Sniff Snout

Revolutionizing the Pet Care services industry! A collaborative marketplace connecting pet owners with trusted pet care providers.

 

COMPANY OVERVIEW

 

Sniff Snout will revolutionize the pet care services industry by providing a SAAS platform and Mobile App which provides a one stop shop for pet owners. This SAAS and Mobile app connects pet owners with certified independent pet care providers, while providing the pet care providers with an all inclusive, turnkey service upon which to build and run their business. Sniff Snout will disrupt and reinvent the highly fragmented pet care provider industry.

Pet owners will have peace of mind that the pet care provider is vetted, mentored, interviewed and certified as well as being bonded and insured that supports total credibility. The pet owner will be provided with transparent and documented care of the pet which guarantees peace of mind.

Our mission is to introduce a new way for pet care providers to develop their own business as well as an opportunity to grow their own network of pet care provider services. Our innovative service is to support both the front and back end business, marketing and matching of dog owners through proprietary software that can be used for the individual or to expand into multiple pet companies.

TESTIMONIALS

“It’s hard to find true animal lovers who also have the business savvy (ie. Attention to details, good communication, and professionalism) to keep my type-A tendencies satisfied. Sniff Snout is a great combination of the two and I’m impressed with what I’ve seen so far. I use them daily for dog walking. I also love having them board LuLu when I am away.”

These dog lovers will take your doggy out for an afternoon field trip! To the woods, the beach, any great natural outdoor area, where your doggy can run off leash. I haven’t tried that yet, but they walk Buster every week, and he loves it. He gets a solo walk for $18 for 45 min. I was so happy I got to choose the person who I wanted to walk my dog. A quality, hip, and outdoorsy vibe to this group and great website. Buster says paws up to this place!

We’ve had some really good experiences with Sniff Snout! We mostly limited to pet sitting and the occasional off leash hike. Our dog doesn’t always play nice with other dogs so it’s not always easy to have a friend watch him. The peace of mind Sniff Snout gives us is exceptional as is the customized pick/up drop off time at our house.

I have used Sniff Snout repeatedly. I usually get dog walks once or more each week and have been extremely happy with the service overall. The walkers are consistent as I get to choose who I want to care for my dog. The scheduling is so easy and fast and I can do last minute request.
