Dog house times was founded in April 2019. Created by Jeremy Shantz, founder of Farm 6 Media, the site was and is intended to bring you the best in highly researched information about dogs and dog houses.

“One of the problems I found when trying to research things online is that you get two glaringly different types of articles online. You get the fluffy, often incorrect articles by bloggers with zero experience in the topic they are writing about. Or you get a pdf of a published scientific journal article or other highly researched published document. The latter having language that makes the best of us fall asleep in minutes or makes our brains hurt. What I’ve tried to do with my research articles is to bring the two together. Fully researched information from solid, legitimate sources, presented in a digestible format so it’s easy to read and saves you the time of digging through scientific journals yourself.”
