Britishkennels.co.uk, the British Kennels Directory, is the newest of the websites featured here. With the simple aim of helping dog owners looking for a local boarding kennels, the site was launched at the start of June 2017. Finished a little later than expected, British Kennels is the partner site of our British Cattery Directory. As you would expect of a new site, the Kennels Directory is under active development and will be expanded later in the year.
As the name suggests, the site contains a directory of local boarding kennels, but we also added a directory of local veterinary practices and dog rescue groups. Later in the year, we plan to add a directory of dog breeders. Kennel owners and vets are asked to pay a small fee to feature their business in the directory, but dog rescue and other pet welfare groups can register for free.
Visitors to the kennels directory can look for kennels in their area, and can filter them county or town, for easier searching. Each kennels has its own dedicated page which includes a description, all available contact details and a map to show the kennels' location. Visitors can click a link to visit the kennels' website to learn more or get in touch, or they can send an email directly to the kennels via a built-in contact form.
We needed to build the Kennels Directory with WordPress, because the site needed to incorporate automated functions which would allow kennels owners, veterinary practices and rescue groups to register on the site, create listings for their businesses and to allow visitors to get in touch. Using WordPress also allowed us to include the online payment systems. Only created in June 2017, the Kennels Directory is in its infancy. As visitor numbers increase we plan to add extra sections to it, such as a directory of recognised dog breeders, a blog section and more. If you visit the site, we hope you find it useful!
The British Kennels Directory is one of our own websites, and we built it because we love dogs and wanted to provide a useful service to other dog owners. It's almost a hobby website for us in that respect. However, designing websites is also our job! If you are interested in having a website for a business or organisation you are involved in, or even a personal website, speak to us. Our prices are more than affordable and you are guaranteed a professionally-built website that will do you proud, and personal service.
