Dogbark.com (11.20.17 NOTICE) Late last week we heard from members that websites hosted at dogbark.com were down and unresponsive. After investigating, general counsel Thomas Maddrey, with assistance from an ASMP national board member (a dogbark.com customer), determined that ASMP should no longer link to or support dogbark.com as their response to this situation has been lackluster at best. Further, it appears that this business has been bought and sold possibly two or more times, and these changes have resulted in poor service and downtime. From this point forward, ASMP will no longer list dogbark.com as a recommended benefit partner. Thank you.
