ACA Dog Show and Educational Seminar February 13th, 2016

The “Pet Industry” is now seeing major changes and shifting as new laws and regulations are being passed throughout the United States.  There are two directional trends in these legislative initiatives.  The first trend are laws placing severe “sourcing restrictions” on who and where Pet Stores are permitted to acquire their puppies and kittens from.  The second mandates USDA licensing and inspection for breeders and businesses using the Internet to sell their pets.


Because many cities have already placed limits on the amount of pets a household may have, consumers are finding it more and more difficult to acquire locally bred puppies.  The public is now turning to the Internet.  Breeders are seeing their Internet sales of puppies growing at an unprecedented rate and puppy prices are going up as well.  Breeders have found 2015 their most profitable year and 2016 is already trending to be even better! 


Because the consumers want to buy their puppy from a “good” breeder, they are now Goggling and researching the breeder’s your name on the Internet.  Do you have any negative postings on the Internet?  Have the Animal Activists targeted you or someone with a name similar to you with negative and “puppy mill” postings?


The American Canine Association (ACA) fully understands how important it is to protect and insure positive and truthful postings.  We also know how important it is to rank high in your customer’s Search Engine results.  ACA’s Star Breeder Programs are designed specifically for that!  ACA’s Integrated Technologies (IT) Department posts your ACA Star Breeder webpage on the Internet, it normally ranks in the top 10 Search Results of Goggle, Yahoo, and Bing within 5 days.
