“The opportunity to purchase the company was unexpected, but I knew it was a good business decision for Sass Studios. After working on the publication with the former owner for several years, I knew how well it ties into our love of working with pet enthusiasts and publishing magazines. It’s a perfect fit,” said Kim Dow, owner of Sass Studios.

Everyday Dog Magazine provides ideas and advice on a variety of topics, including dog-friendly travel sites, training techniques, health concerns, and DIY projects. The website also shares inspirational stories from around the nation, business spotlights, and a section showcasing a featured rescue dog.
