A very happy new year wish from the VFDCB! One of my resolutions, obviously, will be to blog more often. Well, that and do dog nails every two weeks. Meanwhile, we have some very exciting news for you!
The VFDCB guide to breeders os now online! This is the replacement for the paper booklet that was sent to veterinarians. It is now available to the puppy-seeking public, along with an extensive article about how to buy a purebred dog.
For the first year, basic listings are free. That includes your name, kennel name, phone number, email address and town or county. It will be at the end of the general breed information and look like this.
Premium listings are $25 (half price) for the first year and include your name, phone number, email address, town or county, website address, social media links, a description of your breeding program or goals, and four photos. It will be a separate page linked to the general breed information. Here’s a sample.
As long as you are a member in good standing of your club (dues paid!) amd your club is a member in good standing of the Federation (dues paid and roster submitted) you’re eligible for the listings.
AT the end of this post is a link to an application for you to print and complete. You’ll need to have it signed by your club secretary to verify your membership and then either snail mail it or scan it and email it to Anne Taylor. Her contact info is on the application for premium listings. If ordering a premium listing, you can pay by check or with Paypal.
This is an incredible advertising opportunity and the more listings the guide gets, the better a resource it will be for people looking for puppies. Also check out the guide to buying a purebred dog on the site.
We hope you’ll support the VFDCB. This is the kind of thing the Federation is best at…something one club couldn’t do but all the clubs combined can!
