Gallery: N.J.'s Top Pet: Dogs, medium to large

It's so great to be on a tour where you can tell the person is really passionate about what they do. You will not regret choosing TopDog! Entertaining, fun and learned some stuff I never knew even as a New Yorker.

I’ve taken on maybe eight Padawans in my tenure at Top Dog.

For the latest news relating to the Top Dog competition please visit the following link: Top Dog Rescue rescues both cats and dogs, and frequently has kittens and puppies. At Top Dog, you will find purebreds to mutts, large and small. You will usually not find us at large adoption events, as our focus is on quality versus quantity of adoptions. Our past experience, based upon numbers of returned animals and problem homes, has led us to conclude that the quality of adoptions, on average, done during these big events does not always meet our expectations. Therefore, we limit ourselves to showing our animals frequently at a local PetsMart and occassionally arranging private appointments. For more information about our group and our philosophy, please read the information under the heading "Who We Are".

Instead of large bureaucracy Top Dog is a team of champions designed to execute all the functions required to quickly bring products to market. In addition, by being very selective with their efforts, no product is lost in the shuffle. NPI is run by Bill McAlister who finds new products and takes TV successes to retail, with over a billion in retail sales. "As Seen on TV" products are his specialty. Plymouth Direct headed by Steve Silbiger seeks new products with Bill and runs the TV and web media and services our direct-to-consumer business. If the product was meant to sell on TV, they will get it done, giving our projects their highest probability of a success. It takes a team to win in this business.* Note that buns are expensive in particular because of the volume they occupy in air shipments.
* We ship by fed-ex two day air Mon-Wed for Wed- Fri delivery.
* You tell us when you want the dogs to be shipped, mon-wed and we will confirm by e-mail or phone the tracking number and delivery date. Note also that someone has to be on the other end to sign for the package. Therefore, business addresses work better as shipping addresses.
* There is a $100.00 USD minimum, and payments are by check only to "top dog, 2534 Durant Ave., Berkeley, CA 94704".
