Who We Are
Our story began with the desire to make the right choices for our dogs. We’re in search of healthier options from companies that we trust. We have insatiable curiosity when doing our research. And because we know other dog parents are unsure of where to turn, we share that knowledge here on our blog.
For the choices we make, we ask:
- Does what we’re doing enhance the life of our dogs?
- Does what we’re doing strengthen our bonds?
- Are we having fun?
OUR MISSION IS TO INSPIRE HEALTHY, ACTIVE, AND FREE-SPIRITED LIVING
Adding a dog or two or more to your family will infinitely improve the quality of your life. We want to maximize our time together. That starts by making healthy choices rooted in wellness. We believe life is for living and so you’ll find us outside at least once a day. Staying active together is a core component of our lives.
And we believe life together with dogs should be exponentially more fun. Laughter truly is the best medicine.
Every day we hold ourselves to our standards because we believe that what you do, how you do it, how you treat your friends, family and dogs… matter. A lot!
OUR VISION IS TO INSPIRE OTHER DOG FAMILIES TO LIVE THEIR BEST LIVES WITH THEIR DOGS
We know you’re inspired when:
- You wake up at sunrise to walk with your dog
- You choose a travel destination because it’s dog friendly
- You start feeding less processed food and more whole, real food
These are just some simple examples. But they matter so much.
Our Core Values
Respect: We respect our dogs for the canine species they are. We refuse to put then in a position that diminishes them as dogs. That’s what makes them marvelous. We do not want to anthropomorphize them and lose sight of what they were bred for.
Just as we as humans want to be the best version of ourselves. We want our dogs to be the best versions of themselves. We want to show our dogs being dogs and not dogs as props or show them doing things that are unnatural to the species. We also know that by deepening our respect and understanding of our dogs it increases our bonds with each other.
Community support and engagement: We believe in being good neighbors and active citizens in our local dog community. We give our time and support to make our local relationships stronger. We aim to bring awareness and foster learning in the areas of dog behavior and socialization.
Having high standards: In all our choices we will educate ourselves to ensure that what we consume, put in, on or around our dog’s bodies enhances their wellness.
Heartfelt bonds: Creating heartfelt experiences with our dogs are the memories we want to treasure.

Minimum campaign – 2 posts + 3 InstaStories. We believe that one-of posts are not effective in getting your story out to our audience and recommend we sit down and create a more integrative campaign for you.
The Best Type of Partnerships
We only work with brands and advertisers that we believe in.
We only work with brands when we feel that introduction of your brand to our audience will bring value and make their lives better.
Living a well lived life with our dogs, and providing the best for them is priority number 1. We also know that our audience and readers have the same commitment to their dogs. We would only provide recommendations that we can vouch for.
On the spectrum of dog products, we veer more towards natural, holistic products:
Dog food and treats
Our two dogs are fed home cooked meals under the guidance of our veterinarian for various skin and allergy issues. Since I support home cooking we no longer work with dog food companies.
As for treats we only feed air – dried or dehydrated treats that are single ingredient. Ideally they are farmed sustainably or ethically harvested.
We use several supplements to balance out Maggie and Orbit’s meals. We’re always on the look out for better quality products. That said we believe every item they consume needs to have a specific purpose and will never trial any products that are unnecessary.
We like our gadgets and have several at home. We’re always on the look out for any products that will enhance our lives with our dogs.
We’re active. We go to the beach and do urban and trail hikes and pack walks. We’re not the best fit for fashion brands because we already have partnerships with the brands we use and love.
Creating shared experiences with our dogs is important to us. We love to travel and share those stories with our community.
How it works
Prior to working together requires that we try and sample your product for at least a month so we can monitor how well it enhances the wellness of our two Bostons.
That means that the products and services you offer are in line with what we use or would use. Please take the time to review our page on Instagram and read our blog to determine if there is a fit. We are only interested in when we can authentically endorse your brand because we believe in you.
If you’re looking for a one off campaign – boosting posts on Facebook or Instagram would be a better option for you.
But if you’re looking for an in depth, memorable and engaging campaign and there is a fit between your company and our dogs, then we can work with you.
Getting to know you
We’d start off by getting to know your values, mission and product benefits. And we’d develop a campaign that tells the story of how we use the product and the benefits it adds our dogs and to our family.
Telling the “story” is of utmost importance to us. It should fit well within your company’s objectives and mesh well with our daily lives. First and foremost we are a dog family. And we put our audience first. We work with products and/or companies we believe in. When you work with us you’re getting visual stories for dog parent/family consumers by dog parent/family consumers.
The campaign will be broadcasted on the various social media platforms we participate in.
We only work with a few brands at a time and space fills up. If you’d like to set up a call to explore the options available, contact us via the link in our Instagram profile or send and email to hello(at)maggielovesorbit(dot)com.
From time to time, when the fit makes sense; Maggie and Orbit are available for dog modeling opportunities.
Product Giveaways, Gifting and Reviews
We handle these on a case by case basis. Due to the paid sponsorships we provide, space for product giveaways are limited to only those items that focus on dog wellness. Also we prefer to build a campaign that we can feature more than once. A one-off campaign will not have the return you are looking for. A lot of time and effort goes into crafting blog articles, photography and posts and we are unable to to do “free product for exposure” campaigns. We can however discuss on a rare occasion the equivalent value in products or services. In these cases we would involve a giveaway to our audience. We value the time they take to read our reviews and as such want to engage them and show appreciation for them.
