The DogTrekker staff is made up, quite naturally, of folks who love dogs. We count on our furry friends to sniff out and put paws to the test on all the places we tell you about in the DogTrekker newsletter and here on DogTrekker.com. Here's a look at our contributors and their inspirations.
DogTrekker founders Roxanne and Dave Kendrick have spent decades trekking with their dogs, most recently with "Research Lab" Kayla. They, along withCoco, Lola, Tiffy, Little Dog, Taffy, Kiko and Thumper, have provided a lifetime of love and joy and are the true inspiration behind DogTrekker. Dave@DogTrekker.com
Janet Fullwood, our newsletter wordsmith, lives and travels with a water-loving, bird-finding Brittany named Bodacious, whose activity level can be described as 15 on a scale of 1 to 10. Her much calmer English pointer, Bonnie, rounds out the pack. Irish setters also have played a big part in Janet's life, along with the occasional mutt that became a cherished family member.
Mary Eisenhart, our writer/researcher and rescue maven, Cash, a trusty border collie/Lab mix who brings a dedicated work ethic to ball chasing.
Roger Coryell, our Vice President of Operations, marketing strategist and chief kennel helper, is herded around at home by Rowdy, an Australian shepherd mix who is writer Mary's onetime foster-dog. Roger@DogTrekker.com
Kim Paternoster, our wicked coder, describes Beemer, her 12-year-old chow/golden mix (otherwise known as "The B") as "a breathing floor rug."
Michelle Imbach, our illustrator, fills her leisure time with Riley, a wild and wooly golden-doodle puppy; and Chloe, an American Eskimo/chow/hound mix with a magnetic attraction to water.
Suzanne Amelung, our graphic designer, shares her life with a Weimaraner named Indee, a Rottweiler named Oso and a pit mix who answers to Roxy.
