Editorial Policy


FurBallFun, spearheaded by the dynamic duo Corey and Kelly Turner, stands as a testament to the fusion of creativity and expertise in wildlife biology and project management. Born from a shared passion for animals, particularly pets, the founders envisioned a platform dedicated to enlightening pet owners on a myriad of pet-related aspects, placing a special emphasis on discovering the finest toys for their furry companions.

What began as a niche for dog toys has evolved into a holistic first-person journey across diverse pet-related subjects. Drawing from extensive experience in pet sitting, ownership, and continuous training, we adopt a friendly and informative tone to engage and educate our readers on everything from pet products to comprehensive pet care, fostering overall pet well-being.

In our commitment to transparency, we occasionally delve into topics beyond pets. While our primary focus remains on pets, we acknowledge that broader life-related discussions inevitably impact our relationships with our beloved animals. Explore more about our journey on our dedicated About page.
