Hi There !

Just noticed a new fancy/glossy magazine:  "New York Dog."

My friends run a dog training/dog boarding business near San Jose, California.
Their slow season starts in January;  that's when they need to advertise.
Right now, they only advertise in community newspapers and on the Internet.

A 5-star answer would be three magazines or other publications that
would reach Bay Area dog owners.

All comments greatly appreciated.

Thanks a million!

Hello, I am following up on your question. Here are some national dog
magazines that reach the Bay Area, by subscription and in bookstores:
"Dog Fancy", "Dog World" and "Dog and Kennel".  I also included a
website for listing dog trainers.

This is a discount site where you can order all three magazines:

Dog World 
  Magazine Review and Description:
  "Whether yours is a show dog or a lovable mutt, the Dog World, America?s
  oldest all-breed dog magazine, is for you. Experts offer informative advice
  on health, breeding and genetics, nutrition and grooming"
There is also a national magazine "Dog Fancy"
  Magazine Review and Description:
  "If your dog is a focal point in your life, then Dog Fancy is the magazine  
  that can help you achieve a greater appreciation for that lovable pet. Great 
  tips on grooming and health care, plus regular features about dog lovers
  and breeders, and, of course, the dogs themselves, give Dog Fancy a warm,  
  lovable read, just like the pets the magazine covers." 

The other magazine would be Dog & Kennel
  Magazine Review and Description:
  "Dog and Kennel presents informative and entertaining articles about 
  different breeds. You?ll learn everything you need to know, from training 
  your puppy to what it means when Sparky goes ?grrrr!? In this magazine,
  you?ll also find tips on health care, feeding, grooming, bonding, events
  and how to have just plain fun with your dog." 

A Bay area website for trainers to list on:
  "We will list trainers/handlers that have reasonable experience handling  
  dogs and come with good references from past clients. If  you would like to  
  list on FPS' site, please E-MAIL us with your name, address, phone number,
  e-mail address and website URL, if applicable. 
  Local Information: 
  San Francisco Bay Area and Central Coast

I hope these are useful. Please let me know if I can be of further
assistance. jdb-ga

Hi Ron,

Is there anyone you DON'T know? I will contact Oxford University Press
to have the word "entrepreneur" changed to "rontrepreneur". I like the
way you think.

I guess the dog business beats parking cars and pumping gas in San
Jose! I'm intrigued as to why the biz might slow down in January. I
presume that lots of kids might receive pets as Christmas gifts. All
the more need for January training I would have thought. Apparently
not so?

Would you care to drop into ? (Yep, with an "e" not an "o")

Regards, Phil

Thanks, as always.  You are The Best!


P.S.   You gave some religious information back in 2003.
Wow!  Terrific!  The Lord and PinkFreud work in mysterious ways...

Hi again Ron,

Thanks for the hello and kudos. Reference to the commentors was just
to make contact to further your ideas if you wanted to. I'm not the
instigator of the site.

Good to see that you have your fingers in lots of pies. I wish you
well with your ventures and all the very best to you and your family
for Christmas.

>> The Lord and PinkFreud work in mysterious ways...

That we do. A big difference, though, is that the Lord is eternal, and
His mysterious ways always have a reason. I, on the other hand, am
middle-aged, and my mysterious ways are generally the result of
"hardening of the smarteries" (also known as "oldtimer's disease").
