    • Classifieds - select the type of ad you are looking for (i.e. dogs/puppies for sale; cats, stud service). Then search for the breed you are advertising. Scan the results, locate your ad and click on the breed name or picture.

  2. From the BreedersClub.net home page, in the left hand column, under the heading Free Pet Search, click on the red classified ads link next to the dog or cat, depending on what you are searching for. You will be presented with the BreedersClub.net classifieds search page. Click on the category you want. Enter in the breed you want, the State where you live and click on Search. You will be presented with a page of miniature ads, one of which will be yours. Click on Details to see the full page ads. (back to top)

When I try to post additional ads, why am I being asked to pay again?
Though it appears you are being asked to pay, you are not required to do so if you are an Advantage Member. Note especially steps 9 and 10 in the instructions for How to Place New Listings on the page linked in the question above. (back to top)

In the images box, click the drop down arrow and then click on the image you you wish to add text to. To the right of the images box, click on the Text button. A new window will open, enter the text in the text box, then save it.

When I tried to post my or update my ad, I received a message " page can not be displayed." What happened?
This can occur when you try to upload too many pictures at once or your images are too large. Try submitting or modifying the text of your ad, then updating it. Once you have the text the way you want, add one picture at a time, updating after each picture. Pictures taken directly from a digital camera are often too large. Resize them so that they take up less memory.(back to top)

What is the best size for my pictures?
Although the classifieds program will accept very large pictures, up to 900 kb, it is best to resize them prior to attempting to upload them. The optimal resolution for posting images on the web is 72 ppi or pixels per inch. The height and width should not be greater than about 3 inches for optimal loading time. (back to top)

How can I resize my pictures?
You need to use a photo editing program. Such programs usually come with scanners and digital cameras. You can usually set the resolution to 72 ppi by checking under attributes or size. Try cropping off any extra picture around your puppy. There is a usually a crop tool that you can use which allows you select part of your picture and then remove everything from the outside of your selected box. If in doubt about the size of you picture, right click on it and then click on properties. If it is more than 900 kb it is probably too large.(back to top)

How do I know if people are visiting my ads?
