Stef About

Hi there, I’m Stefanie, Chief of all the things here at DogSplendor.com.

This website began as an outlet for my desire to spend hours immersed in anything and everything having to do with dogs. There’s just something about dogs that brings a smile to your face on a daily basis.

Quickly, I came to realize that a lot of discerning dog parents rely on the web to find information on dog issues, dog products, etc. and that there is an increased need for quality content delivered in a fun manner.

DogSplendor.com includes quality dog tips and reviews of pet products…with a bit of splendid whimsy infused in everything we do.

I have a varied background of working with non-profits, consulting on retirement plans, and appraising commercial real estate projects. I’ve been a city commissioner and on the board of local charities. The constant through-out all my experience was writing, and I officially gave in and became a freelance writer. My hobbies include real estate (beach house coveter), travel, movies, my dogs, cooking, and working on a book (or 2 or 3).

My inspiration & co-founders

Izzie Maddie DogSplendor About

My two partners in crime, otherwise known as the two dogs that inspired this site, are Izzie and Maddie. Both Izzie (left) and Maddie (right) are Schnoodles (a Schnauzer and Poodle mix).

Izzie and Maddie are similar in appearance but much different in temperament. They love trying new things and will be happy to give honest reviews of products (truth be told, they make me do most of the work).
