The Alpha Dog Blog, DOGTV’s official blog, has been nominated for DogTime’s 2012 Pet Blog Award, called the Petties.

DOGTV has selected the Escondido Humane Society, an open-door shelter with a 97-year history in northern San Diego County, to be its beneficiary should the Alpha Dog Blog win.
Coined as the Oscars of the pet blog world, the Petties recognizes pet-centered blogs around the nation in ten categories including Best Cat Blog, Best Blog Post, Funniest Blog or Blogger, Best Overall Pet Blog, Best Video post and more.
“We are beyond thrilled to be considered one of the finalists for the best dog blog,” said Ron Levi, chief content creator at DOGTV. “The Alpha Dog Blog is a one-stop blog for everything related to dogs and features a diverse blogger rooster with experts from all facets of pet care. We created this blog as a place for dog owners to find relevant and helpful expert information as well as to connect with other pet owners.
“The Escondido Humane Society has been a wonderful contributor to our efforts and I hope we can win the donation for them,” he added.
