CityDog Magazine: Print + Digital
With readership shifting from print to digital and the number of devices available to reach this ever-growing audience, CityDog is shifting its focus from a primarily print magazine to a mix of print and digital. What does that mean for advertisers? It means, increased circulation and opportunities to reach your target audience through a variety of channels.

CityDog will now offer four special print editions a year, distributed via paid subscriptions, independent pet stores, boutique hotels, local events and partnerships with area shelters. These issues will also be available digitally and distributed through a variety of outlets including our monthly e-newsletter, Twitter and Facebook feeds, published on Issuu, Magcloud and, and be formatted for the iPad, iPhone, Kindle, Nook and other devices, reaching tens of thousands of additional readers.

"Your user interface for your magazine is the best. My favorite part is being able to click on a product and get directly to that item on that site. Also being able to enlarge and move around on the page...really helpful when reading. And, I love all of the new places to try!" ~Stephanie D'arcy-Penoyer {Facebook follower}

"One of the best investments we ever made." ~Christopher Steinmann, CEO, Glowdoggie {current advertiser}

"I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy getting your beautiful magazine in the mail. For being a local magazine you do an outstanding job. Your articles are informative and fun to read. The topics are interesting and very useful; the photography is outstanding and the mix between advertising and real content is very tastefully done. Please let your people know how much I appreciate the work you do! Thank you," Greta Pollaris {CityDog subscriber}

CityDog Website: Travel Partner Program
Our Travel Partner Program allows dog-friendly destinations, hotels and resorts the ability to engage directly with CityDog readers by managing their own page on the CityDog website. Essentially, we will create an editorial-style page for you that includes a large image with your logo, a photo gallery, a description of your destination/property, pet amenities, your pet policy, any other features you want to include plus a link to your website, contact information and a map to your destination or property. The content can also be easily edited to feature ongoing specials, promotions and events that we will promote on your behalf via our social media outlets.

To give you a visual, here is a Travel Partner page: Vacations by the Sea.

As you can see, the style is editorial, but the content can be controlled by you (with some guidelines from us for format). In addition, the page includes a variety of ways for readers to share via their own social media channels.

"We read your article about Vacations by the Sea, visited, and absolutely loved it. This weekend will be our fifth trip with our schipperke, Sophie, who loves the place as much as we do...Thanks City Dog for making us aware of one of our favorite places." ~Kyle Kincaid {CityDog reader}

CityDog Website: Wellness Partner Program
Our Wellness Partner Program is identical to our Travel Partner Program, but tailored to pet food, supplement and treat companies, veterinarians and clinics, and any other product and/or service in the business of animal wellness.

Again, we will create an editorial-style page that includes a large image and your logo, a photo gallery (optional), a description of your company/products/services, and any other related news you want to include plus a link to your website. The content can be edited to include the below that we will then promote via our social media outlets on a monthly basis, reaching thousands of potential customers:

Current press releases
Product features
Health and wellness tips
Printable coupons

To give you a visual, here is a current Wellness Partner page: Animal Critical Care and Emergency Services.

"I really love how our advertorial page turned out at CityDog Magazine." ~Virginia Piper {ACCES}
