About Us

We are real dog owners with real-life experience. For the past 10 years, we have struggled with the same problems as you and have learned a lot along the way. Our goal is to share the knowledge we’ve gained so that you can build the best possible relationship with your dog, whether you’re just starting out or have been a pet parent for some time. We will guide you through the puppy years and beyond.

PuppyTip is a trusted brand and has been featured in major publications such as Mic, Best Life, Matador, and more. Each and every article we publish is written by one of our in-house experts, who have years of experience, and is packed with advice you can trust. We also have a strict editorial policy and we always follow specific guidelines to ensure that our content is up to scratch. 

We also include affiliate links in some of our posts, which may result in a small commission for us. This does not affect the price you pay or the quality of the product. In fact, if a reader returns a purchase because they feel dissatisfied, we earn no affiliate commission. This means that we can remain unbiased, honest, and independent. Please refer to our Privacy Policy page for more details.
