Kennel website – benefits

A  kennel website serves several purposes. Which ones are they?


The kennel website has primarily a presentation function. People interested in your litter are also able to get a better picture of your breeding on the basis of your website. In the context of competition, which is high in the breeding of certain animals, the presentation function of the website plays positive role for your kennel.

Kennel website benefits


The good name/brand you build in the community as a breeder is the biggest advantage you can get. Also thanks to your website, you are able to build your name/brand by giving a face to your breeding and activities. Color scheme, cover photo or logo – these are things that the wider public will remember, not just colleagues from the profession.


Website is able to supply your kennel with the credibility which you need to attract good and responsible people. Your photo, breeding news or contact give visitors a legitimate feeling about your kennel.

If you also have your own Facebook page or Instagram or YouTube channel, the trust of interested parties only increases.


Good findability for specific keywords, this is also a win when looking for people interested in the litter and spreading awareness about animal breeding. In today’s digital age, most people when thinking about buying an animal will most likely look on one of the search engines. A website is a must if you want to have a chance of showing up in search results for particular keywords.


Own kennel website will enable the breeder to communicate more effectively and easily with potential interested parties, as well as with owners of animals from previous litters and the general public.

The contact form on the website can facilitate the initial selection process in the case of a large number of interested parties.

Kennel website – must-haves

In case you want the kennel website to fulfill its function and deliver all the benefits, the website must contain:

Information about the animal/animals

The information about the animal/animals is the most important of the entire website for the kennel. Basic information about the animal includes (some of the items below may be redundant or missing depending on the animal. The list is primarily aimed at keeping dogs and/or cats):


  • The name of the individual animal
  • Names of the individual`s parents
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Height / weight
  • Color
  • Passed exams / successful exhibitions
  • Health outcomes
  • Description of nature
  • Photos/videos
  • Pedigree

Kennel information

Who are you? When did you start with animal breeding? And why? What is your story? A correct and trust-inspiring website for a kennel must not lack a sub-page, or a section, About us. This is where you can share your story with visitors, tell them your perspective on breeding, as well as describe the goals of your breeding.

Information about previous litters

Your kennel website must have a sub-page dedicated to the previous litters. Of course, only if you have already bred some previous litters.

Names of parents, their medical results, obtained exams and also at least one photo. Grandparents’ names. Date of birth, order, names and sex of the cubs born, their birth weights or health results (if available). This is just the basis of what you should definitely share with your visitors about each of your litters.

Videos from the new owners or photos of how individuals from the litter grow will definitely add value.

Notification of planned litter

If you are planning a litter in the future, it is always good to invest in the so-called notification of planned litter. You can find many graphic designers on the Internet who will create a flyer with the planned litter for a reasonable price.

This announcement about the planned litter, the so-called flyer, you can use it on your website and it will add credibility and professionalism, as well as the design of your website

Notification of planned litter

A photo gallery is an unwritten obligation. Do not forget to name the photos, preferably with the name of the animal and the date or age of the animal when the photo was taken. This will help visitors and interested parties to create a better idea of ​​how individual animal can look in different months/years or during different activities.

It should not be forgotten that one photo is worth a thousand words, and therefore it is important to take care of the gallery and not neglect to update it on your website for the kennel.


Contact information such as the name of the kennel, your name and address, e-mail or telephone should certainly not be missing. If you have a Facebook page or an Instagram profile, don’t forget to add icons on the page and make it easier for visitors to redirect.

You can share the contact with your visitors in the form of your own subpage ( or in the form of a footer that will be displayed on every subpage of your website.

TIP: Take advantage of the possibility to create your own blog and share news from your kennel in the form of articles!
