How are you affiliated with BrindleBerry Acres?
The blog, BrindleBerry Acres is our sister site! It was created just for dog lovers like you, and contains all kinds of valuable information for pet parents. While REX is focused on Calgary, BrindleBerry Acres is for pet parents all around the world!
What is the difference between the “REX Friendly” and “REX Approved” designations?
A “REX Friendly” business is a non-pet focused business that has ONLY been designated “dog friendly”. For example, a restaurant with a dog-friendly patio, a garden centre, hotel, or rental apartments that allow dogs could all be listed in the REX Collective as “REX Friendly”. If they happen to sell products or services pertaining to pets, those products and services have NOT been screened by REX in the city.
A “REX Approved” businesses are designated as “pet businesses” and they have taken the pass/fail application quiz based on the products and services they offer and have PASSED. Businesses that proudly display the “Seal of Appeal” offer the very best quality products and services.
One exception… Since Veterinary clinics almost always sell food, and the food doesn’t pass REX’s food requirements, the retail products offered by Veterinarians are NOT approved even though the Veterinary services may have earned the clinic a “seal of appeal”.
Why is your site not free to businesses? I have been listed on other directory sites before, and I don’t have to pay for them.
REX in the City is not your typical directory! To ensure that pet parents will find only quality businesses listed on REX, we must screen every REX Approved listing. This additional nose work takes time – even for our basic memberships. We feel like this screening process puts our members above the listings found in other free, less exclusive directories and is well worth the investment in your business!
Please stay tuned for more member exclusive programs that will be coming soon to REX!
Why is my favourite local dog business not listed on your site?
If you don’t see your favourite dog business listed, it’s likely for one of two reasons:
1. They don’t know we exist! Please spread the word – tell them all about us!
2. They have applied, but were not accepted into the collective.
What do I do if I see a business listed on REX that I don't think belongs on the site?
If you have worked with a business you feel isn’t following the REX standards they agreed to, please fill in a dispute form (Coming Soon!) so that we can look into the matter further.
Can I apply to be a REX Rep?
SURE! REX Reps are Calgary’s best known furry Instagram influencers. They exude positivity, and they’re representing for REX! You will be required to chat about us from time to time on your Instagram account, and spread the word about the positivity we bring to YYC. In return, we will set you up with your own FREE REX Rep account on our website (which is basically your own FREE mini website to show off what you can offer as an Influencer!), and we’ll send you a few additional goodies too!
