Thanks to the power of the Internet, being a pet owner today is much different than it was a few short years ago.
For the vast majority of pet owners the #1 place to turn for the most up-to-date pet information is - you guessed it - the Internet. But as static informational-based Web sites are quickly becoming passé, social networking Web sites are pushing their way to the top of search engine results and eventually onto the computer screens of devoted pet lovers everywhere.
“It’s simple, the Internet is a very Pet Friendly place to be”, explains Rhona Sutter of Pet Protect®, a Naples based company that operates The Pet Realty Network™ and it’s new social network for pet owners, appropriately titled Your Pet Friendly Community, launched this week.
Pet owners are a wealth of information, and when they want the very best for their pets, they want real opinions and feedback from real pet owners. The Pet Realty Network’s innovative online Community offers a different kind of social networking where pet owners can gather from across the country and around the world to share their opinions and experience about a range of topics from the latest pet news to pet product reviews, pet health information, where to find the best local pet parks and beaches, pet friendly rentals, a special lost and found pet section, pet services and special events and more.
Utter the words “social networking” to anyone with an internet connection today and a few dominant leaders come to mind. There is of course MySpace with it’s astounding 180 million users worldwide, Facebook recently jumping to 27 million active users, and even Dogster.com and Catster.com, where every dog or cat can have a web page, proudly serving its 400,000 (human) members.
As a provider of Pet Friendly Real Estate for pets and their people, it was inevitable that The Pet Realty Network™ entered into the Social Networking scene to capture the attention of the 69.1 million pet owners in the United States hitting the World Wide Web as their main source of information.
“The mission of Your Pet Friendly Community is to provide real information straight from pet owners from Communities all over the country and also to increase exposure for our dedicated Pet Friendly Real Estate Agent Members of The Pet Realty Network™”, explains Sutter.
“We have several articles on training and behavior” writes Pet Realty Network™ member and pet trainer Tam Cordingley of Rutherfordton, North Carolina, and Traci Fant, a Pet Realty Network™ member in Crossville, Tennessee thinks it is “a great tool” for pet owners and members.
As the word is catching on, members like what they see.
