About
Dog Advisor HQ

“I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive.” – Gilda Radner

Hello…and Welcome!

I’m James Davenport, founder and Editor-In-Chief of Dog Advisor HQ (DAHQ), and lifelong dog lover.

Along with myself, the team at DAHQ consists of three part-time associate editors/general researchers/writers, plus a growing group of veterinarians (DVMs) who perform research and knowledge gathering services, as well as writing articles that require an advanced professional/clinical level of knowledge and experience. Our DVMs also assist in fact checking to make sure that all the information on the site is factual and in line with the latest science.

Our Why

I created Dog Advisor HQ to be the site that I wish I had found multiple times throughout my relationships with my dogs.  Unfortunately, too many times I found faulty, scientifically questionable and incomplete information.  So, I decided to dive into journals, contact educated and respected veterinarians directly, and, of course, talk to as many experienced puppy / dog parents as possible…all to make sure that I was doing to best that I could for my fur babies. 

I quickly realized that the information that I was finding should be shared with other pet parents…and so, Dog Advisor HQ was born. 

What You’ll Find Here

DAHQ is a collection of helpful information, general musings about the topic of dog ownership, a resource for special topics (such as dog rescues, spay/neuter drives, etc.) and our recommendations for pretty much anything that you might need in your effort to help your best friend to be the best best friend that a best friend could be! 

Our Commitment

Finally, I just wanted to share our mission statement and core values with you.  Putting these out into the universe for the world to see is the best way for me to hold myself, as well as our team, accountable to always making sure that we make the health, safety and well-being of our dogs our top priority.

The Dog Advisor HQ Mission

Dog Advisor HQ provides factual, science-based, research-proven information to help dog owners make informed decisions affecting the health, happiness and well-being of their puppies / dogs.
