Puppy Leaks is where dog owners can find simple tips & advice on how to live a happier, healthier life with our dogs.
Puppy Leaks Started With Laika
In 2011 a little mutt named Laika came into my life. And she was unlike any dog I’d ever had before; she was a resource guarder, she lacked confidence, and she had some major issues with reactivity.
I can happily report that Laika no longer resource guards, her confidence is at an all time high, and she’s much less reactive.
To many of us dogs are more than just “a dog;” they’re our loyal companions and beloved members of the family. I believe Dogs truly are a mans best friend, and this blog is just my little way of showing my appreciation.

I Love Answering Your Questions
One of my favorite features of this blog is getting a chance to answer your questions. We’ve covered everything from why dog feet smell like Fritos to why dogs get premature greying. If you any any specific questions about your dog feel free to e-mail them to me. I’ll be glad to answer them, and they might even make it onto the blog.
About Jen Gabbard
I studied criminal justice in college, but quickly realized it wasn’t right for me. After coming to the conclusion that I wasn’t cut out for that line of work I fell back on two of my lifelong passions — dogs & writing. I started Puppy Leaks as a passion project, and after a couple of years I was able to make it my full time job. (If you’re looking to start a blog I put together a guide on how I got started)
I’ve lived with dogs my entire life, and this is the place where I share all the tips & tricks I’ve learned over the years.
I’m a blogger living in the metro Detroit area with my lovely Shepherd mix Laika. I love sneakers, coffee, exploring the wilderness, and watching all sorts of silly horror movies. The cheesier the better. Have you seen Squirm? It’s excellent.
