Me & My Pets
My name is Dawn Ross. I am the primary owner of www.PetAutoSafety.com and www.PetAutoSafetyBlog.com. And I love animals… especially dogs. I grew up with dogs and have always had at least one in my life. Some special dogs you may see me blog about are Cassie, Smokey, Huckleberry, Becky Anne, Achilles, Sephi, Maya, & Pierson. Cassie was my childhood friend and has since passed on. Smokey, Huckleberry, Becky Anne, and Achilles were my dogs in my 20′s-30′s. They have also passed on. Sephi passed away recently in November 2011. I still have my yellow Labrador Retriever Maya who I adopted in 2007. And Pierson is a new addition as of January 2012. Pierson, an Australian Shepherd mix, has an interesting dog rescue story. Read about it on our AmericanDogBlog.

My Experience with Animals
Not only have I always had dogs, but I’ve also worked with them. I’ve worked at an animal shelter, a veterinary clinic, boarding kennel and I am a certified dog trainer with the Animal Behavior College. I have also fostered dogs, volunteered at animal shelters, and volunteered for a wildlife rescue organization.
How Pet Auto Safety Began
At some point, I got caught up in the corporate world and away from animals. It was okay, it helped pay the bills, but I really wanted to do something I loved. I am an amateur artist and love to draw/paint wild and domestic animals as well as nature scenery. I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I had a website for my artwork? So www.NatureByDawn.com was born. Building a website was so fun I considered building more sites, sites built around my passion for dogs. One idea started years ago when I had Smokey, Becky Anne, and Achilles. Taking the three of them in the car anywhere was a challenge. So I bought them dog seat belts. Since it was difficult to find such a product, I thought a website called www.PetAutoSafety.com would be perfect. PetAutoSafety.com was established in 2006.
