Disclosure and Disclaimer

Taking care of a dog is EXPENSIVE! That’s why I started this blog: I want to share the tips, tricks, and deals I find during my own attempts to save money on Henry’s care. That being said, I also use this blog to provide for Henry and offset some costs (such as hosting and domain registration). Here’s how:


1.) Amazon Associates and Share a Sale

Rochelle BaRoss/The Broke Dog is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com or through my store. If you click on one of my Amazon links and purchase something, I’ll earn a small percentage. I’ll only refer you to products that I believe in! I am also a member of other affiliate programs (namely, Share a Sale), and may earn affiliate commissions through certain links if you make a purchase. I always disclose this — it’s the law, and it’s also only fair to you! I am not here to mislead you in any way, just to share my thoughts and opinions.


2.) BarkBox

If you sign up with Henry’s code, we’ll each get a free box added to our plans. Everyone wins! I do want to be open and honest with my readers, so I am explicitly stating it here. (If you’re interested – the code is HENRYTHENUGGET). Henry loves his BarkBoxes!


3.) Figo Pet Insurance

Henry uses Figo Pet Insurance. When I refer someone (by clicking a link on my site) and they purchase their own plan, I earn a little money and the referred individual gets a lifelong discount (which will ultimately add up to more than my referral reward). Again – everyone wins! Especially you!
4.) Product Reviews

I review products that I purchase for Henry as well as products that companies give me for free. If I mention that a company sent a product to me, assume that it was given to me as a gift or in exchange for a review. I also try to specify if I purchase an item in order to clear up confusion. I review products so that you can make informed purchasing decisions. If you’re going to spend your hard-earned money, why spend it on something you may not like?


5.) Sponsored Post

If a post is sponsored, I will clearly state it in the disclaimer at the start of the post. That being said, all opinions in the post are my own and do not reflect the company’s views or my employer’s views. In addition, my posts or reviews, even if I am compensated for them, are based on my personal experience with the brand and/or service and may not reflect your experience.


6.) Small Business Spotlight

All responses to interview questions are the words and opinions of the company or individual being interviewed. I love supporting small businesses and am not paid or compensated for highlighting a specific business unless specified in the beginning of the post.


7.) Ads

Yes, you may see a few ads on this site. I would prefer to avoid anything unsightly, but I do need to pay for this site’s web hosting as well as Henry’s care. Please feel free to contact me at rochelle[at]thebrokedog[dot]com if you have any questions or concerns.


8.) Emails

Your email address is collected when you choose to subscribe to The Broke Dog by email. I will absolutely not sell or distribute any information you give me. That would NOT be cool. It’ll only be used to share great information with you, directly from this site!



I am not an expert! Please take anything I post on this blog with a grain of salt, as it is based on my personal experience and opinions. If you have any questions or concerns, consult a qualified trainer, vet, or specialist. Everything posted on this blog is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of my employer, friends, or dog (it’s only what I THINK his opinion is). It does not reflect any sponsor’s or partner’s opinions, and there maybe an error from time to time that I will always try to correct. I’m just like you — a dog owner on a mission — and I am certainly only human.


If you have any questions about the above, please contact me at rochelle[at]thebrokedog[dot]com and I’ll be happy to discuss!
