We’re building the 🌎 global 🏳️‍🌈 lgbt-inclusive community of 🐶 dog ❤️ lovers.



Dudes With Dogs® (DWD) was founded by Chris Rolczynski in 2014 after noticing the positive effect dogs have on lgbt+ lives like his own.

After all, dogs aren't just cute af — they're our kids, best friends, and teachers. They teach us to be authentic, inclusive, and love unconditionally.

And since dog lovers have instant rapport with each other, and are scientifically 300% more attractive when our dogs are around, we're pretty sure DWD will become your new healthy addiction.

But the point of all this isn’t just the cute dog pics. That’s just what gets you in the door.

Our purpose is to create opportunities for lgbt-inclusive dog lovers to connect in a meaningful way.

So join us on any, or all, of the following three platforms:

Mighty Networks helps you make meaningful connections with other members near you. Facebook lets you share with members all around the world. And Instagram is, well, super cute.

So let’s achieve our purpose, together.



on Mighty Networks


Our new home

Dudes With Dogs has been around for over 5 years! We’ve grown a lot, but we’re still far from achieving our purpose. It’s time for something new.

That’s why we’ve created a new home on Mighty Networks, a new social media platform that puts our community front-and-center and has the features we need to connect.

Discover other members near you

With Mighty Networks, you can discover other members who live in your city or even just down the street (which is especially important for the 1/3 of our members who don’t live in big cities).

After all, your life is local. So let’s make it easier for you to meet friends for puppy playdates, a dog walking partner, to save money by watching each other’s dogs when you’re away, or maybe even that special someone who loves dogs as much as you.

Mighty Networks has a lot of other great features like the ability to follow topics important to you, find members into the same dog breed as you, a chronological feed that lets catch up on everything, and a gorgeous and intuitive design.

Lock it in

Mighty Networks isn't free, but it's also not expensive. Join today and lock in launch phase pricing that’s cheaper than one cup of coffee per month.

Sharing since ‘14

We’ve been sharing doggie selfies, advice, and support with each other since 2014, and now with over 70,000 members, it's a total party! Join us and share this special part of your life with other DWDs from all over the world.

But just as Facebook is great at some things, it simply wasn’t designed for others. That’s why we hope you’ll also join us on Mighty Networks, our new platform designed to help you discover members near you with great features like Members Near You, Topics, Interests (Dog Breeds), Cities, and Events.

Features are the images on our permanent wall — curated, edited, and branded versions of some of our community's most compelling user-submitted images. Wanna be featured? Visit our submissions page and DM to start the conversation.
