Running Errands the Dog Friendly Way – #SBDC Client Showcase

DogSpot (| @DogSpot)
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.

“The Brooklyn SBDC team has supported us since day 1 – since we built the very first DogSpot dog house in a garage in Brooklyn. Their advocacy helped us win our first grant from the Brooklyn Public Library, which helped us launch the business. They continue to support us over two years later as we tackle complicated sidewalk regulations at home.” — Chelsea Brownridge, CEO, DogSpot
