I'm Chris Rolczynski, a gay dog dad living in Los Angeles. After getting my dog Frankie, I quickly realized two things:
1) Dogs are super special to lgbt+ people.
2) Dogs make it easier for humans to connect.
That's why I created Dudes With Dogs®, to provide a safe space for lgbt+ dog lovers (and our friends, family, and allies) as we share this special part of our lives.
But after 5+ years on Facebook, I’ve realized that for most of you, sharing photos with distant strangers simply isn’t enough.
In other words, you want to CONNECT.
For friends, dog park buddies, neighbors to watch your dog when you go away for the weekend, or even a partner who loves dogs as much as you.
An actively managed community with a caring Host (me!) and Moderators.
Simple member discovery with features like Members Near You and Favorite Breed.
Topics and Content based on the needs of dog dads (and moms!).
And as our network grows, Cities, Directories, and Meetups.
We want you to join and have removed all roadblocks!
We have a free option, but we hope you'll choose to support our work.
After all, we spend countless hours each day supporting and encouraging you guys on each of our three platforms (including Facebook and Instagram). Additionally, this software isn't ad-supported and we have to pay for it out of our own pocket.
Please support us so we can continue to support you.
