Our Editorial Philosophy

We strive to present narratives with precision and authenticity, avoiding the use of artificial intelligence in our storytelling. Additional insights into our perspective on this technology can be found in our Anti-AI Policy.

When conveying information that might not be readily available to the public or could cast an individual or organization in a negative light, we actively seek their perspective.

In the event of receiving post-publication updates, we commit to either updating existing articles or, when necessary, publishing new ones promptly. Our articles undergo regular assessments every three months, ensuring they align with our commitment to delivering the most relevant and helpful content. Independent experts also review our work to maintain our high standards.

Upon notification of potential inaccuracies in our content, we diligently verify the information and issue corrections if errors are confirmed.

We extend an invitation for a right of reply to anyone featured in our stories. If you believe you or your company has been portrayed unfairly or wish to provide additional context, please reach out to us.

We are committed to not publishing information from sources, whether named or anonymous, without diligent efforts to corroborate it through additional sources. The confidentiality of those providing information anonymously is paramount, and we do not offer monetary compensation for such information.

In instances where we report on information initially brought to light by another publication, we consistently provide clear attribution and include links back to the original work whenever possible.

Our Professional Collaborations

In our professional interactions with dog owners, trainers, veterinarians, and related entities, we maintain a high standard of conduct.

Should communication with a company cease entirely, a situation sometimes referred to as ‘blacklisting,’ we remain dedicated to upholding our standards of reporting, fairness, analysis, and critique, uninfluenced by the circumstances.

Out of respect for individual dog owners, experts, and their pets, we refrain from discussing such occurrences publicly unless there is a compelling editorial reason to do so. This might include cases where the integrity of our publication is at stake or the release of crucial information, such as highly anticipated reviews, would be unduly delayed.

Advertising & Commercial Activities

At TheDogSpot, our editorial and advertising departments operate independently. Content featured on TheDogSpot website and our social channels, including our Pinterest account, is determined solely by our editorial team and is not influenced by commercial considerations.

Our advertising team adheres to principles of fairness, honesty, and transparency in all interactions with advertisers.

We do not accept advertising that automatically plays audio or includes offensive content. Additionally, inappropriate advertising content is not tolerated, and we take prompt action to remove it from the website. If you believe the advertisements on the site do not meet these criteria, please contact us.

Occasionally, we include links to retailers (e.g., Amazon) and may receive a commission from purchases made through these links. It’s important to note that these links do not impact our editorial decisions. They are featured in articles relevant to the product in question and are presented in neutral language, such as: “View the latest price of [this product] from Amazon.”


TheDogSpot is a part of Blum and Steffes NicheLink GbR, overseeing various brands and websites, including Reslisdence, Flawliz, and memorycreator.net.

These entities operate independently from TheDogSpot’s editorial department. We ensure transparency by disclosing our association when covering activities conducted by our parent company, NicheLink. Any such coverage is subject to the discretion of our editors and is never influenced by commercial considerations.

All NicheLink staff and collaborators are well-versed in and collectively uphold our editorial policy.
