The $9 billion North American pet boarding industry is a mature market that is ripe for disruption. Dog kennels represent an antiquated and inconvenient solution to a problem that pet owners have faced for years: finding a trusted, convenient and economic option to look after their dogs. We believe DogVacay, an online marketplace that links dog owners with passionate vetted and insured pet care providers, has a tremendous opportunity to disrupt the traditional cage-oriented kennel market and become the dominant destination for pet boarding.
