We prefer you photos sent electronically, either from a digital camera or scanned photograph, but they must have a resolution of 300 dpi at the size they will appear in your ad. Otherwise, they may not be suitable for reproduction due to lack of quality.  If your images are received and we determine that the resolution is below what is acceptable, we will contact you before producing your ad.

Your text should include all information, such as the dog’s registered name, call name, sire and dam, owners, breeders, handlers, addresses, phone numbers and email, information about your dog’s major wins and additional text such as a thank you to judges may also be included. However be aware that the more text you have the less space their is for the photos and less design opportunity.
