The Airbnb of Dog Boarding
Ask yourself this question- would you rather spend $50+ per night for dog boarding at a kennel with many other dogs without a consistent supervisor? Wouldn’t you rather pay closer to $25 per night and have your dog stay in an actual home with an individual or family who will cater to your dogs personalized needs? The preferred choice is obvious and some startup companies have caught on.
A new trend for boarding dogs is popping up all over the USA. Websites like DogVacay.com provide online marketplaces, similar to AirBnb, for people to find others to care for their dogs. Hosts are able to provide a variety of options. Some are home during the day and are able to give your dog plenty of individual attention, others work during the day. Additionally, many hosts have dogs of their own for the guest dog to play with.
DogVacay.com founder Aaron Hirschhorn stated “Right now there are kennels and there are private pet sitters and we realized there was a need for a marketplace to bring together responsible dog lovers with causal and professional dog sitters who can provide a more affordable and better experience for dogs.”
To help customers feel at ease with the dog sitter they are choosing, DogVacay.com sitters are vetted through interviews, reference checks and social network connections. DogVacay also provides insurance for emergency veterinary care.
With the rate of dog sitters climbing in the major metropolitan areas of the United States and Canada, DogVacay is helping dog owners save money and have piece of mind when spending time away from their pets.
