The Nation's Newspaper For Breeders and  Pet Owners

Dogs, Cats, Horses, Pet Health and More!


SUBSCRIBE NOW! Click Link Lower Left CornerNational Pet Press was the first multi-species print publication newspaper (2007).  It was designed to keep all animal owners on the cutting edge of subjects such as Pet & People Health


With prominent professional writers from the dog, cat, and horse world, it was professionally edited by Barbara J. Andrews and Derek Clontz, former editor for a syndicated daily newspaper and subsequently chief editor of one of the most successful newsstand publications.  Original artwork and illustrations were by Dick Kulpa, one of the most talented illustrators in the field of newspaper and "checkout line" publications.


 The newspaper, printed in full color by a SC newsprint company, was comparable in size and format to the National Enquirer.  It was nationally distributed and well received at dog, cat and horse shows, including National Steeplechase, Quarter Horse and Arabian Horse events.


NPP was freely circulated at the Westminster Dog Show until another publication filed a formal complaint.  The multi-species newspaper was subsequently sabotaged by other print publications, the internet was booming, and ultimately, National Pet Press went the way of Dog World, Western Horseman, Dog Fancy, Cats Magazine and other print publications.


Unfortunately, it was an idea whose time had passed.
