Our Print Distribution
Our distribution is mainly via our stand at Pet Expos throughout Australia and via subscription from our website. It is extended through the vets, pet shops, newsagents, dog and cat clubs as well as other animal, bird and reptile clubs. We are sponsors of all Australian ANKC dog Councils’ clubs such as Dogs NSW, Dogs Victoria, Dogs QLD etc. Thus we are high on the agenda of purebred registered dog and cat breeders due to our postion as Australia’s largest sponsor of animal clubs and agricultural shows since 2003.
Pet Public: Our readers are pet owners. They are animal lovers. 95% are dog owners. Our publications and website are ‘cross pet’ which works whether the reader is a breeder or a pet owner. Dog, Cat, Horse and Bird breeders and pet bird owners also keep dogs and cats and vica versa! Everywhere our books go, they go to animal lovers. All visitors to www.petdirectory.com.au are animal lovers. 99% of web visitors vist the Dog Section.
Vet & Pet Shop Distribution: The Pet Public is also reached via our print publication at veterinary clinics and petshops. You would find it difficult to find a vet or pet shop that doesn’t have a copy of The Pet Directory under the counter to help their customers with finding a breeder or specialist product that they don’t stock such as pet funeral urns or snake repellers or dog wheelchairs etc
Our Print Run: The print run is 10,000 copies of The Pet Directory book annually We also print 50,000 collector animal cards per year that we hand out at pet expos and via our mailouts to pet owners. The animal cards promote The Pet Directory and www.petdirectory.com.au which is why our site is so busy and our book subscriptions so high. The Pet Directory is housed as part of the National Library Australia collection of which we are proud. Our 3 Annual editions of The Pet Directory are: 1. QLD, WA & NT, 2. NSW &ACT 3. VIC, SA & TAS.
