DogVacay Fetches Local Pet Sitters With Google Maps

Client

With more than 15,000 hosts in 3,000 cities across the U.S. and Canada since its launch in 2012, DogVacay is a service that connects dog owners with local pet sitters.

Business Challenge

Always looking for ways to expand its offering, DogVacay was looking for a way to integrate location-based information into its host search feature. The goal was to make it easier for dog owners to find hosts right in their own neighborhood, as well as provide additional customization options for dogs in need of special care.

Solution

With Google Maps, integrated by SADA Systems, DogVacay allows pet owners to locate hosts nearby simply by typing in a zip code or street address. Potential hosts are pinpointed on an interactive map linking to profiles that detail the pet sitter’s experience, certifications, price and other details. DogVacay users have mentioned that they like the ability to quickly find sitters nearby — sometimes only blocks away. DogVacay’s Concierge Team has even helped people find dog sitters in their own buildings in New York City.
