Our Story

We are an American small business supporting other small businesses in the USA. in an off-the-beaten-path venture by Mike Hosier. Find Mike on Instagram.

Mike is a retriever enthusiasts and creative entrepreneur, he is a member and volunteers of several local AKC clubs as well as The Golden Retriever club of America.

Since 2002 Mike has operated a solo design studio where he works with small and mid-sized businesses building brands and websites.

Coming from both the design world and the dog world, Mike has had the unique perspective of seeing what works through trial & error from building his, and his customers websites. Also, as an occasional breeder himself, Mike has witnessed first-hand the confusion from the customer side of how to properly find a well-bred retriever, where to look, and what to look for when shopping around. Without a clear path forward he has seen and heard stories of far too many people falling victim of scams or heartache by so-called breeders who don’t understand, or don’t care about health and genetics. Bad breeding practices are both heart-breaking for the dog owner and scar the entire dog community providing fuel to ill-informed anti-breeding messengers who spread hate and attempt to mis-label breeding “as bad” which is just not true. Mike’s hope is that will help change this by educating the public about good breeding practices and offering a website to help connect people with responsible breeders who put in the hard work to preserve and protect these wonderful dogs; all on a platform that is transparent and open to every person on the planet. This is ProLitter.
