DogLab is dedicated to giving you the best guidance on how to care for your pup. Our experts give you reviews of carefully chosen pet products — everything from dog food and treats to toys and accessories. Our reviews also include invaluable tips on dog care, training, and more. Our goal is to help you save time and avoid the stress of figuring out what to buy. As proud dog parents ourselves, we understand your needs.
Our recommendations are made through vigorous testing by our veteran journalists and researchers. Our team has a combined 60+ years of pet journalism experience. But the most important members of our team? Our dogs! Every single item you see on this website has been chewed, chased, and drooled upon by our team of testing dogs across a broad range of breeds.
Our dedicated team works tirelessly to test and 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
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.
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.
Do affiliate commissions make us biased? Not at all. We only recommend products we love and genuinely use. We’ll happily recommend a product that doesn’t have an affiliate program – as long as it’s the best. We think honesty is the authentic way of monetizing our website. Plus, 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.
What About The Products We Review?
We purchase all the products we review at full retail price. We pay the same price that you would pay. Most of the time, we find our products on Amazon.com simply because it stocks more pet 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.
