Dog House Times – A Dog Magazine is all about dogs. With a special focus on the homes for our furry friends. Dog Houses have been around as long as mankind has kept dogs as pets. In modern times, many people enjoy the craft of DIY projects such as building their own dog house.

We dive deep into the dog house with in-depth research from only trusted sources. Everything from building materials and woods that are safe to use for dogs to dog house landscaping is covered.

Dog House Times Creator – Jeremy Shantz aka Farmer Jer

The creator of Dog House Times, Jeremy Shantz is also known as Farmer Jer. He has been an avid animal lover, researcher and both professional and amateur exotic fish, reptile and amphibian breeder for the better part of 30 years.

“I have always loved animals. My dad was a vet for the federal government and also bred exotic birds as a passion and a hobby. I grew up with dogs, cats, birds, fish, amphibians, and reptiles. My house was like a zoo.”

Jeremy Shantz

Dog house times was founded in April of 2019. Created by Jeremy Shantz 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.”

Christine Valitutti, CCP

Christine is a feisty Certified Credit Professional and writer for Dog House Times. She enjoys working with her career in Credit Management, spending time with her husband (Farmer Jer), family, and of course dog Kiki.

“I want to make information easy to read and informative for people. So, I put a lot of effort into my research and writing to make sure people find it helpful and entertaining.”

Christine Valitutti, CCP

Christine has had experience with Yorkshire Terriers, Corgi/Jack Russel Mix, and Labrador Retrievers and has had dogs most of her life. She is a natural when it comes to caring for her furry friends and has been an integral reason why Kiki the wonder dog is in such good hands.
