So, what counts as the North East region? 

Well, if your catchment area is within the North East and your target market for clients is the North East than you are more than welcome to list your business. 

The map on our Facebook page gives a rough idea of what is considered ‘The North East’ Region. If you bear in mind that people will be searching our listings using their own postcode, we have fantastic scope in being able to accommodate the entire dog related service sector in the North East.

Please note, ‘Premium Listings’ are only available to businesses in the North East Region and businesses that list themselves as an ‘Online Service’ and therefore deliver to the North East.  If your business is not strictly within the North East then you are welcome to submit free or standard listings. 


What do you do for North East rescues and charities?

As a Rescue Centre/Charity you are able to house a Standard listing for free. No matter how big or how small your establishment is. Being listed on our site also means that you are eligible to receive funding from us during the year. The amount is not guaranteed, but we are working to be able to offer sponsorship and cash donations throughout the year to those listed with us. This money is generated from our Standard and Premium advertisers, so a big thankyou to them.

As a Rescue Centre/Charity you will also have access to our ‘Dogs needing homes’ page. This section is open to the public and will only feature dogs from Rescue Centre’s and Charities from around the region. The public will not be able to upload dogs to this section. As a registered rescue, you will be able to inform people about your rehoming and donation polices, and can also act as a contact point for anyone interested in giving a dog its forever home.


What does the total represent on your home page?

That figure shows the total amount of money that Standard and Premium advertisers have raised through listing on our site. It is what we give out throughout the year to help sponsor and fundraise events and activities.  This total does not represent the total amount available. So far:The North English Springer Spaniel Rescue- Easter Fun Weekend, Hare n Hound’s Agility League, Fun Dog Show in Consett, Rescue Aid For Animals.

Since our 1st Birthday in April 2013 we have decided to have one dedicated charity each year, this charity will receive all the money from the fundraising pot from that year's advertisers, so get spreading the word and get businesses advertising.  This year’s charity is SHAK – Safe Homes and Kindness. 


How does your review and testimonial system work?

We have now updated our review system. Our star rating no longer exists on any ratings. However all 'standard' and 'premium' listings now have reviews and testimonials. These are moderated by the business and not published publicly until reviewed by the business. If you are a business these options are available via your edit section. You can now encourage customers/clients to leave reviews for your business; the number of reviews the business has received is displayed under your title. Users must have an account to leave a review, as this enables us to keep an accurate record.

Events: We have revamped our events section, so make sure you utilize this page to add any events you are organizing or know of. Users can now view the event location on a map, as well as in date order. 

All of our sections now have full HTML content editing to make the site more user friendly.

Our ‘News/Articles’ section of the website is for all the weird and wonderful stories in the Dog World.
