THE CANINE REVIEW launched on November 20, 2019.

We are a magazine and news service whose mission is to do consumer reporting for sophisticated dog owners, and to provide fair, complete, and unvarnished information related to dogs. We believe that caregivers and vendors devoted to treating dog owners and their loved ones professionally and fairly deserve a spotlight – as do those who operate outside those important boundaries. 

The Canine Review provides quality, independent reporting and analysis on topics such as regulatory frameworks for different products affecting canines; business and policy enterprise reporting on pet health insurance, veterinary services, and costs; deeply reported profiles on breeders, animal shelters, rescue organizations, and veterinary hospitals. 

We operate differently from most online news organizations, and we are the only news organization of our kind that covers the pet industry: We do not solicit or accept advertising or sponsored content of any kind, which means that our business model is not based on producing sensational or misleading stories to drive traffic for click bait. Our sole source of revenue comes from reader subscription revenue, which means that we are in the business of accuracy, ethics, and credibility.

We report on everything from pet health insurance to private breeders to regulatory developments related to the pet industry and pet food safety. We are not aligned with a particular group, agenda, business, political ideology, breed, or creed. 

Because consumer reporting is at the heart of what we do, the reporters we hire should not have a conflict or conflicts of interest, and any possible conflicts must be disclosed and discussed with editors before starting an assignment.

In addition to our reports, paying subscribers have exclusive access to a growing database of profiles on dog breeders, animal shelters, veterinary hospitals, and rescue groups across the country. 

We are always looking for talented reporters who meet our high standards.

Write For TCR
For this work, TCR is recruiting and commissioning reporters with substantive experience. You should be an excellent writer with sound news judgment, extensive experience conducting live interviews, and you should understand that TCR operates according to high standards of press ethics. A subject of a story or profile may not be happy with the outcome, but all subjects of TCR's reporting should be able to say that they were treated courteously and professionally; that they were quoted accurately and in context; and that they were treated fairly.

You need not have a background in animals or "pet writing" to join TCR’s team. In fact, since we are bringing professional journalism standards to a free-wheeling industry, the more reporting experience that you bring from outside the animal kingdom, the better.

Please express interest to; attach at least one writing sample.


This is a paid freelance position. Payment is per word and based on your level of experience.


Thank You.
