I'm Akira, the co-owner of Barking with the Bradley's and manager of the Bradley household (you can learn a little more about that here: https://www.barkingwiththebradleys.com/about).
I've been on an insatiable quest for knowledge (about some things that are useful and some being complete nonsense) as long as I can remember. Lately, much of my attention has been focused on better understanding business, dogs, and the Bible, but we'll keep all things 'dog' here.
Starting a blog has been something on my never-ending to-do list for some time now. To be honest, it was a commitment that I was not, and still am not, quite sure that I'll be able to uphold, but here I am...doing the thing! Sometimes you just have to take a leap of faith and show up.
I hope that this blog fulfills a need in the cyber world rather than just taking up space. Please keep in mind that I am not a veterinarian nor a certified dog trainer, but what we can call a "dog enthusiast" - pinky up. I want to share what I learn with you from:
What I read
Conversations with my network of dog professionals
What I experience first-hand as a dog mom, dog care provider, and an entrepreneur in the dog care industry
...in a way that is easy to digest and apply to help you to be a more informed dog parent.
Thank you for reading along thus far. I hope you stick around for the ride!
Wishing you puppy kisses and well wishes,
