Comments

Comments are adored! Puppy Tales, however, is not responsible for content in the comments and reserves the right to edit or delete any comments submitted on the site or the Puppy Tales social media sites without notice where the comments represent attacks or threats on an individual or towards a group, are spam or questionable spam, contain offensive language or concept, include profanity or are considered not to be in the interests of the dog loving community.

Affiliate links, Sponsorship and Paid Advertising

We believe in full disclosure and transparency. Puppy Tales may collaborate, advertise and accept branded or sponsored content on the site. Occasionally products or services may be included on the site that were given to Puppy Tales free of charge, from which a commission may be received if you make a purchase and that sponsorship and advertising is offered. Where possible we will endeavour to make affiliate and sponsorship links known.

That said, we want for you to know that Puppy Tales has the highest standards.  We only recommend and include brands, products and services that we have used ourselves, think are great and meet our high standards. With a few exceptions (generally because they would not be of use) the products we receive free of charge are donated to pet rescues or other animal related not-for-profits.

Products, Reviews & Freebies

Puppy Tales loves to try new dog related products, services and experiences and to share those we think are great with our dog loving community.  From pet friendly accommodation to delicious new treats. Newly launched ranges and unique handmade products. If you’ve got something you think our community would love to know about, then be sure to get in contact with us to discuss the possibility of it being included on the site.

As appropriate, we accept products free of charge so that we may consider it for our community.  In doing so, do not guarantee inclusion on the Puppy Tales website or it’s social media channels. If we love what you’re offering and if we think our fellow dog lovers will as well, we’re happy to discuss our collaborative options to send some love your way. If, however, we think a product, service or experience is only so-so (or worse) we generally opt for saying nothing than say something negative.

If you participate in any Promotions, please review the applicable terms and conditions as well as our Privacy Policy.
