Our Start

We wanted to find a dog blog that would focus on all different types of breeds including purebred and mixed puppies.

Enter Trending Breeds.

What began as a blog where we shared the various things we learned while raising our dogs, quickly grew into much more. We love our pups and being able to help others by giving them a place to find helpful information.

Our Content

For us, it’s all about making good content that’s honest, to the point, and more than anything as helpful as possible. We spend a lot of time choosing and curating the content and articles that you’ll see here.
