Selecting a companion for the next 10-15 years is a very important decision. Whether adopting a homeless pup from a shelter or purchasing one from a responsible breeder, it is imperative to find the right match for you and your lifestyle. Are you looking for a dog that is good with kids, cat friendly, thinking of adding a second dog, or just looking for a mountain biking companion? Let Dog-Ed lend a hand. We will simplify the process and provide professional guidance to lead you to the right match.


Please consider adopting from our local shelters and rescues. There are many amazing and wonderful dogs that are looking for a forever home. Dog-Ed will donate 10% of our fee to the shelter from which you adopt.


Dog-Ed believes in helping homeless pups, check out our current dogs in the New Leash on Life Program.
