About Us

Puppy Tip is run by real dog owners with real-life experience. As pet parents ourselves, we know you probably have a million questions about training and raising a happy, healthy pup.

By sharing our stories and insights, we hope to inspire, encourage, and educate more pupper lovers, whether they’re new to dog ownership, or just looking for a little extra info.

Since we know how important your fur babies are, we also work closely with a number of animal specialists, including veterinary technicians and dog trainers to make sure we’re always providing the best and most current advice.


Take a minute to get to know us and our four-legged friends.

Because we love our furballs as much as you do, we make it a priority to only recommend things that we’d trust with our own pets and either have used personally or would use if needed.

Keep in mind, though, that this website is not meant to replace a veterinarian or veterinary advice. If you have any concerns about your dog’s health, please consult a vet.
