About The Idle Pup

Hello there, friend! The Idle Pup is a growing blog all about dogs and advice on keeping them. Our team of part-time editors and writers are looking forward to bringing you exciting new content as regularly as we can. Between us, we’ve a vast history of owning dogs of all breeds; we know what you’re up against!

We work with designers and veterinarians to help us craft a blog that is beautiful to look at, informative, and fun to read. We pride ourselves on sharing our life experiences, but we’ll never put our opinion over science. It’s our job to make sure each and every article you read is well-researched, accurate, and helpful!

Our love for animals knows no bounds. We had so much fun creating The Idle Cat to help bring news and guides to our cat lovers’ Instagram community; we decided to create The Idle Pup for dog lovers too. Our blog covers everything from fun posts and naming ideas to health tips and guidance, and we’ve featured on a few “best dog blogs” lists already, including this one from Ranked Blogs.

Every member who works to build the blog into something beautiful does so with dogs’ best interests at heart.

With that said, we are not veterinarians. Our tips on health and recommendations should not be used in place of professional advice. We’re careful to mention that each time we approach the subject!

With more fresh content in the pipeline and a vision for creating a community in the future, everyone in charge is super excited to get the show on the road.

Who’s Behind The Idle Pup

Keeping a website up to date and full of fresh new content is no easy task. Our Editorial Team consists of a small group of volunteers who make sure each and every article you read is accurate, informative and original. They do their very best to ensure every article leaves you more informed on how best to care for your dog. Along with them, here are the people who contribute to our blog.
