We had the opportunity to attend Techcrunch Disrupt 2016 in NYC.We spoke with Todd Schechter Co- Founder of Dog Parker With Dog Parker, you can safely board your dog while you step inside the grocery store, grab a cup of coffee, or pick up a package from the post office. Instead of leaving your dog home alone for unwanted periods of time, tying him up outside, or limiting his walks, keep your dog with you and realize the convenience of running all of your errands and living an active lifestyle with your best friend in tow.
You must be a member to use Dog Parker (kind of like ZipCar and CitiBike). Dog Parker costs twenty cents a minute (twelve dollars an hour). Use of a Dog Parker house is timed and charged by-the-minute so you have the most flexibility and only pay for the exact amount of time you use. The houses are smart with webcam and temperature monitoring. Dog Parker houses are professionally sanitized every day and on an as-needed basis depending on usage rates, the weather, and other conditions. Your dog must be at least four months old to use a Dog Parker house and must be up-to-date with their vaccinations.
