2. Join a breed-specific club and socialize with members.

 

3. Take your dog to dog parks and connect with fellow dog owners.

 

4. Volunteer at a local shelter or humane society.

 

5. Partner with local shelters and promote pets ready for adoption on your website or social media (i.e., Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat).

 

6. Sponsor a local pet adoption event.

 

7. Set up an Instagram page to show off your own animals and use hashtags to promote yourself as a #petfriendlyrealestateagent.

 

8. Share articles about pets via your website and Facebook.

 

9. Use the phrase “Pet-Friendly Real Estate Agent” in your marketing and use the tagline “When you and your pooch are ready for a new home and backyard, talk with a Realtor.”

 

10. Bill yourself as a relocation specialist for buyers with pets.
