As a breeder, most likely your chief concern is to find an ideal home for your puppy. But we’re with you and want to provide you with the best support throughout the entire process. We know about the amount of energy required to raise a litter and understand if the last thing on your mind is tinkering with ads. We want to help! Read these short tips below, and if you use them, you can too successfully advertise your puppy with very little effort.
Take the opportunity and show the world that you know your puppies best. When posting your ad, you can rise above the crowd by describing your dogs. Every puppy has a unique personality in the litter, giving you the opportunity to present each of them as individuals. They can be playful, bossy, shy or docile, so emphasize their traits and make suggestions for their ideal destinations (hobby, sport, show, etc.).
Before the puppy changes its home, discuss the details with the future owner. Optimally, before D-day send them a list of suggestions of the items they should get (equipment, food, brush, etc.) for starting out. Prepare for the transfer by getting all the documents together that were listed in your ad. If you’re taking advantage of the benefits of Wuuff Pay, we email you the buyer’s information, so you can prepare an invoice and sales agreement.
We strongly advise you to write an agreement to protect yourself and the future owner. A simple written agreement can prove without a doubt that the puppy has changed hands. If you need a template, you may use this online form or access one from your local kennel club’s database.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Prepare high-quality, aesthetically pleasing pictures of the pups. Pay attention to the background too because random items can ruin the overall image. Shoot a picture of each puppy individually to help the searchers recognize them. Puppies change from week-to-week, so you should upload new pictures that often too. This also helps the people interested in your dogs while following their progress, and your listing will move to the top too. It probably makes sense to upload newer pictures of the parents as well because there can be quite a difference, for example, between two- and four-year-old dogs, especially among larger breeds.
Provide the most information about the puppies’ parents. A large percentage of visitors are interested in the puppies’ lineage and if they don’t see any pictures of the parents, they most likely leave disappointed. Be proud of your breeding pairs and announce their achievements since it’s the fruit of your hard labor too. Dog show results, health screenings and descriptions are essential to introduce the parents. If you post an entire litter, entering the parents’ information once is enough; the system will save the data for the other siblings too. And if any of the parents breed again in the future, just enter their names and the saved info will automatically pop up too.
Make yourself accessible. Provide a phone number that you (or someone) can answer during the day and on the weekends. Check your emails at least once a day. Quick and responsive communication can help your puppy find a loving home in short time.
After using Wuuff Pay, you’ll have a chance to collect positive feedback. When your puppy is already in its new home, we give an option for the new owner to share their experience with you on the entire internet. The more positive reviews people read about you, the easier it will be for future dog owners to choose you. Accept Wuuff Pay and enjoy the benefit of positive reviews.
Gain advantage and use our advance payment solution. We can provide a safe, accountable and convenient way to get paid online. This way the future owner can enjoy the benefits of Wuuff Guarantee, and you can be sure that the deposit or full payment for the puppy will get to you without any hitch. More details here.
Use the opportunity to share your Wuuff ad to a wider audience on Facebook, so more people will learn about your puppy’s search for a new owner.
