Home for New and Existing Dog Owners

Welcome to Top Dog Tips, a site that helps new and veteran dog owners make informed decisions about their pets' health, care and products based on advice from the experts.

Top Dog Tips is owned and operated by the pet-loving father and son duo Dave and Connor Knight. Their love for dogs inspired them to decide to invest in a pet publishing blog, AKA Top Dog Tips!

If you've ever tried to find information about training your newly adopted puppy, how to deal with a health problem of an aging dog or which type of pet product is worth investing in, then you know that a lot of the advice out there is conflicting or difficult to decipher.

Top Dog Tips' mission statement is to provide dog parents with accurate and in-depth information on any canine-related subject that is based on evidence, testing and years of experience.

Our team try to provide all content straight from the horse's mouth, written by professionals – veterinarians, certified dog trainers, working pet groomers, animal scientists and industry insiders – in an easy to understand language.

When it comes to pet supplies, our editors buy, test, review and rank them to ensure that whatever you choose to buy for your pooch is worth the cost.

We're obsessed with everything “Dog,” so if you're after an extensive library of expert dog care, health, nutrition and product tips, then you've come to the right place!
