The AKC Marketplace allows you to advertise your purebred litter and grooming services. The American Kennel Club also provides information and support to breeders about health issues, places to get products for your puppies and where you can find a dog show or trainer. 

The AKC Marketplace also has listings for dog boarding and walking. But those services are provided through a partnership with Rover, which is another highly-rated platform on SideHusl.

Although you can advertise more cheaply elsewhere, the AKC imprimatur provides a valuable stamp of approval for your puppies and is likely to bring serious buyers willing to pay real money for your breed. 

However, it’s important to note that dog breeding is more of a calling than a profit-making venture. Dog-breeders maintain that the more you love the animals, the less likely you are to make a lot of money at it. But, well….puppies.
