2. Use your description to create excitement about your puppies. Use adjectives like adorable, lovable, tiny, rare, athletic, AKC, and silky to describe disposition, breed, size, color, and coat. Don’t fail to brag when pointing out what makes your dog special.
3. Search similar dog classifieds listings to set the amount that will be charged for your puppies. Take into consideration, papers, vaccinations, champion blood lines or any other attributes that add value or can be recovered in your pricing.
What to do when you are contacted about your listing
Now that you have placed your listing, here are some suggestions of how to handle phone calls and emails to make your puppy selling hassle free. When responding to inquiries, encourage people to come make a selection, that you will hold for them until the puppies are old enough to leave the mother. Also let them know the amount upfront that you will need in a non-refundable deposit to hold the puppy and the date the puppy will be available. When the guests arrive present a clean environment, have both parents bathed and on sight to see if possible. If you are selling purebreds have the papers available. To spare confusion show only the puppies that are available. You do not want people falling in love with a puppy they can not have.
