The 2017 Planet Puppy hurricane season was an event in the annual cycle of tropical cyclone formation, in which tropical cyclones form on Planet Puppy. The season ran throughout 2017, though most tropical cyclones typically developed between June and December.

The first storm to form was Hurricane Andy which formed on January 22, 2017. The final storm to develop was Tropical Storm Ursa which dissipated on December 28, 2017.

The Planet Puppy hurricane basin is strikingly similar to the Atlantic Ocean basin on Planet Earth. The locations of the areas have names that are also similar to those on Earth.
