dog training. I believe in only positive solutions and «humane» practices. Right now, I only have a review about an ultrasonic product and dog training, but I plan to expand my blog to talk about small non allergic dogs, you know, the ones that have fur like hair… I like those a lot.

    I kinow I’m past the deadline, but would love to be included somewhere in your list. Thanks!

  5. I have a puppy blog! Since I’m more than three years old, some people have said that I’m a dog rather than a puppy, but I think that since I’m a small dog, I can still be called a puppy.

  6. @Prospect & Ed thanks for visiting our website. That’s pretty cool you’ve been traveling the dog world. No worries on the late arrival. We’re in the middle of reviewing hundreds of dog blogs and probably won’t have our top dog blogs post together until late this month or early next month. We added your blog to our list. Thanks!

  7. @Sadie thanks for visiting our website. We added your name to our list of dog blogs and we hope to get our top dog blog post out late this month or early next month.
