Trupanion, DogVacay Announce Partnership

Trupanion Inc., a provider of medical insurance for cats and dogs that is headquartered in Seattle, Wash., has partnered with DogVacay, an online home dog boarding and pet services community, to add value to their member experiences.

The partnership paired the pet-centric companies with the ultimate goal of delivering excellent pet care. Since beginning in 2012, DogVacay has grown to more than 30,000 pet sitters across the U.S. and Canada, which provides a range of locations for Trupanion’s over 300,000 pets to choose from.

Trupanion and DogVacay plan to focus together on providing pets with the best care possible whether in the veterinary hospital or while pet owners are out on vacation, according to the companies.

"Pets are part of our lives at Trupanion and, on the rare occasion when we’re not able to take them with us on vacation, we want to offer a reliable partner that leaves us confident in the care they receive when we’re not home," said Darryl Rawlings, Trupanion CEO. "DogVacay was the obvious choice as our preferred pet-sitting provider we recommend to our employees and members."

DogVacay also welcomed the opportunity to invite Trupanion’s employees to their network of pet-sitters.

"We’re thrilled to work alongside Trupanion to add value to their member experience," said Aaron Hirschhorn, DogVacay founder and CEO. "As much as we hate to think about it, pets will sometimes need a trip to the veterinarian. Trupanion can add extra peace of mind for any pet owner."
