Officially…. OUR MAGAZINE HAS LAUNCHED IN CALGARY! Pinch me!! This has been an incredible undertaking and I am so thrilled to have created this with my friend and business partner, Jodie Hebbard and our design team! Our Editors’ Letter sums it up perfectly – we have had a year and a half of hard work infused with inspiration and a ton of fun. The finished product is amazing and we are so excited to share it with Calgary dog folks! 🙂

Welcome to the premiere issue of Calgary Dog Life Magazine.
The idea for this magazine originally began over a year and a half ago. The suggestion came as two friends were out walking their dogs one afternoon. One said to the other, “I was thinking about starting a dog magazine.” To which the other replied, “I was thinking the same thing a few months ago!” And just like that, Calgary Dog Life Magazine was underway.
Since its inception, it has evolved from creating a central place for dog news and events, to a thoughtful and beautiful space that showcases some of the amazing dog people, dog businesses, and dog heroes of our city. Individuals who are following their hearts, creating businesses, living their passions, and making a difference.
Our goal with this magazine is to create a community and offer these talented, inspirational, and hardworking people a chance to be acknowledged for their work and achievements. Hopefully, we can also encourage other dog people to recognize what one small idea or action can create.
Through this journey, we have been privileged to meet, interview and collaborate with some of Calgary’s most compassionate and passionate dog people. Some you may have heard of, and others may be a little less known. But all of them have a heart of gold and a love for all things dog, and we look forward to bringing even more inspirational stories to the dog people of Calgary.
This first issue of the magazine is centered on new beginnings. Whether it is a new business, a new puppy, a new idea or a new outlook on life, this magazine represents all of those to us and the idea of what is possible.
Lastly, and just as important, we wanted to offer a place to honour Calgary Dogs. This magazine is a tribute to our fur babies that passed, and ultimately what brought the two of us together four years ago. In memory of Kirby and Billie.
We hope you finish this first issue as inspired as we are. And if you do, we encourage you to share the love, and pass the magazine on to another dog loving friend!
Thanks for joining us!
