Why we started Shop Vanillapup
Hello! We are Sarah and Lionel and we have a seven-year-old Westie named Latte. Despite having skin issues, she's our perfect pup! Without her, we wouldn't be doing what we do now.
Latte came from an unethical breeder. When we brought her home, she was timid, dirty, and had bad tear stains. She also has luxating patella.
As a first-time dog parent, we panicked a lot and turned to Google for answers. But we realised that a lot of the information on the Internet was not catered to people on this side of the world.
Hence, we started our blog, Vanillapup.com to share our personal learnings and experience as pet parents living in Singapore. Turns out, people from overseas were also looking for relatable content from a pet parent's perspective!
It's been six years and you can always count on us to sniff out the best pet-friendly hangouts, quality products, and credible health and wellness advice.
Over the years, our readers have been asking us questions like "What pet shampoo should I buy?", "What treats are safe for my dog?", and "What supplements does my dog need?".
Well, now you can get them from Shop Vanillapup. Everything you find at our online pet shop is what we think would help your pet lead a healthy and most importantly, happy life.
Our products are curated based on criteria that uphold our belief that our pets deserve products that are made of quality materials/ingredients and do not contain nasties.
Before we list each product, we would check the:
- ingredients list
- source of ingredients
- production country
- amount of processing (the less the better)
- existing product reviews
You won't find thousands of products on our website but you can trust that what you buy from us are handpicked with a discerning eye.
