Idea

DogVacay has over 40,000 certified pet sitters across the U.S. and Canada. You can confidently book a professional who offers dog walking, pet boarding and pet sitting. The best part is that you can pick from five-star-rated sitters who are fully trained and will put your mind at ease with daily photo updates and premium medical coverage. It's a safe, convenient and affordable way to make sure your best friend is in a loving home while you're away.

Our Collaboration

The 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.
