About DogEvals

Welcome to DogEvals! 

DogEvals is a compilation of (mostly dog) book, magazine and DVD reviews; product evaluations; blogs and articles; training course and seminar reviews; and more. We also spotlight dog-related companies.

Have you ever wondered just which training book to buy or which harness to purchase? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each? How do they compare? Is the price worth it? 

Our goal is to provide you with real-life, real-world information so you don't waste time and money researching the product yourself.

Tell us what you want to know, so we can save you valuable dog-time!

Skye Anderson has been reviewing (mostly dog) books since 2004 for a regional dog publication as well as an international educational organization, independent bookstores, authors, publishers, and newsletters. Books are obtained from publishers, authors, libraries and bookstores. Products are purchased or received gratis. Books and products are often then donated to rescues and shelters.

Skye has been a reward-based dog trainer for many years, active with shelters and dog rescues in various capacities. She has taught classes and is now offering private lessons in training and behavior. Skye loves educating people about puppies, socialization, enrichment, and canine obesity. She has been an active Full Member (#69334) of APDT (Association of Pet Dog Trainers) for several years, was the sole American Red Cross Pet First Aid Instructor-Trainer for the Baltimore Chapter, and writes a dog blog for the Patch online newspapers as well as articles about dogs. She attended an advanced canine massage school this past year to add to her skills and is now an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator (#88459). 

Skye holds an advanced degree in Genetics (avian cytogenetics) with a background in experimental design (statistics) and has taught at the college level.

DogEvals is always seeking additional reviewers as well as new dog books and dog-related items (toys, treats, etc) to review and evaluate. For more information on becoming a member of the DogEvals team or to offer a book or product for review or evaluation, please see the Contact Page. We look forward to hearing from you!

We hope to have information on new Kong, West Paw, PlanetDog, RuffWear, Orvis, and LLBean products - and more - in the near future!

Reviews and evaluations are the opinions of the reviewer only.
