The undisputed first internet source for global dog news, training, canine nutrition and health information by veterinarians, dog show judges and SAAB members.


The Dog Fancy Goes Mainstream

Having launched Video Express International and officially videotaped Crufts Dog Show in England, Bill and Barbara Andrews attended the 1998 NAB Conference in Dallas as the security-cleared guests (our Embassy had just been bombed) of Lawrence Lindsey who gave the feature seminar "Presenting Network News."


At the Nat. Assoc. Of Broadcasters conference, they shared a drink with Ted Turner (founder of Turner Broadcasting which became CNN) who introduced the Andrews to Rupert Murdoch, President of News Corp. which today is Fox News.


Encouraged by the media giants, Bill Andrews decided the emerging internet would need a dog-site. In a "meant to be" coincidence, the tech who serviced our Tri-State Plumbing Company computers knew a guy who was building an inventory website for Nike Shoes...


Thus became the world's first public website in 1998.


As hundreds of users quickly became thousands, the first online database became The Dog-e-Book, a free "yellow pages" for dog breeders, exhibitors, judges, and dog show clubs. It was revolutionary and in 2022 remains as the quickest connection source for 1.2 million dog owners, breeders, and dog show judges.
