Become a Contributor

Do you have something you’d like to share with the sport and working dog community, but would like a way to reach a wider audience than you can get on your own blog or newsletter?

By becoming a contributor, correspondent, reporter or columnist for K9 Sports Nation you’ll not only be able to gain readership and add a feather to your personal resume, but also help promote your product, service or organization all while being a positive force in helping inform and educate the Sport and Working Dog community.

How can you contribute? We’re looking for:

  • Dog training tips and advice
  • Real-life experiences about access issues
  • Product reviews and recommendations
  • Book reviews and recommendations
  • Event coverage
  • Photojournalists, video journalists, Podcasters
  • Legal tips and advice
  • and more (see our list of Current Assignments)

Become a Contributor
Contributors submit content from time-to-time, but not necessarily on a regular basis and encourage others to contribute material.

Become a Correspondent
Correspondents publicize local work, happenings and events, within their own community, and encourage others to contribute material. Correspondents may include some of their own perspective in their writing, as opposed to a reporter.

Become a Reporter
Reporters can either choose assignments (see our running list below) or, if they have a relationship with us, be asked to cover an event, conduct an interview or other task. Reporters avoid editorializing and tell it like it is.

Become a Columnist
Regular writers may be offered their own branded column at our discretion.

Become a Photographer or Videographer
We’re always looking for professional and semi-professional photographers who work with sport and working dogs!
