Review Guidelines

Dog Products Review Guidelines

Our goal at is to provide you with honest, unbiased, and reliable information that will help you make informed decisions when buying products for your dogs.

To achieve this goal, we follow a rigorous and transparent review process that consists of several steps. In this page, we will explain our review process and principles in detail, so that you can understand how we evaluate and recommend products for your dogs.

Our Review Process

Our review process is based on a combination of research, analysis, consultation, testing, and assessment.

We follow these steps for every product that we review:

Safety and Compliance Verification

The first and foremost step in our review process is to verify the product’s safety and compliance with the relevant regulatory authorities and agencies. We check if the product meets the standards and requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO)Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other applicable bodies.

We also check if the product has any recalls, warnings, or lawsuits associated with it. We only review products that are safe and compliant for dogs to consume or use.

User Reviews Analysis

The next step in our review process is to read and analyze hundreds of user reviews from various sources and platforms, such as AmazonChewyTrustpilot, etc. We look for the common themes, patterns, trends, and feedback that users have shared about the product.

We try to understand the pros and cons of the product from different perspectives, such as quality, performance, durability, ease of use, customer service, etc. We also look for any issues or complaints that users have faced with the product or the seller.

We use user reviews as a valuable source of information that complements our own research and testing. However, we do not rely solely on user reviews, as they may be biased, subjective, or inaccurate.

Product Features and Benefits Research

The third step in our review process is to research the product’s history, features, ingredients, and benefits. We dig deep into the product’s background and origin, and learn about its purpose and design. We also compare it with similar products from other brands in the market.

We research the product’s benefits and advantages for dogs of different breeds, sizes, ages, health conditions, and lifestyles. We look for scientific evidence or studies that support the product’s claims or effects. We also consider the potential risks or side effects that the product may have on dogs.

Veterinary and Expert Consultation

The fourth step in our review process is to consult with qualified veterinarians and experts in our in-house team. We have a network of professionals who have years of experience and knowledge in various fields related to dog health and care.

We ask them to evaluate the product’s suitability and effectiveness for different types of dogs, based on their breed, size, age, health condition, and lifestyle. We also ask them to share their opinions and recommendations about the product.

We value their input and advice highly, as they provide us with expert insights and guidance that help us make better judgments and decisions.

Product Testing and Observation

The fifth step in our review process is to test the product ourselves on our own dogs or dogs from our network of trusted volunteers. This step is not always possible or feasible, depending on the availability and accessibility of the product.

However, whenever we can, we try to test the product personally and observe its effects on our dogs. We monitor their reactions and feedback closely, and record their behavior and responses.

Value for Money Assessment

The final step in our review process is to assess the product’s value for money, considering its price, quality, availability, and delivery options.

We compare the product’s cost and benefits with other similar products in the market, and determine if it offers a fair and reasonable deal for dog owners. We also check if the product has any special offers or discounts, such as free shipping, money-back guarantee, etc.

We weigh the product’s value for money against its overall rating and recommendation, and decide if it is worth buying or not.

Our Review Principles

In addition to our review process, we also follow some core principles that guide our work and ensure our integrity and credibility. These principles are:

No Sponsorship Fees or Incentives

We do not accept any sponsorship fees or incentives from any brand or company to review their products or influence our ratings. We are independent and impartial in our reviews, and we do not favor or promote any product over another.

No Review Without Research and Testing

We do not publish any review without conducting thorough research and testing, and verifying the facts and sources. We do not rely on hearsay, rumors, or assumptions. We do not make any claims or statements that we cannot back up with evidence or proof.

No Product That Goes Against Veterinary or State Agencies’ Advice

We do not endorse or recommend any product that goes against the veterinary or state agencies’ advice or poses any risk or harm to dogs or their owners. We do not review any product that is illegal, unethical, or unsafe for dogs to consume or use.
