How to Market and Advertise Puppies

Puppies are very frequently in demand as pets. Many people prefer their dog as a puppy rather than several years old. Litters of puppies are generally easy to market to either find the puppies a good home or to sell them as a breeder for profit in California. Online marketing and advertising and photos are a quick way to get the dogs seen by a large number of people, but care must be taken to ensure that only good homes end up adopting the animals.

If you are advertising puppies for sale, here are some tips to help you out.

Instructions

  • Get the puppies vaccinated and keep them well fed to maintain their health while you search for homes for them. Keep vaccination records so they can show potential buyers and provide them to whoever takes the puppy out of the house.
  • Take close-up photos of each puppy. The puppy’s entire body should be visible in the photo so it’s obvious he’s not trying to hide anything.
  • Type above an ad for the puppies stating their breed, age, gender, and vaccination information. They include a price for each puppy. Always ask for at least $50 to help weed out people who just take the puppies and abuse or sell them. The adoption fee helps bring in more selective buyers who are more likely to have the puppy’s best interests at heart. Place a header at the top of the ad that says “puppies.”
  • Place photos of each puppy in the ad.
  • Post your ad in online classifieds, local pet shelter sites that allow listings, and other local sites, such as a veterinarian’s office or pet store. Include a phone number or email address so you can be reached by potential buyers.
  • Interview each prospective buyer who interacts with the puppy to see how the puppy reacts to you and to verify the buyer could provide a good home for the puppy.

Tips and Warnings

  • A contract of sale may give you the ability to claim the puppy if you feel it is being mistreated. Consult an attorney to properly write one.
  • Ask for references from potential puppy buyers to rule out more unsuitable buyers.

If you already have a website advertising, puppies for sale can be much easier. But with a proper marketing campaign, it can be less stressful. A good pet breeder marketing agency can help you with that such as Vega Marketing Solutions. They are reputable, have a grade A with the Better Business Bureau, and have been in business since 2014!

What attracts Termites?

None of us like insects to roam freely in our home, in the case of termites, they are much more than annoying, they are destructive and can damage your home and furniture, which will surely trigger more repair costs. But what attracts them? The truth is that a termite infestation does not occur simply by chance. There are specific conditions that make your home the right place for these insects.

Lots of Wood

It may seem obvious, that termites love wood of all kinds. What is not so obvious is that within their menu they include the pile of firewood that you may have in your yard, the tree stump in the garden, and even any live tree that is infested near your house. If you support the wood piles on the walls of the house you are providing an access point for termites to enter.

Decaying wood is a breeding ground for termite colonies. Live trees that come in contact with the outside of your house just provide another avenue for them to do damage, they often contain moisture, which is another thing termites need. For these reasons, you should keep all heating wood or pruning debris at a safe distance.

Poor Drainage

No one likes cleaning gutters and gutters, but putting off these tasks indefinitely can cause a lot more headaches than doing it. Clogged gutters can overflow, which can cause water to pool around your home. Again, moisture attracts termites, so you’re actually creating an otherwise avoidable hazard. Humidity is a very important factor in the development of a termite colony.

Warm and Dark Areas

Termites thrive when undetected. Spaces like basements or damp attics are among their favorite places to live. These quiet spaces are the perfect environment for them to develop as a complex colony, and as a result, they cause serious damage to wooden objects in your home (furniture, doors and their frames, windows, columns, beams, etc.).

That is why it is important to keep these spaces dry and fresh. You can inspect them for sources of moisture and make repairs when necessary. Dehumidifiers can also be of great help.

Why are my fish dying?

It is typical to go to any pet store that specialized in aquariums and without having much knowledge of the subject you buy your first aquarium, usually, a kit (which includes an internal filter, food, light, and thermometer), buy sand or gravel of doubtful quality and surely painted, and four floors, usually plastic.

The same day you buy several fish, you go home very excited, you assemble everything and add the fish. From here your problems begin. For a week or 10 days, you have all the dead fish and you don’t know why.

Do you feel identified? It has happened to me and I am sure that 90% of people who start in this exciting hobby have experienced this or a similar situation. Don’t worry, you’re here and I’m going to help you.

1. Tropical Fish in Cold Water Or Cold Water Fish In Hot Water.

The temperature of the aquarium water is another very important factor in the life of our fish.

This mistake is made when fish that live in cold water is mixed with fish that live in tropical waters in the same aquarium.

As I have mentioned before, a search of chips will clarify 100% of the doubts about compatibility.

2. Buy Fish without Knowing Their Basic Needs

This error is focused beyond pH or temperature values.

What I mean is, that you may have controlled the pH, hardness, and temperature, but do you know if the species of fish you have lived well in your aquarium?

Depending on the original geographical area of ​​each species, the aquarium will be one way or another. For example, there are fish that live in dark waters with many leaves on the bottom and almost no plants, others on the contrary since they live in clear waters and countless plants that they use as a hiding place.

It is very important to know the minimum number of liters they need to live.
The fish that we find in stores are usually small and you have to know what size they will reach as adults to know if the aquarium is suitable or not for that species.

For example, the typical fish badly called “bottom cleaners”, the pleco, is very small when it is in the store and many uninformed people buy it, but do you know what the problem is? It can measure up to 60 cm.

3. Overfeed the Fish

A task as simple as feeding the fish becomes a headache for many aquarists.
When do I have to feed the fish?
How much food should I put in the aquarium? 

The result is that many end up overfeeding their fish.

You have to know what kind of fish you have in the aquarium. We could classify fish into two types, those that eat during the day and those that eat at night.
If you keep diurnal species you should feed them when the aquarium lights are on.
If, on the other hand, you keep nocturnal species, you should feed the fish when the aquarium lights are off.

There is a fairly widespread rule that says: you have to give the amount of food that the fish are able to eat in two or three minutes at the most and siphon away the excess food.

The best method to feed the fish correctly is to give small amounts, but several times a day, ensuring that all the fish eat.

In any case, everyone has their aquarium and as you gain experience, you yourself will realize how and how often to feed your fish.
