The partnership pairs two rapid-growth pet-centric companies with the ultimate goal of delivering excellent pet care. Since beginning in 2012, DogVacay has grown to more than 30,000 pet sitters across the US and Canada—providing a range of locations for Trupanion’s over 300,000 pets.
Trupanion and DogVacay will together focus on providing pets with the best care possible, whether in the veterinary hospital or while pet owners are out on vacation.
“Pets are part of our lives at Trupanion and on the rare occasion when we’re not able to take them with us on vacation, we want to offer a reliable partner that leaves us confident in the care they receive when we’re not home,” said Trupanion CEO Darryl Rawlings. “DogVacay was the obvious choice as our preferred pet-sitting provider we recommend to our employees and members. DogVacay’s qualified pet-sitters are the best option for pet owners when a pet would be happier staying home because the trip or destination isn’t right for their pet.”
According to DogVacay, the company also welcomed the opportunity to invite Trupanion’s pet-passionate and experienced employees to their network of pet-sitters.
“We’re thrilled to work alongside Trupanion to add value to their member experience,” said DogVacay founder and CEO Aaron Hirschhorn. “As much as we hate to think about it, pets will sometimes need a trip to the veterinarian. Trupanion can add extra peace of mind for any pet owner.”
