WE LIKE DOGS. A LOT.
We are a small, hardworking team who *really* loves dogs. Our mission is to share the beauty and joy of dogs with as many people as possible, every day, through photographs, videos, books, and our apparel. The Dogist was created in 2015 by our founder – Elias Weiss Friedman – who missed having a dog and wanted to tell the stories of all the dogs he saw. Since then, we have slowly been building and spreading this mission far and wide.
