WoofWhiskers’ Dogs

While we are deeply committed to educating dog owners about food, we also cherish the joyful moments spent with our own furry friends. WoofWhiskers wouldn’t be complete without our team of four-legged taste-testers who provide the real-world feedback on the products we review. Meet the diligent dogs of WoofWhiskers who do the real “ruff” work!


Pidgy, the spirited Huskie/Shepherd mix and Kartoffel’s sister, may be lighter at 45 pounds, but she doesn’t let size dictate the fun. Her rough-and-tumble playstyle is a testament to her bold spirit and zest for life, making her a fierce competitor in playtime and an adorable member of our team.


Then there’s Sasha, a feisty Border Collie/Shepherd/Cattle Dog mix with an unquenchable thirst for adventure, especially when it involves a chipmunk chase. Weighing in at 55 pounds, Sasha’s current obsession with automatic ball launchers keeps her moving and exemplifies the energy we aim to encapsulate in all our endeavors at WoofWhiskers.


Kartoffel, a buoyant blend of Australian Shepherd, Bernese Mountain Dog, and Golden Retriever, brings a whopping 90 pounds of joy to our team. His boundless energy is only matched by his love for toys. Tennis balls and chewables are his go-to joy, and he’s often the first to test the resilience of the toys featured in our durable dog toy recommendations.
