We promote dogs and dog products.

Canine Culture stands alone for its singular and passionate focus on dogs. No doggie bone will be left unturned, as we look deep inside the issues pertaining to health, lifestyle, business and entertainment. Canine Culture’s mandate is to be the authority on all these disciplines. If it barks, we’ll print it, and we’ll air it. We’ll be dog-on it!

Producing a television series that focuses on the complex relationship between humans and canines is a natural progression in the dog-loving life of Bianca Kapteyn. Her journey has taken her from the dogs of New York jazz legends to the canine-friendly streets of Toronto.

The Canadian-born Kapteyn grew up in Brooklyn, New York, where fate delivered Judy, her first adopted dog, sealed in a box and abandoned in a trashcan. This rescue effort was followed by another. She found her second adoptee, Lassie, in Coney Island, cowering in an alley between an amusement arcade and a subway entrance. And when the late, legendary jazz composer and bassist Charles Mingus took ill, Bianca’s late stepfather, renowned jazz tenor sax player, Duke University Emeritus Dr.Paul H. Jeffrey adopted Brunhelda, Mingus’s German Sheppard.

A former fashion buyer, publicist, freelance marketer, and television producer, Bianca Kapteyn participated in the creation of Toronto’s Woofstock, the largest outdoor festival for dogs  anywhere. From its inception, hundreds of thousands of dog owners and their pet have converged annually  to sample products, participate in doggie fashion events and talent shows and to sniff. Her television credits include Pet Fashion Television, where she was a producer/director and writer, and CBC’s Steven and Chris  show, where she was a consultant on pets. A mother of two boys, she’s also the ” human” of Otis, a European Wheaten Terrier.
