A Warm Welcome To All Who Love Dogs

Derek Collinson is a passionate Scot who loves all dogs. He's an animal communicator and healer who created the first dating site for dog lovers in the world in 2006.

Every day I look forward to going for a walk with a friend’s mixed breed called Angus. And of course it's a real joy to meet other cute dogs and their warm and friendly human companions. So what is it about our canine best friend that brings out the best version of us and enables us to appreciate that a stranger is just a friend we do not know?

The fact is that dogs have an incredible ability to unite people and make them happy. They light up our lives with their unconditional, infinite love and literally jump for joy when they greet us. All human beings need to love and be loved and dogs show us how!

In return for enriching and enlightening our lives I believe the least we can do for our canine companions is to take care of their emotional and physical needs so that they live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives! The purpose of Waggly Dogs is to provide the information you need to provide this care. We do so by featuring articles from leading experts on dog breeds, dog food, dog care, dog behavior, dog-human relationship and many other topics.

Waggly Dogs also has an important role to play when for a variety of reasons dogs become homeless or are treated cruelly and are rescued by dog shelters and animal charities.

We are committed to helping these homeless dogs find forever homes by donating 25% of our profit to dog charities.

You can help boost our donations by buying the products we promote. Just visit our online shop here to see these products and any current special offers.

Love and light,

Derek Collinson
