Drafting your for sale ad

As you are preparing your for sale ad you can save it along the way. Beginning with images you will upload up to 10 photos of your dog, and then fill in the rest of the information. Finally you will click pay to publish and complete the payment. Posting your ad should take less than 5 minutes to complete. Once it’s done, your ad will be reviewed by one of our specialists.

Adding images and selection breeds in your for sale ad

Ads remain live for up to 30 days and can be bumped up to 3 times†.

†up to 3 times” means, it can be 1, 2 or 3 times. The number of bumps available depends on multiple factors, see number of bumps.

Editing your ad advert it’s published

It’s important that you post accurate information about your dog. Certain parts of the ad cannot be updated once it’s published, including

  • Breed
  • Date of birth
  • Country of birth
  • Microchip numbers
  • Number & gender of dogs

Should you need to change some parts to fix a mistake you can contact us. It is not possible to add in or remove microchips once the ad is published.

Adding multiple microchips to your ad

You can add as many dogs as you have in your littler that you’d like to sell.

If you forget a chip you can also click on the “add another dog” button to add another entry.

Once you enter the microchip number and hit confirm, you will be asked for the “Owners Pin” on the bottom right of your microchip certificate. Step 2.1.

Upon entering your owners pin, a one time passcode will be sent by SMS or by email. This is a 6 digit code sent by Fido to confirm you have access to the owners credentials.

Fido will then confirm your ownership and fill in the information about the sex of the dog. To add another dog you can reuse the same field about the “Add another dog”.

Once you’ve entered the 15 digits you can proceed back through the verification steps the the 2nd microchip by clicking “Confirm ownership”.
