Max (Left), Olive (Right), Me (Both)
Hi! My name is Lauren! You may have come here from I’m Fine, Stop Asking, my other blog where I talk about mental health and life in general. If you don’t know me at all, that’s okay too.
I am an author, blogger, and I work part-time as a content writer and social media marketer for a small company.
I am also a life-long dog lover and an avid researcher. I have put thousands of hours into researching dog behaviour, dog breeds, and dog training.
When I was 12 years old, I created a website called “Puppy Lovers: Created by Kids For Kids” – My goal was to educate other kids on how to properly care for their dogs. Of course, that site no longer exists, but for years I kept it up, and it inspired me to continue blogging.
I have always been passionate about helping others have the absolute best relationship possible with their canine companions. And so now, 14 years later, I decided to create a new version of my “Puppy Lovers” blog.
Max & Olive is a site where I can share some of the information I’ve learned with you in a (hopefully) easy-to-understand way, so even new puppy and dog owners can feel confident with their pups.
It’s also a place to share my own personal experiences raising Max and Olive, my two dogs. Max is a rescue dog, and Olive is from a wonderful breeder. Raising the two of them have been polar opposites, and I’m excited to share my experiences as a “dog mom” with you, as I go through the highs and lows of dog ownership.
