What is K9 Nation?
K9Nation’s mission is to promote responsible dog ownership and make owning a dog as fun and easy as possible.
As dog owners, the team here at K9Nation have created this site from their own personal needs, experiences and passion for dogs.
We wanted to create a place free to everyone where dog lovers could upload as many cute, funny pictures as they want without
judgement from their non-dog friends. Sometimes owning a new dog can be overwhelming and you just need some advice or
useful tips to help you overcome a problem.
Below are just a few of the key features of the community with new things being added on every day.
Join the ever growing K9Nation community today for free and make the most out of the time with your four legged friend.
Find walks near you or in a location you are planning to visit and check out what facilities are there to help plan your visit.
Search for and help arrange group walks in your area.
Build up your dog’s profile and look for friends in your local area to meet for walks and share your love of dogs.
Store all your precious pictures and video memories in one place.
Keep all your dog’s important information in one handy location in case you ever need it in an emergency and get reminders for vaccinations.
Join in conversations, ask for advice and support or just have fun and chat about all things dog related on our forum.
Keep up to date on the adventures of Buddy and his friends at K9Nation as they journey around the UK visiting
and reviewing new places as well as discussing hot topics in the Dog World.

Who We Are
First of all I’d like to begin by introducing you to the inspiration for K9Nation. This is Buddy
He’s a two year old cockapoo that came into my life at 8 weeks old back in November 2015. I got him as a single puppy mum, having had
family dogs as a child. I had wanted my own dog for a long time and did all my research, planned everything out and thought I
had everything prepared. Little did I know the journey I would go through with him over the next 2 years.
Having a new puppy is hard work and can feel overwhelming at times. I was lucky that I had a good support network and
people to go to for advice but at times it was still tough. Simple things like where do I find a good local dog walker or groomer?
Can they be trusted? It can be a minefield out there.
I wanted to create a free social platform based on my experiences and needs as a pet owner. Somewhere like-minded owners could meet,
chat and share their knowledge with each other. Nowadays we all use the internet to check impartial reviews of products and places
and I wanted to be able to give dog owners in the UK the same resources, along with some extra features thrown in for good measure.
I have a passion for dogs and a vision for helping other dog owners enjoy the time they have with four legged friends.
I look forward to watching the site grow and develop over time and hope you enjoy using it!
