Countdown to the 2019 Client Showcase: #6

DogSpot - NYSBDC: Brooklyn SBDC – New York (
SBDC Advisor: Robert Piechota.

DogSpot makes high-tech, pay-per-use dog houses that sit on sidewalks outside of stores where dogs aren’t allowed. DogSpot has a national network of these safe and cozy sidewalk sanctuaries, aiming to give the 80 million U.S. dogs and their owners a way to spend more time together without needing to worry about logistics or safety. We’re also proud to offer a unique opportunity to the 57% of retail and food establishments that otherwise cannot accommodate customers who are running errands with their dogs.
