Editorial Guidelines


DoggieConnect was founded on the following guiding principles: 

  1. To create accurate animal- and nature-related content you can trust
  2. Spread knowledge about the topics we cover

Every day, we strive for accuracy through an editorial process that emphasizes primary research and keeping all information up-to-date and accurate.

Below, we’ve outlined more details on Doggie Connect’s guiding principles and the values that drive us.

1.) Accuracy

Every page of a DoggieConnect.com website begins with a solid foundation of research, fact-checking, and vetted sources to create content that is both current and accurate.

Every DoggieConnect.com page begins ONLY with vetted, encyclopedic resources. From there we layer on primary research and have developed an editorial process for reviewing content to ensure it is as up-to-date and accurate as possible. Our goal is that you can explore, enjoy, and trust the information discovered across DoggieConnect.com.

2.) Education

DoggieConnect.com seeks to both entertain and educate our readers. We understand the joy that comes with exploring a new topic or further understanding a familiar one. We strive to bring forward the most interesting aspects of the various topics we cover, and to do so, we use diverse sources – many of which are not available online – to deliver facts and research that are simply unavailable anywhere else.

3.) Zero-Tolerance for Plagiarism

DoggieConnect.com does not publish work that is plagiarized. We implement tools to ensure our content is completely original and authentic so that we can provide the most useful information to our readers.

4.) Corrections Policy

When errors are discovered, we swiftly correct them and update the content accordingly. We welcome reader feedback to cite any errors discovered so that we can quickly fact-check and correct them accordingly. If you discover what you suspect is an error, please contact us.

5.) Affiliate Disclosure

Some of the pages on DoggieConnect refer readers to products available for purchase on other websites, such as Amazon or Chewy. If affiliate links are included in our content, it will be clearly noted to the reader. In some cases, DoggieConnect.com earns a small commission for those purchases. While it does not raise the price of the product(s) for you, these commissions help support our sites and allow us to continue researching
