Meet the Dogs Blogging Their Way to a New Life

Meet the Dogs Blogging Their Way to a New Life










(PRWEB) May 12, 2008

Tragically, thousands of dogs are abandoned every year. It is estimated that there could be as many as a 100,000 dogs seeking new homes in UK rescue shelters right now.

The people behind the DogsBlog.com website, specialist pet publishing company K9 Media Ltd, are keen to expand on the early success of the service, which is totally free to use for dog seekers and charities, and are in talks to take the concept worldwide.

Ryan O’Meara, editor in chief at K9 Magazine, came up with the concept for DogsBlog concept in the late 1990’s after watching popular animal rescue TV shows.

“I used to be fascinated with shows such as Pet Rescue where they would have a special appeal for a dog who had been looking for a home for years. At the end of each episode they would profile the dog and then the next day they would always ask people to stop calling because they’d had thousands of enquiries. This really amazed me because I always used to think, if there are thousands of people who wanted this dog, where were they for the past years whilst he’s been looking for a new home?”

A virtual window into the world of shelter dogs

“It dawned on me that it wasn’t the fault of the people who wanted to adopt a dog, it was simply a case that there was no way of just being able to quickly see all the different dogs looking for new homes unless you physically started to visit all the rescue centres one by one.

I was passionate that a service where all the dogs could be showcased in one location would be well received. I also knew that for every single person thinking about getting a dog, somewhere in a rescue centre would be that person’s perfect pet. It just so happened that in 2007 and the popularity of blogging, we were finally able to join up all the loose ends. Thankfully it’s worked superbly for all concerned.”

The Blue Cross, one of the charities involved with DogsBlog, is only too clear on the positive impact of the website: “The more people who see these dogs then the better chance they have of finding a home with a loving family. Prospective dog owners spend time looking at the site and can fall in love with the dog of their dreams”

Dog lovers agree.

Celebrity home improvement expert Linda Barker said of DogsBlog.com

“It really helps the new owner decide on the right dog for their circumstances in the comfort of their own home. This is how dog ownership should always start, what a fabulous service for the animal loving public who are wanting to adopt!”

A new feature for the site and one set to grow larger in 2008 is the addition of YouTube hosted videos of dogs looking for new owners.

DogsBlog co-founder Kim Bruce believes this extra innovation can get even more dogs into new homes:

“We launched DogsBlog.com to try and utilise the popularity of blog style websites, their ease of use and the user friendly way in which they allow information to presented and searched. It seemed a logical next step to add to this the popularity of videos and as it is now so simple to capture a short piece of video footage and broadcast it to a worldwide audience, we decided to experiment with a few small videos of dogs in shelters. The response was incredible with new homes being found literally within a day or two. Next year we will certainly be expanding this service.”

It is the first website of its kind to unite so many dog welfare charities all under the same roof at the same time, which enables users to simply find the dog of their dreams without worrying about having to go from charity to charity.

Users can search for dogs by age, breed type, geographic location or even by a range of character traits such as dogs that are good with children, dogs who like cats or dogs who would be suitable to perform jobs of work.

As the site moves forward the aim is to assist more dog owners who are having troubles with their pets and are considering the possibility of rehoming them. DogsBlog.com has partnered with D.A.P (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) with the aim of offering support, advice and a solution for owners who are struggling with their dog’s behaviour. The partnership with D.A.P is also good news for those people who adopt a dog from a rehoming shelter as they can greatly assist dogs during the often stressful initial settling in period as the synthetic copy of the canine appeasing pheromone is clinically proven to comfort and reassure puppies and adult dogs alike to help them adapt to a new home.

DogsBlog.com, a shining example of modern methods and modern dog expertise helping to fight the age old problem helping homeless dogs find new, loving owners.

DogsBlog.com Quotes:

Trude Mostue, celebrity vet:

“Dogsblog.com is a fantastic example of the entire pet industry coming together for the common good.

Ryan O’Meara, editor-in-chief K9 Magazine:

“DogsBlog will not only raise awareness of the thousands of dogs in the UK’s rescue homes, but also provide the perfect match-making service between people who long to share their homes with a dog that needs some well deserved TLC.”

Victoria Stilwell, Dog Behaviourist & TV Personality

“Dogsblog.com is an easy and effective way to find the perfect rescue dog. Those who are interested in a dog of a particular age, sex or breed can easily find what they are looking for on the site and because it casts the net wider that just the local area, more dogs have a chance of being adopted. The site provides shelters another valuable way in getting their dogs re-homed with the right kind of families. It’s an excellent idea and I wish it every success.”

Claire King, Actress

“A good idea, the more dogs who can be united with the right families for them, the better. I think the best thing about owning a dog is the fact that it makes you a more responsible person because you have someone else to look after who can’t look after themselves and you are responsible for their welfare.”

Former Crufts presenter and celebrity dog lover Philippa Forrester

“As a dog lover and someone who has re-homed dogs in the past, I think Dogsblog.com is a fantastic initiative. It will allow more dogs to find new homes and be united with loving owners, which can only be a good thing.”

The ads that show up on your blog will be targeted towards the topic of your blog, which means if you have a blog about dogs, the ads that show up on your blog will deal with pets. It’s like Google is paying you to advertise on your blog.

Another way to make money with your blog is with affiliate programs.  Companies will pay you good money to  advertise their products, and all you have to do is put a link or banner on your blog leading to that companies web site. Once a sale is made the company gives you a commission. That is the reason you should pick one topic for your blog.  If you want to have a blog about your life, by all means do it, but have other blogs about specific topics if you want to make money.  

Once you find a topic that interest you, look for affiliate programs for that particular topic.  With the dog blog example, there are several dog training products that you can have links and banners to on a dog blog that will make good money.

Obviously you want to pick something that fits the topic of your blog, but don’t limit yourself to just one, you can change a product you are promoting with a few clicks.  

The internet is the essence of marketing, by that I mean, every word in an ad matters, every color, where the ad is located on your blog, whether is is blinking or not, and the color of the text.  It might not seem like all of those things matter, but the fact is, everything that you decide matters.  The good thing is you can experiment with how your blog looks as much as you want.  There are several e-books written on how you should place and where you should place them, in the beginning, just go with the basic blog set-up until you get the hang of things.

Dogging & Blogging go hand in hand

Dogging & Blogging go hand in hand

Dogging & Blogging these days they go hand in hand why? well its long been known that doggers struggle to find good dogging locations and this has been the case down to over use of present ones and unfortunately unlike others types of meeting places once too many people start to find out that doggers meet you also get the idiots turn up and ruin things

what started life as a good private meeting place for horny couples into a playground for idiots and people that think they can turn up and steam into sex with couples with no consideration of what they may well want 

Everyone knows Its common knowledge that British adults or at least adults in the UK indulge in dogging more than any other worldwide adults in fact all you need do is looking at some of the best dogging DVDs going around ad the common theme you will find is that all the best ones come from UK !!

why,because we dog more than anyone else and lets be honest when it comes to horny girls the British always win hands down !!!

But why has UK dogging & blogging taken off so well, well the reason is simple UK couples that dog like to tell others and unless you are part of a large group of friends all with similar interest this is going to be hard to do, so the next thing you have to find is an outlet where you can let the world know about your best dogging locations, or the couples and indeed single males you’ve meet up with and where better than the good old old world wide web and the blogging websites offer that opportunity

Although you still want to make sure this is kept just a select groups and this is where swingers website with private members only blogging sections can be used to the best effect not only offering couples the chance to post locations, but also photos details of meets and even if the police are patrolling a location, after all knowing its only members that can view does means its pretty secure

The problem is those adult that don’t like using the internet ( although these are few between now ) have in the past used word of month to find dogging information and its this word of month that has in the past caused so many problems.

After all how many times has information been passed around that information getting more and more twisted with each tail!!! and this type of information really rapidly becomes more hit than miss and quite often the information about the dogging spot is outdated and probably never used

With online dogging information and more so blogs sites this constantly updated information can’t happen as the members will post the information almost as soon as they hear about it adding new dogging spots and maybe even problems after all its does benefit the dogging community if we keep only updated and current information.

So if your looking to find doggers don’t just leave to to chance join a swingers website that offers a private blog and start telling others

Tigger was been a webmaster & swinger for some years, so entering into swingers websites was an easy disicion and soon partnered with the largest swinging members website online that has a dedicated swingers blogs featuring swingers stories and information.
