Our Collection Of The Best Dog Blogs In India
In the last few years, social media groups about dogs and dog blogs created a sense of belonging among pet owners in India. The online community is a brand new world for pet owners, and some of the best dog blogs in India create a network for Indian dog parents to talk about their dog’s diet, training treats, upbringing, views on pet care and so much more.
Before the online community, it used to be a lonely world for Indian dog parents. No one understood why they loved their dogs and even received a lot of hostility from those who don’t own pets. Things still have a long way to go, but with these lovely dog pages and dog blogs, more people are starting to understand the love shared between a human and a canine.
In this article, we will talk about some of the best dog blogs in India. Many of these blogs have inspired others to become a dog parent, to adopt and feel like they are a part of a community.
Starting from the ninth-best to the best dog blog in India, our countdown begins now!
9. Fur Babies
Fur Babies is a lovely blog created by a group of animal lovers. The creators of this blog like to stay discreet. The only thing we know about them is that they love animals, especially dogs.
The blog creates a sense of belonging among Indian pet parents. Though this is a pet blog, 90% of their articles revolve around dogs.
A majority of their other articles cover hot topics among dog parents. The blog has a lot of potential, but sadly, they haven’t blogged after October 2018. Their social media remains at a standstill as well.
Many blogs rose out of the darkness and succeeded, and we hope Fur Babies is one of them. You can still benefit from a lot of their articles as they have covered many relevant topics among pet parents in India.
8. Indian Dog Breeds
The Society for Indian Breeds of Dogs is one of the few Indian dog blogs that highlight Indian dog breeds. All the information provided here is authentic and easy to follow. Their photo gallery contains visuals of Indian dog events that took place around 2013 – 2016.
Their blog section is easy to use along with the rest of their website. If you love Indian breeds, you’d like to have a look at their blog. They have heaps of information for the less known Indian dog breeds.
Our only complaint, however, is that this blog is not updated. The society has deactivated its Facebook page and stopped posting content on their blog.
In 2016 September, they posted their last article. The Society for Indian Breeds of Dogs has a lot of potential if they start working on their blog again. We are sure more Indians will begin to take an interest in our lovely Indian dog breeds.
We look forward to seeing more of Indian Dog Breeds soon!
7. Damsel and Angel
Here is a lovely blog (and vlog), run by a young girl who calls herself ‘Damsel’ and her dog ‘Angel’. She has kept her identity discreet but loves to share incidences with her dog.
Anyone can enjoy her content, but we are sure a younger audience will take up a keen interest in her articles and her blog. Since this article revolves around a young girl (perhaps in her pre-teens), it is bound to kindle curiosity among others within the same age group.
This blog is perfect for kids who are raised around dogs but are too young to take complete responsibilities of their canine siblings.
Her blog is two years old and mostly documents her everyday life with Angel. Most of her content is unique to her own life, and she also provides product reviews.
Most of her articles are short and contain snippets of information. They are all supported by original video content for users to follow and learn.
The main highlights of her channel are that it teaches children to be responsible with their dogs. Simple things like, knowing not to overfeed treats, or waiting for a parent to come home before taking Angel outside comes a long way.
Kids can train their dogs as long as they are supervised by their parents. If we teach kids to be responsible with our pets, they will grow into sincere, reliable and loving adults.
Since the blog is made to serve the purpose of the YouTube channel, it is a little slow and not as simple to maneuver around. But, we know Damsel is just flexing her muscles in the online world. We expect to see great things from her and Angel in the coming years!
6. Dog Lover
Here’s a relatively new and updated blog for Indian dog parents. Dog lover is run by Kashyap Dave. He covers a variety of content from Animal Welfare to information on dog breeds. Most of his articles are means through which he expresses his opinions.
He has also published pet-related stories contributed to the blog by his readers. This blog is perhaps the most diverse blog on the list with a range of light to heavy topics on dog care. All their articles are relatable, and every dog lover is bound to enjoy being a part of this blog.
Our favourite section is the Inspirational Story section that includes personal stories of those who own and love dogs. It warms our hearts to know that there are people out there who can love and be loved by a dog. Articles like ‘Man’s Most Loyal Friend’ doesn’t fail to inspire us to do the right thing and make this world a better place for our canine companions.
We haven’t heard from Dog Lover for the past 5 months, and we really hope it is not the end! Kashyap continues to post on the Dog Lover’s Facebook page once in a while, and we hope he gets back to blogging very soon!
5. Voice of Strays
There are a very few Indian dog lovers who can genuinely love, respect and appreciate strays. And VOSD is one of them. VOSD or Voice of Stray Dogs is a sanctuary built by Mr Rakesh Shukla in Bangalore. The VOSD blog primarily supports their YouTube content, but nevertheless, there have a few informative articles on their blog regarding the legal frameworks that protect stray dogs in India.
Mr Rakesh Shukla, also known as India’s dog father, has dedicated his life to protect animals who are shunned by the rest of India. In the video below, you can see how vast their sanctuary is and the number of animals that can now breathe safely and have a sound sleep because of VOSD.
Though they have a few articles on their blog, all their articles are authentic. Most of them cover current happenings in their sanctuary. All their articles are supported by original video content, making it perfect for those in a hurry.
VOSD published articles whenever there is an update in their sanctuary. We look forward to seeing more content from VOSD!
Do you think there aren’t enough Indian dog blogs that promote Indian dog breeds? Well, INDog agrees with you 100 per cent!
Founder Rajashree Khalap took the time to write and mediate content that educates us on pure Indian dog breeds. All the articles are detailed and discuss the status of Indian dogs today.
All articles on this website are original and written more like a documentary than blog articles. The writers (Not all articles are written by Ms Rajashree) went to various places and gathered data on Indian dogs today. Their gallery is also very unique with photos of Indian dogs you will not find anywhere. It’s a treat to go through their gallery and appreciate the beautiful dogs we have in our country.
If you want a detailed understanding of pure Indian dog breeds, INDog is the place for you. They have articles dedicated to breeds like the Santal Hound of the Canaan Dog. Since their articles are so vast and in-depth, we understand why it is not possible for them to frequently post new content.
Most of their articles are written in the first person, and the writing is thought-provoking. Take a second to read ‘the Red Dog’, it’s a lovely article on the ‘land of the red dog’ (or rather the Indian dog). In this article, they tackle some complicated matters like how the red dog is slowly decreasing in numbers because foreign dogs are taking their place.
Having a closer look at their website, you can see that their team, genuinely care about the dying Indian dog breeds. They provided us with a resources section that contains resources on Indian dog breeds and their current conditions.
Though they don’t post as often, Rajashree does keep the page active on Instagram. We understand why it is difficult for them to post as often as other blogs, however, we do hope to see more expeditions and documentaries of the lovely Indian dog.
3. Dog With Blog
Here is one of the oldest dog blog on our list. The earliest articles in the ‘Dog with Blog’ date as far back as 2008 making this blog, 11 years old!
‘Dog with Blog’ is the perfect name for this blog. Apparently, Kaalicharan – a beautiful black dog with a white muzzle – owns the blog. He introduces himself in the first blog post and talks about how he has so much to say, but the ‘damn keyboard doesn’t suit his paws. We’re immediately hooked and want to know more about Kaalicharan.
The earlier blog articles were from Kaalicharan’s inner monologue. They were very personal and brought a smile on your face, from lines like, ‘You’re safe lady, the only females I kill are mosquitoes,’ to thought-provoking articles like A Gift for God we assure you that this blog is very unique and worth your time.
Over recent years, Kaalicharan’s voice seems missing. However, since this blog is 11 years old, we can understand there were massive changes that took place in Abhishek Joshi’s (the real blog owner) personal lives.
Their current articles are very detailed, helpful and informative, but they no longer follow the first-person point of view (or, in this case, a dog’s point of view). Though we miss Kaalicharan, we cannot undermine how helpful this blog continues to be among dog parents in India.
Our only criticism, however, is a particular limitation in the blog design. A person wanting to maneuver through the pages must scroll all the way down to use the search bar. The articles are not segregated in different categories; hence, it is tough to know how many categories they have covered and also the number of articles they have written under each category.
Currently, Abhishek Joshi, continues to spread awareness about animal safety, protection and care through his blog and his Twitter handle.
An excellent blog is one that inspires, motivates and makes you feel like you are a part of the community. The ‘Dog with Blog’ checks all the boxes when it comes to a good dog blog. It began at a time when fewer Indians had dogs. We’re sure many of us became pet parents because Kaalicharan was there to guide us through the process.
2. Dog Express
There are a few online dog magazines in India and Dog Express is one of them. They do cover mainstream trending topics on dogs, but their main highlight is the dog news section where they discuss new rules, regulations, media coverage of dogs in India.
The website is fast, current, user-friendly and strives to provide their readers with the best possible content. They are also very active on social media and make it a point to post at least once every few days.
Their sincerity and frequency make it clear how passionate they are about dogs and want to make sure you receive the most authentic information about them. They also cover some really inspiring stories about dogs.
All dog parents love to read about the bonds we share with our dogs. It also helps non-dog owners to understand this unique bond a human can have with their dog. This is why we love this blog so much. It creates a sense of love and unity among the Indian dog parent community.
As a dog parent, the community is so much more colourful with dog express around the block.
1. Dharmasala Animal Rescue
We rated Dharmasala Animal Rescue’s blog as the best dog blog in India because they have updated, consistent and authentic content. Most of their articles answers questions Indian dog parents have all the time. But, it is their inspirational stories, personal stories that steal the limelight of the blog.
Dharmashala Animal Rescue is a rescue center in Himachal Pradesh with a primary focus to save, vaccinate and protect dogs in need. This is why many of their articles are centered around animal protection and adoption.
Since they have other articles written for pet parents, they do cover a broad spectrum of non-adoption related articles. But their emotions towards animal adoption is very evident and seen as a common theme in more their articles.
For instance, their article about PTSD among dogs talks about PTSD symptoms among dogs, why it can happen, and what you can expect. But the article is written by someone who has adopted a dog from the streets. Her dog has Canine PTSD (CPTSD) because of the violence and ill-treatment they faced on the road.
Though they are an Animal Shelter, their content is top-notch and at par, if not better, than any other pet magazine. They even have dedicated portfolios of all dogs that are up for adoption in Dharmashala. This not only personifies every rescued pet but encourages us to save a dog in need.
So, here is our list of the best dog blogs in India. Bear in mind that the blogs we chose here were strictly our opinion. There are many dog blogs in India, and we wanted to showcase the most unique, top-notch blogs that deserve a lot more publicity than they have.
We hope they grow and consistently publish great content. Do support these blogs by checking out their content and let us know what you think of them.
