Create a Pet Profile

To create a Pet Profile, enter your account page by clicking the Account link, located at the top of each page. Then, under Pet Profiles in the your pages box, click the Create New Profile link. This will bring you to a page with five settings. Once you have completed a Pet Profile, a link to it will be listed under the Pet Profiles section on your account page and under your name/avatar in the discussion forum.

The Pet's Name setting is self explanatory.

To set your pet's Age, either enter his/her birth month and year in this format - 2009 Jul - or simply click the text box, wait for the calendar to appear, then select your pet's birth year, months, then click on the day - or approximate day. Displaying your pet's age is helpful to the community when answering questions in the discussion forum.

The Breed setting for your pet is most likely going to be "Doberman," but we like all kinds of animals here on Gentle Doberman, so if you want to create a webpage for a different dog breed, or even a pet that's not a dog, you are more than welcome. So just enter the breed and/or type of animal here.

The Body section is where you create the actual page. It functions similar to a word processing program in how you can add text and images using the toolbar. See the Help section for specifics.

And finally you have the Meta tags section. This section is not necessary, but adding data here will make your page look more important to search engines (Google, Bing, and Yahoo) and will make it easier for people to find your page by searching for key words it contains.

Don't forget to click the Save button at the bottom when you are complete. Also, you can click the Preview button to see how the page will look before saving. Regardless, you can always come back and edit the page by clicking the Edit tab you will see at the top of your page when you are logged in.
