Our thoughts on pupfluencing

Who doesn’t want a daily dose of cute dogs on their social media feed? If you’re feeling low or just need a smile, adorable pups are definitely going to cheer you up! While we love all things dogs, we must also share the importance of why sharing accurate information on these social accounts is vital.

Many pupfluencing accounts promote items such as dog food, dog toys and supplements which are not healthy for the animals or advise on areas of dog health in which they are not qualified or experienced. It’s important for these popular accounts to share accurate and honest information with their followers and anyone visiting their page for advice.

Ultimately, petfluencers are a huge market and dogs and their owners make a small fortune by posting their feel-good content across social media. Our team of experts urge owners to be responsible with their posting and fact-check the content they’re putting out to their audience.
