About Us

Hi, I'm Claire and I founded Smart Bark following a career in retail buying and training. As a dog lover and owner I found there was a gap in the market for a quality British website dedicated to useful information about our four legged friends. After a lot of research, I finally took the plunge in 2019 and set up Smart Bark.

My co-founder is Freddie the Cockapoo and the inspiration behind Smart Bark. He's a cheeky chappie, loves all dogs, humans & squirrels. His hobbies include sleeping, lots of cuddles and exploring the wonderful world outside his garden.


Smart Bark is not just a website, it is a dog loving community supported by a number of dog lovers who (along with their pooches of course!) help to test and review many of the products we feature.

Whether it’s the latest dog products, in-depth food and supplement reviews for a healthy dog or advice for new puppy parents, we’re all about making it enjoyable and simple.


I hope you enjoy Smart Bark and find the original content, honest reviews and detailed research useful.

Please feel free to join in - simply add your comments to an article or follow us on Facebook and Instagram, I would love to hear from you.

You may have noticed the lack of ads and other clutter. Smart Bark is supported by readers and when you buy something we recommend, we may get a small affiliate commission but this never affects your price or what we pick.
