Breed Info Challenge Results

Posted by Zsolt in Company News

We are happy to announce that the winner of the Breed Info Challenge is Petra Kantola from Finland, who submitted 4 breed infos herself and referred another 5. Congratulations Petra and thank you for your enthusiastic participation! We will update this post with a photo of Petra and her  prize, the €400 digital camera, as soon as she collects it. Congratulations and a big thank you to every submitter whose breed info has been accepted. Their prize is a FREE LIFE TIME PEMIUM MEMBERSHIP on DogZoom.

We received many submissions in 10 different languages, which, we believe, reflects the power of our international community. It is also a demonstration of Your selfless willingness to help a good cause. We are rewarding submitters with valuable prizes, but the ultimate reward of your contribution is the pleasure of improving dogs’ lives.

By building this gigantic breed info resource base, we are giving future dog owners a chance to learn about different breeds and chose the one best matching their lifestyle. As a result, there will be fewer stray dogs and more happy families in the world. This is our ultimate reward.

Although the Breed Info Challenge is now officially over, we will continue to work hard to complete this enormous resource base in more than 20 languages containing the description of 360 breeds. Your contribution is and will always be welcome.

The Breed Info Challenge Extended!

Due to the high number of submissions even on the last day of the Breed Info Challenge, we have decided to extend the deadline and give more of you a chance to win the FREE LIFETIME PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP, the €400 Digital Camera, one of the 5 DogZoom cups or one of the 10 floating chairs!

The FREE LIFETIME PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP on DogZoom is automatically yours when your breed info is accepted. Available for the first 100 submitters only.

The €400 Digital Camera goes to the person who submits or refers the most breed infos (Referring means that you invite a friend to participate and your friend mentions your name when submitting. Both yours and your friends’ score increases.)

The cups and floating chairs will be given to people who submitted a breed info and commented on this post on a random basis.

The extended Breed Info Challenge will end 28th February, but we highly recommend that you submit your breed info as soon as possible, because the memberships are given away on a first come first served basis.

Feel free to contact Tibor Berényi with your questions and feedback!

Update on The Breed Info Challenge

We have received and keep receiving great submissions in many different languages. Thank you all for your enthusiasm! As you can see below, we have a couple of extremely keen participants who have submitted or referred more than one breed infos.

We are thrilled by your positive attitude, so we have decided to give a €400 worth digital camera to the person who submits or refers the most breed infos on top of the previously announced prizes. Currently Petra Kantola seems to be in the lead as she submitted 4 breed infos in two languages.

You still have a chance to catch up with her and win the digital camera, all you need to do is submit your breed info and invite as many friends to participate as possible. When your friend submits and mentions you as referral, both yours and your friend’s score increases. Hurry up though, as you only have 5 more days before the challenge ends!

Welcome to the official DogZoom blog!

You are reading the very first DogZoom blog post, which has been inspired by the countless emails asking us to provide a bit more information on what DogZoom is all about.

DogZoom's mascot: ZeeWhen we set out to build DogZoom two years ago, we did it because we realized that the dog world was missing something. It was missing a communication channel that would also help people who were looking to buy a dog. It was missing a platform that would encourage responsible dog breeding and ownership and would utilize the synergy of a truly international dog community.

With the arrival of DogZoom that is all about to change. Without revealing too much too soon, let me tell you that DogZoom will be the place for responsible breeders to sell their puppies but never lose sight of them, for dog owners to reunite with their dog’s families, for dog professionals to share their experience and for every dog lover to form a community, share information and have fun. All this in 15 languages to start with.

In order to make this a reality we need your contribution as well. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the hundreds of people who joined our Facebook fan page, uploaded photos of their dogs and gave us feedback. This is what we would like all of you out there to do. Become active members of our community, by posting photos and comments, taking part in discussions and giving us feedback in every way possible. After all, our goal is to create something that pleases you and your dog.

In this blog, we will keep you posted with latest news and developments of our community and website on a weekly basis. You can also follow us on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook to stay up to date.
