New features on dogs.ie

What's new with dogs.ie new site & new features - December 2022

Over the past few months we've been working hard on a new site. As over 85% of our visitors are from mobile devices, we've designed the new site with this in mind. It's now easier to search for a new dog and sell your puppy with dogs.ie. The new site will also enable future new features that we are very excited about.
