Maggie Moo: Our fearless leader (at least in her mind).

We help dog parents spend more time with their pups.

Looking for a restaurant patio or brewery where your dog will soon be greeted by name? Dive into our dog-friendly directory. Want to find a cool dog-friendly activity for next weekend? See our ever-changing events page. Dog parks? Yes please. And for homegrown content you won’t find anywhere else, head to our blog.

If there’s a tasty pup-centric morsel that Sidewalk Dog Media hasn’t sniffed out, we want to hear from you. (Don’t forget to tell us about your dog!)

We’re also #1 at making wag-worthy connections between brands and dog lovers. Head to our Advertise page for a quick sniff.

(We support rescues, shelters, and other nonprofits with content featuring adoptable pups; free and discounted advertising; fundraisers online and in person; and more.)

Meet the Pack

Ali Jarvis sidewalk dog

Ali Jarvis

Founder + CEO

Like a Border Terrier who’s never ready to end the game of fetch, Ali is a Pack Leader who tenaciously maximizes every opportunity life throws at her. Ali specializes in attracting good people, bringing effective ideas to light, and relating anything and everything to dogs (just try her). Other than that, she loves spending quality time with her family, including Maggie Moo the Cavalier (aka World’s Snuggliest Blanket) and Molly Roo, whose DNA results claim is Boxer, Pit Bull, Malamute, and – wait for it – Pekingese.  A regular on TV and radio, Ali’s numerous awards include Woman of Influence (Pet Age Magazine) and Business Owner of the Year (National Association of Women Business Owners – MN Chapter).
