Welcome to Off The Leash!

dog magazine

Hey there! I’m Mike and thanks for stopping by the very first post on Off The Leash.

Bringing home your first dog and seeing them grow in front of your eyes is a truly incredible thing, but it leaves you with a ton of questions.

We couldn’t find much out there that quite spoke to how dogs fit into our lives in 2018 – so we created a place to talk about all of it.

Off The Leash is a new dog magazine exploring everything great about life with healthy, happy, beautiful dogs.

Every week we’ll be releasing new articles on nutrition, behaviour, dog-friendly events, new doggy products, rescues, and more!

Right now, Off The Leash is just online. There have been whispers of a print magazine in the future, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Off The Leash is brought to you by Scratch, a young dog food brand that I co-founded this year with another face that you’ll see around here, Doug Spiegelhauer.

Soon we plan to step back and open up to the community for questions and help each other out. All in a supportive, open, respectful and balanced environment. Know someone who would be great to write for Off The Leash? Let them know and feel free to get in touch with us.

Keep up to date on Facebook, Twitter or scroll down to sign up for a weekly email of all the posts you might have missed that week.

Wendy is Head of Media at Scratch. Which is a good fit, because she's never met a dog she didn't like. Although she has a special place in her heart for muts: three legs, one eye, missing fur, bit of a weird walk? The scruffier the better. Her favourite dog in the whole world though is her terrier-mix Stevie.
