All this week has been Puppy Awareness Week here in the UK. And to celebrate there has been loads of things going on, the most important is the new guidelines the Pet Advertising Advisory Group has set in place for puppy and dog advertising online.
The new guidelines include:
No pet is to advertised for a swap
No pregnant pet sales
Websites can ban vendors on a three strikes you’re out policy
And the way to find these bad vendors?
Keywords, when an advert is posted the website will look for key words such as banned and remove the post automatically.
Vendors will also not be able to set puppies underage.
This is a huge step forwarding in tackling puppy mills, however there is more that can be done. But since I am a glass half full kinda gal I want to continue the positive vibe with this story. Finally, people are taking the steps needed to ensure pet welfare is top priority when selling. Fingers crossed for the future.
We now have Instagram! I’m still figuring out how to work it because I don’t have the proper app due to my phone. But please follow us and we will update as much as we can. Find us here.
I have finally found my camera charger. Recently, I have been taking all my pictures on my phone because I couldn’t find me camera charger, which was super annoying. But it has been found! Yay, better and more pictures for all! Yippeeeee.
This is part of the This’n’That Thursday Blog Hop, where you have a little bit of this and a little big of that, but not much in the way of a proper post.
