About Us

Puppy Tip is a dog advice website created by real dog owners with real-life experience.

As pet parents ourselves, we understand that dogs are family and that you may have questions about how to train and raise a happy, healthy pup. Fortunately, we have lots of great tips to share!

We also work closely with animal specialists such as veterinary technicians and dog trainers to make sure we give you the best information possible.

Our goal

To inspire and educate fellow pupper lovers, whether they’re new to dog ownership or just looking for a little extra info.

How we create content

All of our articles are researched and written by pet experts and independent freelance writers, and we always fact-check and ensure the accuracy of what we post.

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 your local vet.

Sometimes, we also review products, courses, and services. These posts contain affiliate links and we may earn a small commission through them, at no additional cost to you.

We try to only recommend things that we either have used or would use. Because we love our fur babies as much as you do, we would never suggest anything we don’t fully stand behind or believe in.

Making a difference

Every month, we donate a percentage of our revenue to Hope for Paws, a non-profit animal rescue organization, based in Los Angeles, California.

Please help us save more animals and make a small donation.
