We love our pets.
Around 85 million American homes, or 67 percent, own a pet, according to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association. In the United States, there are approximately 83.3 million pet dogs. Almost half (46 percent, to be exact) of all households own at least one dog.
We can post an array of additional statistics about the millions of dollars that Americans spend on their dogs, and how studies show that our canine friends reduce stress, ease loneliness, help endure challenging life events, and make our happiest days even brighter, but most dog owners already know this first-hand.
We created Ohio Barker as an online destination to celebrate our best friends. We will publish stories about dogs and their owners and cover health and wellness, lifestyle, and travel and leisure topics centered around dogs in Ohio. We invite your story ideas and submissions, photos, and suggestions.
If you would like to reach dog owners in Ohio, feel free to give us the opportunity to share the sponsorship opportunities that are available. If you are a veterinarian, trainer, groomer or any other dog-related specialist and would like to contribute articles, please don’t hesitate to email us.
