Start Your Own CityDog Magazine

Who is CityDog Magazine?
Launched in 2005, CityDog Magazine is the definitive dog lover’s magazine about life and living with dogs in the Pacific Northwest. Each issue overflows with informative, insightful and often humorous articles on topics from cool canine products and the latest doggie trends, to regional activities for dogs and their people. With 10 years under its belt, it's the go-to place for Seattle area dog lovers to find all they need to know about living in the city they love with the four-legged love of their life.

Now you can start your own CityDog Magazine in your city!

Why start my own CityDog Magazine?
Imagine producing your own gorgeous, glossy lifestyle magazine featuring all of the things you love most about living with dogs in your city -- from traveling to dog-friendly destinations to attending swanky, dog-centric events to enjoying the awesome people, places and things your city has to offer dogs and dog lovers. Sound like a business you could sink your teeth into? We certainly did 10 years ago in Seattle and we'll show you how today -- with your own CityDog Magazine, you can be up, running and profitable in no time!

Don't go it alone.
Starting a magazine is tough. The good news is, starting a magazine with a proven brand like CityDog Magazine, with over 10 years of experience, makes it a whole lot easier. More importantly, it significantly increases your chances for success and profitability. You will be joining an already established network versus going it alone, getting the marketing support and business tools you need to launch a magazine in your region. This includes sales collateral, website development, design services, access to our archive of articles and photography as well as access to national and regional advertisers.
