Dog Fancy was a monthlymagazine dedicated to dogs, owners of dogs, and breeders of dogs. It was founded in 1970 and is described by its publishing company BowTie Inc. as "the world’s most widely read dog magazine". BowTie Inc. also publishes its sister magazine Dog World and Cat Fancy for cats and their owners. The editorial office is in Irvine, Calif., and the statement of ownership in the December 2009 issue says the paid circulation is 202,000 copies. In August 2008, it began publishing a quarterly double issue entitled Natural Dog on the flip side of Dog Fancy. In late 2014, I-5 Publishing announced that the monthly magazines Cat Fancy and Dog Fancy would be cancelled, and replaced with alternating bimonthly issues of Catster and Dogster beginning in February 2015.
