I love dogs. But am not a pedigree-breeds only fanatic. Rather, a heartfelt admirer of dogkind's godliness and infinite capacity of unconditional love. Having had the privilege of parenting five fur-kids so far, along with years of caring for and volunteering for the strays, I felt obliged to create Godly Dogs. My aim with this website is to help as many dogs as possible, by walking their humans through my experience cum research based suggestions/solutions to all their pooch issues. Because, I believe these angels on earth deserve nothing short of the best. They are man's best friend, and it's time we be theirs too!


We're all ears!
