In April of 2012 a little fox terrier-chihuahua mix named Frankie came into my life and I became a brand new "dog dad" at the age of 41. I was obsessed! Every day I'd take pictures of her and share them on Facebook. After more than a couple comments by Facebook friends to please cool it with the Frankie photos, I thought there had to be a better place for me to connect with other guys who loved their dogs as much as I loved mine. There wasn't. So I made one.
Dudes With Dogs® was founded in February 2014 and has grown slowly and steadily from just a handful of my friends with dogs to a global community on all 7 continents, touching over 100,000 people on Mighty Networks, Facebook, and Instagram.
We encourage the best of our members while maintaining a fun and addictive community that celebrates and supports our members' journeys as dog dads and moms. We’re extremely proud of our group's diversity and inclusivity and will always be a safe place for the lgbt+ community, our friends, family, and allies.
But most importantly, join us! And start making fetch happen!™
Chris (and Frankie)
