Working as a pet nfluencer for about 5 years, I’m proud to be able to influence pet parents to make the most of life with their pets. I get to do that through my dog mom blog and social media. But I get really excited when my dog mom lifestyle is featured in the press because it allows be to reach even more people.
Through my media features in The Wall Street Journal, Good Morning America and others I’ve been able to reach over 6 million people!
Check out a few of my favorite interviews and features below. If you’re a journalist, blogger or podcaster looking for a dog mom lifestyle expert, please reach out. I’d love to chat with you!
Press Features About The Dog Mom Lifestyle
Wall Street Journal: What That Pandemic Puppy Will Cost You
This feature from January 2021 is one of my proudest features! A few quotes from the article include: “Tori Mistick, who does podcasts on dog ownership, lives in Pittsburgh with her two 8-year-old chocolate Labrador retrievers, Burt and Lucy. She saves on their food by joining dog-food rewards and loyalty programs. For instance, when she receives a 20%-off coupon, she purchases five bags of food at once.”
“One of Ms. Mistick’s dogs is epileptic, and his medication would normally cost about $300 a month. But she buys his epilepsy meds to control seizures through GoodRx for Pets, an online discounter that offers coupons that lower the price to $60 a month.”
“Many professional groomers have released videos on how to trim nails yourself, which could save you about $15, says Ms. Mistick. She does all her dogs’ grooming herself, saving hundreds of dollars a year.”
Good Morning America: Pet Separation Anxiety
In an episode of Good Morning America that aired on May 2, 2020, Burt showed off some of his separation anxiety and I demonstrated how I use a “goodbye routine” to help the dogs overcome the stress of me leaving the house. This was an especially relevant story after pet owners hadn’t been apart from their pets for months during the Covid quarantine.
