What inspired you to start your own business?

When I was growing up in the suburbs outside of Boston, I become very accustomed to caring for animals. My family fostered them my whole life and I spent a lot of time volunteering at the Northeast Animal Shelter. Our home was a revolving door for pregnant, sick or stray cats and dogs that needed care or a transitional home. Many of my permanent family members were pets, including a variety of terriers, guinea pigs, frogs and even two rats, appropriately named Ratchel and Ratbecca. I started my first pet service called Joels Pet Care when I was 10 and would walk the local neighborhood pets.

Fast forward to 2013, I had just moved into Boston, got my own place, completed my Masters in Finance and settled into a career with a major investment firm. Finally, I could get a dog of my own! Chompers, my Pittie was my first dog, Milo an Australian Cattle Dog was my second. Next, I needed a dog walker to take care of my pups because my partner and I worked very long hours!

After tracking down the top local services, I started calling around to find the right fit. To my surprise, I was not able to connect with anybody... I couldn't even leave a voicemail because the business's voicemail boxes were full! I was blown away; the pet care industry either had the worst client service I had ever come across, or these businesses were so comfortable that they had lost the desire to even entertain the idea of new clients! When I did finally get a hold of somebody, I quickly realized they were far behind the times, no way to pay bills online, I had to write a weekly check to them, no way to login to a calendar and see my scheduled walks, there was no oversight, I had no idea when they were actually walking my dogs, or where they were going with them. It was then that I realized there was a major gap in the industry and there was an opportunity for somebody to step in and offer the best dog walking service Boston had ever seen!

My plan was simple, and was comprised of three components:
1) Always respond to clients or inquiries in 24 hours or less.
2) Provide 100% transparency though modern technology.
3) Create a system to ensure availability and never turn away business!
