Meet the Team

We’re a team of dog owners and lovers, approaching the subject of canine-human bond with passion and professionalism. Our team consists of regular members and contributors who work with Top Dog Tips remotely. We’re headquartered in Austin, Texas – America’s most dog-friendly city.

After launching in 2013, we’ve set out to provide a vast and varied amount of high quality content, accurate tips and advice on dog ownership. As our editor-in-chief and face of Top Dog Tips, you will see Samantha doing extensive How-To and homemade dog food recipe videos, and product giveaways.

We consistently bring in industry experts and professionals for the most up-to-date information and continue to test and review products for dogs to help new and existing pet owners navigate the complex eco-system of pet brands, supplies and companies.

If you’re interested in joining the team, looking for partnership opportunities or becoming a contributor, simply get in touch with us.
