How We Use Affiliate Programs
We hate annoying ads. Did you notice when you landed on Idle Pup that you weren’t bombarded with ads? Did you see how fast our pages load?! That’s because we refuse to give in to advertisements, and opt to be reader-supported instead.
Being reader-supported means we rely on the commissions earned by referring sales to pay for the maintenance of the site. When we mention a product, we’ll use a link that tells the merchant we sent you, and if you end up buying something, we earn a little fee. It never costs you anything extra.
Websites like this aren’t cheap to maintain, and affiliate programs are a way for us to keep the site running and full of interesting content while avoiding nasty intrusive ads.
Affiliate programs never influence our views or suggestions, we make decisions on what products to recommend based on real experiences and research. If we recommended rubbish, you’d stop trusting us, and we’d be worse off!
We’re current affiliate partners of the following websites:
- Amazon Affiliates – Idle Pup is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. This means we may promote and supply links to products on Amazon and earn a commission for any resulting sales made. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. This comes at no extra cost to you.
