DogVacay Debuts iOS App
Need to find a place for your dog to stay when you're out of town? Santa Monica-based online pet sitting marketplace DogVacay has just released a new app for the iPhone and iPod Touch, aimed at helping pet owners reserve time with dog sitters using their devices. DogVacay--which lets pet owners find other pet owners willing to pet sit or take care of their pet when they're away--said the new app lets users reserve a dog sitter directly from their phone. DogVacay had already offered up an app for hosts on the service. The new app is free, and also lets users browser reviews of hosts, get updates and photos of their dog while they are away, and call or email a DogVacay host. DogVacay is one of a number of services which are empowering people to run their own businesses, helping connect dog owners with other dog owners for petsitting services.
