Podcast Episode 193: Celebrating Small Business Saturday with The Dog Guide San Antonio

In this episode, I’m sharing a conversation with Amy Lynn, the founder of The Dog Guide San Antonio. She told me how she got the inspiration to start an online resource of dog-friendly activities, places and things in her city. This guide, through the website and social media, has grown to include dog obsessed events, fundraisers and more. Amy talks about some of the different mutually beneficial ways that she works with local businesses and organizations.

For her site’s 3rd anniversary earlier this year, Amy hosted 30K for Canines, a community pet food drive. The fundraiser not only hit the goal of raising 30,000 pounds of pet food… they actually doubled it!

I thought this would be the perfect interview to share with you this week while we celebrate Thanksgiving in the US and Small Business Saturday this weekend.
