Steve Taylor, Founder of Dog Mom News​

The roots of Dog Mom News can be traced back to 2017, starting modestly as a Facebook group. It blossomed further when Cheryl and Steve Taylor welcomed their Golden Doodle puppy, Teddy Bear Taylor, into their home. Nurturing Teddy showed the necessity for a supportive network where dog moms share insights and advice.

Under their guidance, Dog Mom News has evolved into an essential resource for dog mothers. It offers a blend of practical guidance, from training tips to health advice, and celebrates the unique bond between dogs and their human companions. The platform fosters a community where women celebrate their love for dogs and honor their contributions to the pet industry.

With Cheryl and Steve at the helm, Dog Mom News stands as a testament to their commitment to both canine well-being and the empowerment of women. It’s a place where the love for dogs is intertwined with the celebration of women’s roles in the pet industry, creating a vibrant and supportive community for all dog moms.
