We aim to:
Although there's no charge for most of the instructions for how to make our dog products, we do have a few specially engineered dog plans for wheelchairs and ramps, which are available for purchase at a relatively low cost.
Note that we also obtain a small amount of revenue from ads and Amazon or affiliate links (hence the request that you accept Cookies). However, we try to keep those to a minimum so as not to detract from the content.
Thank you for your support!
