DogVacay inches toward profitability with pet sitting business

DogVacay inches toward profitability with pet sitting business-1-职场创业-DogVacay,and,million,that,the
   Known as an “Airbnb for dogs,” Santa Monica-based  DogVacay  has spent almost five years building up a robust dog-sitting business.
  Betting that owners were looking for better solutions for boarding their pets, DogVacay created a platform that made it easier to find and book affordable care. From overnight stays to dog walking, DogVacay offers a range of services in regions throughout the United States and Canada.
  Now with a $70 million revenue run rate, DogVacay tells TechCrunch that they expect to hit profitability in 2017. The site matches owners and sitters and DogVacay takes a cut of each transaction.
   CEO Aaron Hirschhorn tells us that he estimates boarding to be a $7 billion market and they hope to capture a growing portion of that.  “There’s a tremendous amount of demand,” he said. But they’ve also found over 30,000 vetted hosts who want to make “extra money watching dogs.” (  Cats  , chickens and chinchillas are also welcome).
  As with many marketplaces, the trick is “balancing supply and demand at the hyperlocal level,” said Hirschhorn. He’s welcoming CTO Michael Root to build a better platform for both pet owners and sitters.
   But DogVacay is not the only option on the market. Seattle-based Rover has been gaining significant traction,  raising an aditional $40 million this week.  
   Totaling $90 million,  Rover has more funding  and in many metrics is a bigger business, including its  $100 million revenue run rate  . But DogVacay is close behind and makes more money per host, on average.

  Ultimately, pet-owners “want someone who’s going to take care of your animals and love them as much as you do,” said Root.

一语道尽爱情的残忍。情到深处人孤。疾苦使人成熟,强项的人会感悟爱的真谛,而懦弱的人徒生怅恨。
