It's a Wrap: Our 2021 Highlights

December 28, 2021

What was a long 2021, is quickly coming to an end. While there were many low points this year, our dogs were always a high point for us! For Parnell Living Science, the makers of Glyde™ Mobility Chews, we had more new families come to us this year than any other year. Many of you joined the Glyde family for the first time this year. We welcome you and are glad you have joined the list of awesome pet parents who use Glyde for their dogs! Or, maybe you are just learning about arthritis in dogs, and we have become a resource for you. No matter the reason, we are glad you spent part of your 2021 with us. Here are the dog life highlights we shared with you over this past year!

Some exciting news for us here is our readership grew in big numbers this year. We began the year with a little over 24,000 subscriber email addresses and now our e-newsletter list is well over 35,000 subscribers! Our blog won recognition as one of the Top 10 Pet Health blogs to follow for the fourth year in a row. And we continue enjoying sharing information and news you can use about our adorable fur-babies. 

Here are the highlights we hope you saw. Did you miss any? Here's your chance to catch up with what we consider to be our highlights of 2021.

THE TOP 5 BLOG POSTS OF 2021

As a dog health company specializing in helping dogs live happy, healthy lives, we write a lot about how to celebrate our dogs. Here are the top posts you read as we about our dogs in our Pet Health blog!

5. September's "Pet Pain Awareness Month" is often a resource for our pet parents on what to do if your pet is in pain. We have several articles around this issue, but the most popular one was: "How to Tell if a Dog is in Pain"

4. April's Active Dog Month was a big hit, with many people looking at ways to be more active with their dogs and learning about which breed is the most active. There was a new post every week in April, but the "Top 10 Most Active Dog Breeds" was the most popular post.

3. This summer, many people were traveling again so this blog helped with planning: "Traveling with Pets: Packing Pointers" plus a free Downloadable packing list was included.

1. & 2. Our ingredients are hailed as the top powerful ingredients to protect a dog's joints. We've written about them to help you further understand how important they are. Plus, through our partnership with the AKC, many people have read these articles. They are our top and second top blog posts. They are:

"Green Lipped Mussel (GLM) is the Power Behind Glyde"

and

"Glucosamine & Chondroitin for Dogs: the Glyde Difference"

 

Top Breed Blog Posts of 2021

We enjoy a good breed-focused blog post to outline the highlights of a specific breed including why so many of us love this breed and how to keep them happy and healthy. Here are the top 5 dog breeds you read about this year!

5. Great Pyrenees: Big Dogs, Big Hearts, Big Risk

This is no surprise this dog made the list. As giant breed dogs, they are big-hearted and there are lots to love. One of our Parnell employees added the Pyrenees to their family, and we got up close to see how he's grown. So adorable!

4. Labrador Retrievers

Labradors are simply one of the best dog breeds out there, and certainly one of the most popular. We gave lots of information about this fantastic breed and Labrador owners continue to find it!

3. Huskies 

These beautiful dogs are lovely to look at, sweet to have at home but still at risk for arthritis. Read about what great dogs they are!

2. German Shepherds

Our GSD audience is very loyal to their dogs, just as their dogs are to them. They remain on our list as one of the top dog breeds. GSDs are smart, obedient and full of love. Those who are lucky enough to have one, know what a great dog they really are.

1. Golden Retrievers
