Puppy Listing Guidelines
Buckeye Puppies appreciates our sellers, and we strive to make the listing process as straightforward as possible. However, there are some guidelines that our sellers must adhere to when posting puppy listings.
It is important to know that Buckeye Puppies is a regional website and only allows listings for puppies in Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. Please use our sister site, Lancaster Puppies, to place an ad. If you are located in either of those three states, your listings will automatically show up on Buckeye Puppies. Please be advised that it can take up to an hour for your listing to appear on Buckeye Puppies after placing your ad on Lancaster Puppies.
Creating Puppy Advertisements
The first thing you’ll need to do is create a user account. In order to list puppies for sale, you’ll need to request that your user account be upgraded to a seller account. The information you submit is carefully reviewed before approval, so please provide complete and accurate information. Additionally, make sure to complete the two-factor authentication process. Upon approval of your account, you can begin listing puppies for sale.
To create a puppy advertisement, fill out the puppy’s information, such as its name, date of birth, breed, and temperament. Then, add photos of the puppy for sale. We recommend taking pictures of the puppy at all angles. We also advise that you include photos of the puppy’s parents. If your ad includes photos of other puppies for sale, it will be removed. If you are selling multiple puppies, you must create a different ad for each puppy.
After creating your ad(s), proceed to check out with a credit card (Visa/Mastercard/Discover) on our secure server. Ads cost $19.00 each, and you may purchase as many as you need.
Here are some things to keep in mind after you’ve created your puppy listings:
- Potential buyers will contact you directly through the information you provided when you set up your account.
- You can update photos of the puppy at any time, but you cannot change the listing’s title or the puppy’s breed once the ad is live.
- Unless you renew your listing, it will automatically go offline after 45 days.
- At no time will Buckeye Puppies ask for your login information, nor request to confirm your account once it is created. If you receive a notice that your account must be confirmed, let us know right away. This is likely not an email coming from Buckeye Puppies and could be a phishing attempt.
One Puppy Per Ad
You may only advertise one puppy per listing. Any ad that contains language indicating that there are other puppies in the litter for sale, or photos of other puppies besides the one specified in the listing, will be deleted with no refund. Additionally, any ads that were created, and then modified to indicate that there are multiple puppies for sale will be deleted with no refund. Each ad is for a single puppy, not a litter. If you have multiple puppies in a litter for sale, you must create individual ads for each puppy in the litter. Also not permitted is switching the ad to a different puppy once the original puppy is sold.
No contact information (phone numbers, email addresses, or websites) shall be put into the puppy description or included on the photos. This information should be added to the “seller profile” which can be viewed by puppy buyers. Websites are only allowed on seller profiles if they do not show more puppies available than what is listed on our site.
All puppies must be entered into the correct and appropriate breed categories. Purebred categories are reserved strictly for purebred puppies. Any puppy that does not follow the common breed standards is subject to questioning. We reserve the right to request a DNA test to allow a puppy in the purebred category, regardless of registration papers. Mixed or hybrid puppies that are in the purebred category will be moved to the correct category without notification. Mixed breeds must be entered into a mix (hybrid) category or the appropriate “designer breed.” Three-way mix puppies cannot be put into two-way mix categories. If you have a breed or mix that you do not see a category for, please contact us.
You are welcome to list your client’s puppies. However, you may only provide a link to an external website for that specific seller, and the listing must reflect only the actual seller’s information. You may not include watermarks, URLs, etc. in any part of the listing, including photos and videos, unless they represent the seller’s information.
Stud Dog Advertising
Stud dogs listings can be purchased for $10.00. These listings are active for 6 months. During that time, you can update the pictures, stud dog details, and the contact information on your listing. Buckeye Puppies reserves the right to terminate any ad at any time, for any reason.
Disclaimer: By creating a puppy or stud dog ad, you agree to our terms and policies. Buckeye Puppies reserves the right to edit or delete ads.
Please only advertise if you are committed to taking good care of your puppies and dogs and would like to see them placed in happy homes. We sincerely thank you for your understanding and look forward to working with you!
