DogVacay Ties With Cesar Millan On Giveaway
Are you a fan of the "dog whisperer", Cesar Millan? DogVacay, one of Silicon Beach's promising startups, said this week that it has launched a giveaway with Cesar Millan, which will award a combination dog and human vacation getaway. According to the pet care marketplace, it will give a dog a weekend with Cesar Millan at the Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita, and a luxury resort weekend in Southern California for the dog's humans, a rental car, and a Visa prepaid card with $400 to cover meals and incidentals.
Apparently, Millan is a host on DogVacay, and has been since last year. DogVacay's site is a peer-to-peer site which lets dog owners both find people to care for their pet, as well as provide dog boarding to others, much like an Airbnb for pets. DogVacay is venture backed by Benchmark Capital, First Round Capital, Science Inc, and others.
