Ethical brand ratings and accreditation since 2001


How ethical is Yappily?

Yappily, an online dog care directory, is one of The Good Shopping Guide’s leading Ethical Accreditation members and is featured on our list of the Top 200 Ethical Businesses.

Yappily’s directory revolutionises UK’s dog care by connecting dog guardians with ethical & accredited services.  In an industry lacking regulation, Yappily stands out, ensuring providers meet stringent qualifications and adhere to a ‘do no harm’ ethic.

The company’s ethical achievements are truly commendable. We therefore encourage other brands within the pet care industry to follow Yappily’s example and adopt more ethical policies and practices.

What makes Yappily so sustainable?

What sets Yappily apart is its clear dedication to ethics and sustainability. Businesses that appear in the Yappily directory must be environmentally friendly, hold strong ethical values and contribute positively to the wellbeing of pets, people and the planet.

Yappily’s core values are centred around dog welfare, the primary mission behind the brand. Yappily therefore only allows ethical, qualified and licensed care providers to appear on its directory. Additionally, all dog professionals must be qualified and only use force free methods.

The Yappily Code of Ethics sets out its standards for directory members. This includes expectations such as robust animal welfare practices, treating people with respect, professionalism and transparency. Yappily is therefore committed to ensuring that all services on its website conform to the highest ethical standards.

Committed to sustainability, Yappily is reducing its carbon footprint through digital practices, energy efficiency, and encouraging eco-friendly products like biodegradable bags and natural grooming products.

The brand’s sustainable journey includes championing fair labour practices, demonstrating our dedication to a healthier planet and pet wellbeing. Yappily is not just a directory; it’s a movement towards responsible, compassionate pet care and environmental stewardship.
