Do You Love Small Breed Dogs As Much As I Do?

PLEASE NOTE: Dog Garden Flags are currently unavailable. Please check back later. Thanks for your interest.

Welcome to My Passion Project!

I'm Brooke and my passion for art and dogs led me to create this online home for small dog information and inspiration!

Through the years, I've collected all kinds of valuable info through interviews with rescue groups, conversations with breed enthusiasts, and time spent with show dog hobbyists, dog-loving friends, clients and breeders, and I still somehow found time to paint...

So, I hope you'll enjoy spending time here! Making dog lovers sm:)e is what it's all about. And nothing would make me happier or make me smile more than ending the suffering of our four-legged friends in puppy mills, so I hope you'll join me in making this happen.

Still, these invaluable dog training tips are among the most important when it comes to the relationship you share with your dog. Happy owner = Happy dog. ♥
