OK, I have to admit I think this is a great idea. DogVacay is an Airbnb-like service for dogs. The site lets users search for, find and hire dog sitters for the day, overnight or longer stays. According to the site, the sitters:
"range from professional pet sitters with ranches to experienced dog lovers in cozy homes and they can't wait to meet your pup!"
They even provide a doggy concierge to help you pick the right sitter and plan activities for your dog.
It's pretty clear that VCs and entrepreneurs believe in the "pet humanization" trend. For more on this trend, see our Pet Trends section.
