Request a New Neighborhood
Would you like a more defined area added to the National Dog Directory (TNDD) neighborhoods? You can do it here. The TNDD uses these neighborhoods to help you inform residents in your community about your lost dog. These neighborhoods are aligned to specific National Dog Directory Community groups. If your dog is lost and you change the status of your dog to "Lost", individuals, dog owners, and neighbors who have selected your neighborhood to be a member of will receive notification.
The format for determining a neighborhood must contain some specific information including State, County, City, and Neighborhood. A city or town is defined as an incorporated community. Once you have added the state, county and city you can name your neighborhood as you like. Subdivisions are a popular neighborhood name but may not be the best way to describe your neighborhood.
All new neighborhood requests are reviewed. If you submit a request for a new neighborhood you will be notified of our decision. Most are approved. If you are requesting a subdivision, make sure your spelling is correct. Spelling is not checked. Also, if there are multiple subdivisions in your area, it is a best practice to only use the "Main" Subdivision Name. For example if there is more than one immediately adjacent subdivisions, "Holiday Hills I", "Holiday Hills II", etc, then request a neighborhood, "Holiday Hills".
When you receive notification of approval of your request, you will need to go to your list of dogs and select your new neighborhood.
