Online Pet Communities

Since the pet industry has exploded, online pet community websites are on the rise. As many of you know, I have my own page on Dogster. It's a great forum to get to discuss everything dog: health, sports, shopping. Upload your favourite photos and videos, give other dogs cute stars and rosettes to show you care. They are also very informative providing a daily blog on hot dog topics.

Another great site to check out is PetPop. On PetPop you can build your own community and keep your pet friends all in one place. Meet new pets in your area and check out other breeds like you from all around. See who has a top rated profile, look through top rated photos and videos. The cool thing about the PetPop pages is that other pets from the website can leave great comments (including photos and clip art) on the pets leave a cute message or tell them that they like their page. The pets human can also have a section on the site to post some brief info about themselves too.

The team that has created PetPop are all pet lovers and that’s the main reason why it was created. The site is for pet lovers by pet lovers. You can't be mad at that!

Pawspot is also trying to give Dogster a run for its dog cookies. It's set up as an online community for pets and people. The pet pages aren't as detailed, but the search is great as it allows you to find pets in your area, for potential meet-up situations. They have great forum discussion threads set up with a variety of topics, and nice gallery with photo contests to check out the great pets.

So if you don't already have a site out there for your pup, what are you waiting for??
