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.

Veterinary Review Board

Dr. Lyndsey Kingsley Headshot

Dr. Lyndsey Kingsley obtained her doctorate of veterinary medicine from Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine in 2014 after completing an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences with honors.

She worked at a busy brick and mortar practice with a special interest in exotic pets for 2 years before starting a full service housecall practice in Austin, TX in 2016.

She enjoys competitive mountain biking, motocross, and camping with her Swedish Vallhund Fynn in her spare time.

Industry Experts

Top Dog Tips has been in the space for nearly 9 years. We've consistently built relationships with some of the top professionals in their field: Dog Trainers, Veterinarians, as well as Pet Nutritionists.

Please be sure to check out our YouTube as well as our Podcast, Theory of Pets where we have interviews with professionals in the industry.

As of recent, we've partnered with the company BetterVet, a mobile veterinarian experience that provides all major veterinary services conveniently to you.

This was designed for the modern digital landscape to help pet owners around the country with their pets whether in the city or in rural areas.

Our Expert Research and Writing Team

Samantha Randall

Samantha has owned dogs all of her life. She has been with Top Dog Tips for 9 years and is known as a prominent influencer when it comes to pet nutrition and at-home remedies for dogs.

She built our YouTube channel from nothing to now at 135,000 subscribers. Here she gives out all of the experience she's had with any diet issues, skin issues, and other common challenges we dog lovers run into when raising our dog.

Chip Green

Chip recently joined the Top Dog Tips team in 2021. Chip has been passionate about writing for quite some time now, and currently has two dogs, Lulu and Bosco, that he's raised since they were puppies. He's gone through the ups and downs that we've gone through with having a dog.

During the pandemic, he figured that he's been quite successful being a contributor for other blogs, but why not write about the animals that are near and dear to his heart.

Dom Naish

Dom has been a contributor to Top Dog Tips for several years now. He has owned 5 dogs his whole life, currently has three of those five.

Dom has extensive experience dealing with all kinds of breeds and has invested much of his time and money in nutrition and training for his own dogs. When Dom writes for us, you're getting it “straight from the horse's mouth”.

Diana Beth Miller

Diana currently writes for Top Dog Tips and has been with us for about 4 years. Like all dog owners, she's the kind of person who can talk about her dog, Bell, all day. She figured since it was so easy to talk about her own dog, why not share the knowledge she has with others and so she chose Top Dog Tips.

Angie Park

Angie, a native Floridian, from South Florida, grew up in a home with her Mom and Dad, her sister, and their two dogs Sasha and Panda.

Since then, Angie has always had a dog of her own as well as both her parents having their own dogs. Her whole life, all of her dogs were relatively healthy and active into their senior years.

Eventually, about 5 or 6 years ago she realized that most dogs she saw in South Florida, were overweight or had some form of hip problems when her dogs never really had these issues with her dog.

She dug deeper and realized that a lot of the current issues that pet owners deal with today have to do with nutrition.

She decided to team up with us and get the message out there about how important nutrition and exercise were for all dog breeds in order for them to live long, healthy lives.
