Hi, my name is Jacob. I create world-class guides for world-class people who want to become world-class dog parents. If that’s you, then welcome to my site – I’m truly happy you’re here!
You probably want to know more about me and DOG IDEAS, since you are looking at my About page (yeah, I’m clever like that). So here we go, the fascinating story about Jacob:
The story of a beautiful companionship
I was born and raised in East Zealand, Denmark and this is where my love for dogs started.
At an early age (I think I was about 3 years old), my parents got me a puppy for Christmas.
Naturally, I was ecstatic.
Then the year after they gave me a little sister.. yeah.. but at least they got the dog right. 😉
Anyway, that dog followed me everywhere and was always there to greet me when I came home. Always happy and excited to see me.
I loved that dog.
Bamse was his name, which means teddy bear in Danish.
He was a crossbreed and I’m not entirely sure between what exactly, but I may ask my mother for a photo and upload it here at some point in the future.
She probably also has a few photos of my little sister hidden away somewhere in the basement that I could show you, but who cares about that, right? 🙂
My dog was my best friend. A true and faithful companion.
He wasn’t just a pet, he was family (unlike my adopted sister – I can’t prove that though).
If you have a dog yourself, you know what kind of friendship I’m talking about. If you have a cat, sorry, you don’t know what I’m talking about. Please get a dog, you can thank me later!
Today, I still surround myself with our furry, four-legged companions.
I’m not a kid anymore and my first dog is long gone, but I’ve had a few others since then.
I’ve even trained and competed in dog agility, which is a lot of fun for both dog and owner. I really recommend that for anyone who is interested in spending quality time with their dogs.
The two dogs you see on the photo above are mine, they mean the world to me.
I should probably also mention my wife in case she reads this – love you honey! 🥰
We got married in 2015 in Tuscany, Italy. It doesn’t get more romantic than that.
Why I created DOG IDEAS
By now, it should be obvious that I care about dogs and I have a lot of experience with them.
People often tell me about things they wish they had known before they got a dog.
If you’re a first-time dog owner, you probably have a lot of questions too.
I want to address all of these issues and show you how to become the best dog parent ever.
I’ve already helped thousands of people (and dogs) since I started this site back in 2017.
Since then, DOG IDEAS has grown into one of the most popular dog sites online. 👏
All good things must come to an end
Don’t worry, there’s still plenty more for you to read and discover here, so do stick around.
