About Us





Canine Zone magazine is the only printed and digital magazine in South Africa aimed exclusively at the dog owner. Our magazine features purebred, crossbreed, shelter and rescue dogs with interesting and sometimes hard hitting features from the world of dogs. We also feature interesting and factual advice on everything from health care, behaviour and nutrition to working with your dog, grooming and general, valuable advice pertaining to dog ownership.








From a welfare perspective, Canine Zone magazine features heart warming stories about hero dogs and dogs who were adopted from shelters and who now lead happy lives in their Forever Homes. In every issue we highlight dogs up for adoption and feature stories about shelters and who we like to call 'animal angels' in our country.


 We have over 8000 highly interactive Facebook fans who we call our “Canine Zoners".  On the Canine Zone facebook page we share advice, information, lost and found dogs, dogs up for adoption, events, product and service news and fun videos about man's best friend.


Canine Zone is available on a bi-monthly basis at Pick n Pay, Spar, Woolworths, C.N.A., Exclusive Books and Builders Warehouse as well as selected pet stores, dog related events and subscriptions - both print and digital. Further distribution of unsold copies is enabled via O&J media to veterinary waiting rooms, restaurants, doctor’s waiting rooms and hotels.
