At SoulPup, we celebrate your dog’s inner puppy.
To make every dog’s house a forever home by offering expert advice on health, gear and training.
A caramel-colored whirlwind named Lulu who came into my life because my then-boyfriend wanted a dog and I didn’t.
We got Lulu. Then, we broke up and he moved away, leaving me with stained carpets, a shoe-loving pit bull puppy — and no clue how to care for a dog. That’s where our story began more than a decade ago. No matter how many mistakes I made, Lulu accepted me and embraced each day, challenging me to do the same. Lulu crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2014. A year later, I healed enough to start all over again with a feisty French Bulldog puppy named Louie B. Upton.
A friend told me that everyone is a great dog owner the second time around. I want SoulPup.com to help you get it right the first time.
In honor of Lulu, the motto on SoulPup.com is Celebrate Your Dog’s Inner Puppy.
COMING IN JANUARY: Don’t miss our weekly podcast! Details coming soon.
