So you only want the best for your dog, huh?
We hear you.
DogLab is a list of the best treats, gear and gadgets for dogs, helping you save time and avoid the stress of figuring out what to buy.
We appreciate that your dog is unique…
- A great food bowl for Golden Retriever won’t suit your flat faced Pug.
- What might be a durable play toy for a Shih Tzu will be torn to shreds by your Pitbull.
- A comfortable fitting dog harness for a Labrador will slide right off your Corgi
As proud dog parents ourselves, we understand your needs.
Our recommendations are made through vigorous testing by our veteran journalists and researchers.
But the most important members of our team?
Every single item you see on this website has been chewed, chased and drooled on by our team of testing dogs, across a broad range of breeds.
Our dedicated team works tirelessly to pick out the best gear for your dog. We then share our opinion on a wide range of dog products with you.
We pride ourselves on only recommending products that we would give to our own dogs
How we make money
I’ll level with you… A lot of time and money goes into creating our detailed reviews. In fact, each review can take dozens or even hundreds of hours to complete.
It’s not exactly a cheap project.
Like you, we have hungry doggies to feed. So in order to fund their eating habits, money has to come from somewhere.
We considered display advertising. For a second. Do you really want to read an article with ads flashing in your face? We don’t. That’s why we decided to go with affiliate commissions…
You may have noticed that each of our reviews contains links to buy the product.
Often (but not always) our work is supported through an affiliate commission from the retailer when you make a purchase through these links. This doesn’t cost you a cent.
Does affiliate commissions make you biased?
Actually, it’s the opposite. Affiliate commissions encourage us to cut down on bias.
If you don’t buy the product, return it because it sucks, or disagree with our recommendation, we make nothing.
And besides, we’ll happily recommend a product that doesn’t have an affiliate program – as long as it is the best.
So as you can see, it’s a pretty fair system that keeps us motivated to find the best products for you and your dog.
We think this is the best and most honest method of monetizing our website, leaving you free to enjoy our great content without intrusive ads.
And besides, our dogs have major input as to which products are picked. Have you ever met a biased dog?
The most important thing is the trust you grant us.
If we were to recommend something because we were biased or lazy, readers like you wouldn’t support our work.
We encourage you to fact check our reviews, which carefully outline the time, logic and effort made by both our team and our dogs to determine our top picks – Judge for yourself!
What about the products you review?
Products that featured in our physical reviews are purchased by us at full retail price.
We pay the same price that you would pay. Most of the time, products are sourced from Amazon.com, since it stocks more products than any other retailer. Other places we buy products from include:
Once a review is complete, we donate most products to local dog shelters.
