Dog Product Reviews

Updated June 2014



Lilly died December 17, 2013, after a 23-month fight for her life.
We are currently looking at the future of the blog.
Until then, we are not accepting any products for review. 


In addition, please note: As of June 2014, we established a policy about requests and pitches about crowd-funding for dog products or services. It is as follows … We DO NOT accept crowd-funding pitches at all. Lately, that’s at least 95% of the email requests we get. Everyone it seems wants help raising money for their pet-related enterprise. It has become cumbersome to reply to each request.


Because Champion of My Heart is primarily a real-time memoir, we don’t just post to post. We prefer posts, including dog product reviews and dog toy reviews, relate in some way to our real (somewhat rural) life and lifestyle in the Colorado Rocky Mountains … or to the lives or experiences of other people with other fearful dogs … or to people who are struggling with very ill dogs with a variety of issues.

For ethical reasons, as a working journalist, I do NOT accept payment for dog product reviews or posts.

We place our readers in the 20% if not top 2% of dog owners in the U.S., meaning they already know a LOT about:

  • Dogs
  • Dog care
  • Dog health
  • Dog training and behavior

Champion of My Heart Dog Product and Dog Toy Reviews

We love dog toys, especially treat dispensers and food puzzles. We’re happy to review them, often with videos.

We will be honest about what we like and what we don’t about dog products and dog toys. Our readers expect our real opinions, and that’s what we give them.

Champion of My Heart Dog Treats and Dog Food Reviews

Because of medical concerns, we’re VERY hesitant to do product trials of actual dog foods. Treats, yes. Actual meals, no.

Champion of My Heart Dog Product Giveaways

Often when we post a dog product review or dog toy review, companies provide us with one or more products to give away to readers. Sometimes the company drop ships the products for us. Other times, we ship them ourselves.
