Hi everyone and welcome to my website First Time Dog Mom.  A site dedicated to all things dog-related, more specifically Golden Retrievers.  

Here you will find tips and advice to help make the journey of dog parenting a great one for both you and your dog.  My website includes personal product reviews and my experience as a Dog Mom.  I only recommend products that I love and use myself.

A Little Bit About Myself

As the website name implies, I am a First Time Dog Mom to a Golden Retriever named Ellie. I’m Jenny, that’s me in the photo above, holding Ellie when she was about 5 weeks old.  My husband Aaron and I had just visited the breeder and picked her from a litter of 8 females.

Currently, Ellie is 5 years old, and she has given us so much joy, and we can’t imagine our life without her.  The three of us currently live in Peterborough, ON Canada.

Being a First Time Dog Mom is a lot of work and a learning experience.  It was very hard in the beginning, especially going from just the two of us to being dog parents. I have learned so much over the past 5 years, and have made a few mistakes along the way too. Every day has its challenges, and there is never a dull moment.

Growing up my parents owned a Golden Retriever, and that is when I fell in love with the breed, and I couldn’t wait until I was able to own one of my own.  Anyone who owns a Golden knows that they are so gentle, loving and oftentimes goofy.

Why I Started First Time Dog Mom

I started my website as a way to share my experience of being a First Time Dog Mom and to help other first-time dog owners.  There are situations and problems that first-time dog owners will come across, and I want to be that helpful website that people can go to, to find real honest answers.

During my 5 years as a Dog Mom, I have dealt with several dog issues, the biggest issue has been allergies, and trying to find the best food for my dog that doesn’t cause sensitivities.   I am constantly researching and finding out the best products for my dog. Everyone who owns a dog knows that a dog is not just a dog, a dog is a loving member of the family.

What You Will Find Here

On this website, you will find helpful information, from how to take care of a Golden Retriever, to the best products to use.  You will find honest reviews of products that I find useful and love myself.

This website is not just for Golden Retriever owners, but for all dog owners who are looking to make life with their furry best friend the most enjoyable, it can be.
