Welcome to Dog Mom, a blog dedicated to the amateur dog owner. At dog-mom.com you’ll find information on basic dog care – simplified for those who are brand new pet parents. How to’s, tips, tricks, and information about health are just some of what we offer!

Dog-mom.com is Alexa, a twenty-something journalism graduate from Minnesota. Dog Mom was created because as a novice pet owner with a new puppy, Alexa had no idea what she was doing and Internet searches didn’t quite break down the basics to dog care. This blog is meant to be a place where novice dog owners can come and find answers to questions they have about dog care. Our goal is to provide resources so dog moms and dads can become the best pet parents they can be!


I’m Alexa, a dog obsessed lady with a passion for web design and writing. I am a communications professional and dog mom to Zeus the two-year-old Cane Corso. Most of my days are filled with work, hanging out with my high school sweetheart and cuddling with my giant puppy. I have always been an animal lover and grew up with dogs, but when it came time to raise one on my own I had no idea what I was in for. I hope that you enjoy following my stories as I figure out how to care for my fur baby!

Zeus is the dog behind the blog. A two year old spunky Cane Corso who is too smart for his own good. Zeus loves to get his ears rubbed, eat ice cubes, run through long grass, swim, destroy stuffed animals and cuddle with mom and dad. His favorite treats include Beggin’ Strips and licking the leftover yogurt out of the carton. Zeus has taken obedience training classes and is typically well behaved, but he can become extremely uncooperative if he does not receive enough exercise.
