For 130 years Our Dogs Newspaper has been championing the cause of pedigree dogs. The first issue dated January 5th 1895 was published and printed in the city centre of Manchester and sold to a new and eager pedigree dog community. Within a very short time Our Dogs, now the only weekly dog newspaper in the world, became the go to source for news, opinion, judges’ critiques and matters covering the world of pedigree (purebred) dogs. Its creation was the brainchild of Theo Marples who gathered a group of likeminded people together to make canine history.
