About Dogpages.net

Dogpages.net is operated by PakRats Inc. PakRats Inc. is a professional Website Development firm located in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. We have been designing Websites for our customers since 1995.  

In 1998, we created dogpages.net. Dogpages.net is a National Directory for Breeders, and businesses relating to the dog industry.

Free Listing:

A free listing is simply a link from our Breeder Directory to your existing Website. You must have a Website to be listed in our directory.  Just complete our Free Listing Form.  For breeders, we will just list your Business name and state.  Don't have a site yet?  We can design you a site for as little as $29/yr. (see below).   

Brief Listing:

A full 1-page, 2-photo listing containing a 500 word description of your business. You get links to your present email address and/or existing website if you have one.  You will be listed near the top of the page in your dogpages.net category directory, and your type will be bold-faced in the directory.  This listing costs $29/yr.  Extra photos can be added to this page for a cost of $10/yr.  You also get a hit counter, one free text change per month, and registration with 20 major search engines.  View an example of a brief listing.  Your site will be named:

Your website address will be: www.dogpages.net/your-name.

Standard Listing:

Ample room to show-off. You get a full 4-page Website that includes seven photographs. Your 4 pages include:

A "Home" Page – Here you get to show one photograph. You can also include the logo of your business if you have one. Any text you want on this page.

An "About Us" Page – Here is where you get to tell everyone about yourself, and what makes you special. You can discuss anything you want in this section. You write it, we’ll post it. You can also post 2 photographs on this page.

Either a "Breed Information" Page, or a "Puppy Information" Page, or a "We Offer" Page.    Here you can discuss any details on your business, as well as display 3 more photographs.

A "Contact Us" Page – Here is where you can list: name; address; phone numbers; etc. If you have e-mail, we will provide you with a link directly to your e-mail address. We will also show one more photo of your choice on this page.

We will also provide the following services for each individual Standard Listing:

  • A counter for your Website, to keep track of visitors,
  • Registration of your site with seven major Search Engines (these are like Internet Phone Books),
  • And free maintenance of your site. (One text update per month).  You can change 4 photographs each year.  We have to limit this because scanning, color correcting, and editing photos is a real time consumer.  

The standard site costs only $99/yr., plus a one-time $25 set-up and design fee. You will be listed near the top of the page in your dogpages.net category, and your type will be bold-faced.  View a typical Standard Site.

Your site will be named: www.dogpages.net/your-name.

Extras

  • Additional photographs can be added to your site for an additional $10 each, per year. 
  • If you have a contract you wish to add to your site.  That costs an extra $10 (one time fee).  
  • If you want music in the background (midi files), that is also a $10/yr. charge.  We can help you find the song your are looking for if you need help. 
  • HTML inserts from outside sources (banners, web rings, counters, etc.) is a one time $10 fee.  These can significantly add to your page download time, as these types of things usually reside on someone else's servers, not ours.
  • Adding a pedigree page to your site adds $10 to the annual fee.  And a $10 one time fee for each pedigree beyone the first.  (ex.: 3 pedigrees = $30 the first year, and $10 each additional year).
  • To add an additional pages to your site costs $25 per page.  You can put up to 3 pictures on each additional page.  

Your site's name:

Your site will be named: www.dogpages.net/your-name.

We have only 2 rules regarding "your name" on dogpages.net. You can not use a name that is already being used. And secondly, breeders can not use the dog breed as their name (i.e.: www.dogpages.net/poodles). We need to keep names like this open for future growth. We will most likely be using that page for a list of sites on dogpages.net of all the breeders with that breed of dog.
