As the country’s leading multi-media celebrity pet lifestyle expert and influencer, SANDY ROBINS documents the wonderful relationship that we have with our pets highlighting trends and innovative ideas as they happen.
Many dogs and cats have lifestyles that mirror their pet parents’ own lives. Nothing is too good for our fur kids. Consequently, the pet industry is a 58 billion dollar business – bigger than toys, candy and jewelry combined. Sandy documents this industry every step of the way highlighting how these trends can improve our pet’s general health and well being and enhance our human-animal bond.
She is the 2013 winner of the Excellence in Journalism and Outstanding Contribution to the Pet Industry Award presented by the American Pet Products Association. Previous winners include Dr. Marty Becker, Ellen De Generes and Victoria Stilwell.
Her award-winning work is very visible on many of the country’s leading pet platforms such as Today.com, MSNBC.com and PawNation, AOL’s petcentric website. She is a regular contributor and columnist in multiple national publications such as Modern Dog, Dog Fancy and Cat Fancy as well as industry leaders such as Pet Age magazine and mainstream media such as Consumers Digest. Her work also appears regularly on a variety of prestigious blogs. Every feature or TV appearance breaks new ground as Sandy details everything from state-of-the-art surgical procedures to improve our pets’ wellbeing to the latest haute couture designs and the new home décor trends as they unfold.
Her books include the award-winning Fabulous Felines: Health and Beauty Secrets for the Pampered Cat and For The Love of Cats. Her latest book, The Original Cat Bible is out now.
Sandy is a popular guest speaker and works as a TV lifestyle spokesperson for PETCO. She served as a pet safety advisor for TOYOTA and is aligned with many prestigious companies in the pet industry. She is often quoted in mainstream publications such as Martha Stewart’s Living, The Wall Street Journal, Kiplinger’s and websites such as Fox News and Oprah.com.
She is featured as a guest lecturer at Cat College, the popular online study course offered at CatChannel.com, is a popular radio guest on stations around the country. She has worked in radio hosting her own show Pawsitively Pets Radio, as well as a segment called House Pets on the On The House network which reached a weekly audience of 1.2 million.
If there’s a major event in the pet world, you can count on Sandy being there. She is a regular visitor at all major pet industry expos and a regular attendee at conferences such as the annual Cat Writer’s Conference. She is along-standing member of both the Cat Writers of America and the prestigious Dog Writers of America organizations.
Sandy is an avid campaigner for animal shelters and laws that protect animals everywhere. She is a strong advocator of pet adoption. Every pet deserves a loving permanent home and she has been among the first to point out that shelter pets do benefit from the luxurious lifestyles that other pets are lucky enough to enjoy because over-indulgent pet parents are often the first to give donations and organize fund-raising events to help animals that have been abandoned and neglected.
Because she often travels internationally, Sandy knows what it hot and happening in other parts of the world too.
Of course it goes without saying that she is a besotted pet parent to a menagerie of fur kids at her home in Southern California.
The human-animal bond has never been stronger and the benefits of living with pets have never been more evident. Pets Rule!
