Kristin Hitchcock

Kristin Hitchcock is an avid pet owner and has been heavily involved in the online pet community. She has spent most of her life volunteering at animal rescues and is a huge supporter of animal rights.

She currently owns a husky-mix but also has experience with a wide range of dogs, cats, reptiles, and fish.

Kristin has a passion for educating the everyday pet owners and helping them care for their pets to the best for their ability. She believes that the key to proper pet care is proper information and education; everyone can be an amazing pet parent if they have the proper information and skills.

She is particularly avid about explaining new, scientific research in easy to understand language. Her interests particularly lie in pet nutrition, dog training, and genetic health.

She believes that when dog owners know their pet’s genetic predispositions, proper nutritional needs, and pet training tactics, everyone will benefit. She enjoys informing pet owners about updated training technics, new genetic screenings, and dog food updates.

However, she is also experienced in a wide variety of other pet issues, ranging from Chinchilla diseases to the highest quality dog brushes. She is never done learning.

She has written for a number of popular pet sites, including The Happy Puppy Site, Cat Life Today, and TheLabradorSite.
