Now, you may also be wondering, who is the Puppy Tales community (and audience for your articles).
The Puppy Tales Community adore dogs and, if they are already pet parents they most definitely consider their dog/s to be a part of the family. They are:
- Mostly female (80%)
- Mostly living in Australia, the United States and the United Kingdom
- Wanting advice, tips, guidance and ideas for living the best lives with their dog
- Looking to ensure their dog/s live healthy and happy lives
Wanting experiences and activities that they can do with their dogs
What we’re looking for
Dogs are our passion. Your articles should be super helpful to the Puppy Tales Community and, generally, upbeat to make their day brighter. We love articles from/about:
- Dog / Pet professionals on caring for dogs, including vet care, grooming, training and that answer common questions or concerns about dogs
- Real life experiences of travelling or adventures with your dog and dog friendly places or venues
- Good relationships between dogs and people, including how dogs contribute to society and help humans.
We favour articles that are:
- Genuine, unique and of value to our dog loving community
- Comprehensive and in depth on a specific subject
- Super helpful! We look for high quality information or guidance, actionable help, practical tips, how-to’s or instructions in the articles we share.
- Quality ‘evergreen’ articles.
What we’re not looking for
- If it’s not about dogs, it’s not for us.
- One-off articles or guest posts.
- Articles that are a sale pitch, advertisement or promotion for a place, product or service.
- Content that’s already been published.
- Anything that’s been covered on our site before. Please do a search of our site before submitting your articles / article ideas.
- Anything that’s boring, been done before, overly general, plagiarised.
- Anything that is part of a backlinking / link building campaign.
- Anything that is offensive, inaccurate or outdated.
- Anything that’s overly critical of individuals, products, businesses, methods, treatments, etc – Puppy Tales is not a place to be negative or air grievances.
