Anyone who underestimates the potential market of pet owners who love to travel with or without their furry friends is missing out on a startup opportunity.
Startup DogVacay takes the concept of the “sharing economy” and throws it to the dogs. Unlike other companies that help people rent out their houses, like Airbnb, or their cars, like RelayRides and Getaround, Dog Vacay is a marketplace for people to find others to take care of their dogs.
DogVacay, which raised $1 million in seed funding March, has added venture firm Andreessen Horowitz as an investor.
