Do you love to celebrate life with your dog? Of course you do! Our love of including our dogs in every aspect of our lives–from restaurant dining to daily walks to weekend getaways–inspired us to launch DogTipper in 2008.
I’m Paris Permenter, co-founder of DogTipper along with my husband, John Bigley. Based in Austin, Texas, we’re longtime travel guidebook writers, cookbook authors, day trip afficionados–and, most importantly, devoted pet parents.
John and I are the authors of The Healthy Hound Cookbook (Simon & Schuster) and 35 other pet and travel books. Our latest cookbook was featured in USA Today, Woman’s Day, Rachael Ray Every Day, Natural Awakenings, Mother Earth News, Dogster and other magazines.
We live in the country just outside Austin, Texas–and the favorite parts of my day are my dog walks–and making dog treats!
We love taking our dogs on our day trips and daily excursions, whether that’s a fun day trip to a local lake or river, a lunch at a dog-friendly patio restaurant, or just running errands with our four-legged family members.
