Hi there, it’s Petya here…

About Petya Natcheva And Lissa DogsAndClogs

(That beauty in the photo above is Lissa. My boyfriend and I saved her from the cold streets of Bulgaria. Someone dumped Lissa and her brother on the street).  

After I’ve dated my boyfriend for 3 months, he noticed that I get super excited whenever I see a dog (if I had a tail, it would be wagging)…

… He even got a tiny bit annoyed at some point, since I was talking about dogs the whole time (in his defense, I’m a dogaholic)…

… When I told him that I was fed up with my call center job, he told me…

“Hey Petya, you’re like the Bulgarian Dog Whisperer. People come specifically to you for advice. So why don’t you start a site about dogs, and share your experiences with the rest of the world?”

Between you and me:

I was afraid. My face must have looked something like -> 😨.

But in the days that followed, I started to think more and more about it. I kinda had my “Matrix Moment”…

Should I take the blue pill? Or the red pill?

(Weird fact: I’ve never watched The Matrix. I’ve only watched the part with the blue and the red pill. Hence this metaphor).

I decided to take the red pill. And that’s when I started this website with my boyfriend’s help (he’s a website designer and copywriter in one).

You might wonder…

Why is your website called Dogs And Clogs?

It’s a funny (and silly) story…

The thing is:

My boyfriend is Dutch, and we went on a trip to the Netherlands to meet his family…

During this trip I discovered “clogs” (these are wooden shoes). I’ve even sat in a huge clog when we visited Amsterdam for a day:

After our trip, we’ve had to come up with a name for our website. Since the clogs were still fresh in mind, I came up with Dogs And Clogs.

And that’s it 🙂

But enough about me, let’s talk about you…

How can I help you today?

Simply pick the breed that you want to discover more about (or click here for FAQ about dogs in general).…

“But Petya, I still want to learn more about you…”

Ok. You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram & LinkedIn.
