years ago, Brandie Ahlgren
, founder and editor of Seattle-based CityDog
Magazine, was introduced to an entirely new universe when Scout, an eight-week-old boxer puppy entered her life. "I am proof of how a dog can change your life," says Brandie
. The world of dog-park etiquette, puppy kindergarten and the sense of panic that comes with the realization that you've left the house without a poo
bag, was a whole new experience. "I didn't grow up with dogs, so puppy parenting was new territory for me," she adds. "I found most of my information came through word-of-mouth at the dog park, which is fine, but a go-to resource with fresh, up-to-date content was missing." Hence, the concept for CityDog
Magazine was born and 10 years later, is still going strong. Brandie
and her team of dog loving editors dig up the best places to sit, stay and play for you and your furry, four-legged friends. She resides in West Seattle with her two dogs, Thya (a boxer) and Ziggy
(a schnoodle), and can often be found hanging out at Westcrest
to watch KING 5's Evening Magazine and here
to watch the Seattle Channel's CityStream, both featuring Brandie Ahlgren and CityDog Magazine.
