Glee’s Joy Tour - Why We're Doing It

We started Goldn in order to elevate the human experience through our dogs – by learning from them to better ourselves. Glee, our exuberant and joyful Golden Retriever, is the inspiration behind Goldn. She came into our lives and showed us how much more we could be as people. Her natural openness and empathy, in stark contrast to the national mood at the time, made us feel that our dogs could be a guiding force in helping to better ourselves and the way people interact. Goldn was born out of this idea. It seeks to help people deepen their bond with their dogs, enrich their lives through practical guidance and activities, and give their dogs the best possible care.

The transformative nature of our pups is not limited to the dog-pawrent relationship, however; we feel that all people, even those who don’t have a dog, can benefit from the positive power of our pups. And that transformative nature is needed now more than ever, as our nation has seen increasing levels of anxiety, tech addiction, stress, and negativity. Dogs have the ability to alleviate these issues and imbue society with joy and positivity.

That’s why we set out on our Joy Tour Across The Nation. We’re traveling from sea to shining sea with Glee to meet with people across the country, spread positivity, and spark conversation about how dogs can help us live our best lives.

We hope you’ll follow along. Welcome to our journey!

Jen, Jared and Glee
