A Visit To DogVacay’s L.A. HQ To Meet The People (And Dogs) Behind The Airbnb For Pets

DogVacay, the startup that runs a peer-to-peer online marketplace for dog boarding, has seen some nice growth in recent months, raising a nice chunk of venture capital money from big-name investors and recently crossing more than 10,000 hosts on its platform since its launch just over a year ago in March 2012.

It turns out that DogVacay has also made a name for itself as a startup to watch in its local Silicon Beach scene — while TechCrunch TV was visiting Los Angeles this past week, when we’d ask local techies what companies were heating up lately, DogVacay’s name came up quite often. So we made it a point to stop by DogVacay’s Santa Monica headquarters to see what all the buzz is about for ourselves.

Watch the video embedded above to get a quick look at DogVacay’s Santa Monica digs and hear CEO and co-founder Aaron Hirschhorn talk about DogVacay’s founding, growth, and plans for the future.
