  1. If you have a ready article, send it directly to us. We aren’t too picky with the articles that we accept, simply be sure it satisfies the article quality requirements.
  2. If you have topics to pitch, list them down in your email (offer at least 5 topics). If we like any, we will let you know. If we don’t like any of your pitches, we will send you topics from our end; you only do an article if you like any of the topics proposed by us.
  3. If you would consider receiving topics from us, let us know in your email. We will send you topics and you can get started if you like any.

In all cases, your final submission will be assessed for quality and will only be accepted if it meets all guidelines.

Article Quality:

Article may not contain any grammatical and/or linguistic errors.
Article must be 100% original.
Article must be unique to Emotional Pet Support, meaning you may not publish the article anywhere else.
We prefer articles that are informative and attempt to exhaustively address a particular topic. Have the article include few external links (and if you could include at least one link from one of our blogs that would be greatly appreciated).
We prefer articles that are broken down into well-defined sub-sections and sections.
We prefer articles that make good use of ‘white spaces’.
We do not prefer articles that are excessively promotional in nature or relating to CBD.

Links and author bio:

All internal links are placed at the editor’s discretion.
You are not required to link to relevant sources. You are welcome to put in links within your article though – however, an editor will take a second look and only keep ones that enhance the article.
If you need a link back to your website/blog, make sure you mention it in your introductory email. We can allow one do-follow link back to your website/blog in the author bio.

Suggested length of article:

We only consider long-form articles that exhaustively covers a particular topic related to pets. Please have the article be above 300 words, 1000 words would be preferred. You can choose to go as high as 2000 words if necessary.


Compliment all this with a non-copyright photo (i.e., Flickrr). You can insert images within your article wherever and however you want. Just FYI, we plan to do the ‘featured images’ at our end anyway, but just in case you have a really good image, feel free to post it in your article.
Make sure you own the rights to any image you use within the article. Preferred image format is JPEG.


‘Credits’ are posted within articles when appropriate. However, ALL copyright of articles/materials etc., that are published on will remain with Emotional Pet Support. This also means that we can choose to edit, redirect, or even delete articles whenever we like.
