Welcome To Paws Insider!

Hi there, my name is Alex Vicente and I am a Portuguese guy who has been a pet lover and owner for over 30 years now! My first pet was a puppy dog who I named Teddy (even though I really loved the name Spike which I got from the kids show Rugrats). He was part of a litter of four or five puppies but he came running towards me and that’s what got me to take him home with me. He could fit in my dad’s jacket pocket and he loved it. Ever since then I’ve rescued a lot of dogs and also 3 cats.

The idea behind this site is simple. I want this to be your one-stop for everything related to your pet. I know that is an ambitious goal but you have to have some of those in your life!

I’ll put some of my love and knowledge into Paws Insider but I will also invite experts and other knowledgeable people from around the world to pitch in with their tips, tricks, and expertise.

How I Create Content

All the content you will find on this site has been planned and edited to ensure we meet the highest quality standards. I do tend to use freelance writers to help me putting articles together but nothing is put online without a green light from the chief editor. This is to ensure all information we publish is accurate and you can trust it to make purchase decisions.

As much as possible we try to get our hands on the items mentioned in this blog to get real-life experience with them but it is not always possible so we also rely on extensive online feedback from real customers of these items.

We also spend a lot of time in my local stores and talk to their staff to get to know all the items that come out and which ones may be of interest to you.

All in all, we want this site to be a place you can trust and that is not rigged by brand sponsorship so you can use our information to make the best decisions for yourself and your pet.

About Me

Alex Vicente

Dog Lover
Founder and Chief Editor at Paws Insider

I’ve been rescuing dogs since a very early age. I got my first dog when I was 9 years old and I remember how he, out of a litter of 6 puppies, started running towards me. He’d just chosen me. Ever since then, my love for dogs only grows stronger and I want what’s best for them. My mission is to let our readers know about the best products in the market for our best friends, as well as providing guides and tips on how we can take better care of them.
