Best Pet Print Magazines

We love everything to do with pets. When we’re not writing about them, we’re reading about them. In this day in age, it’s a special feeling to pick up a magazine and flip through its glossy (or eloquently matted) pages. Sometimes, we can be in the mood to learn something new from published experts in the pet care field, while other times we enjoy turning pages of beautiful images, artistically laid out by renowned stylists. However we choose to spend our time away from our computer screens, we’ve found the very best print publications to help us do it in style.

Below is an outline of our favorite print magazines for passionate pet people that you can find around our office or at home on our coffee tables. Want to pick up an issue? Look for direct links below the images for each feature.

Four and Sons

Where dogs and culture collide. Chronicling the work of interesting people and their interesting dogs.

Dogs make a fantastic muse for artists. They’ve been painted and sculpted in thousands of forms for thousands of years, consistently admired and deemed important by the culture of the time. Today, though, with art expressed in so many more forms than ever before, dogs continue to reign as one of the most used muses for artists around the globe.

Across classic mediums such as painting and drawing to more current takes on fashion, music, cooking, baking, design, the natural world and architecture, dogs play a part in artists’ personal lives and the creations of their labors. This is where Four & Sons finds their subjects for their stories.
