DogTrekker.com officially opened 10/2010
Why did you start this business?
“DogTrekker.com was launched as a collaborative effort by a team of dog lovers who wanted to share what they’ve learned during over 200 combined years of on-the-road and on-the-trails adventures. They were frustrated by the lack of local and accurate listings and engaging stories about where to go, stay, eat, hike, splash and have lots of safe and fun tail-wagging’ fun with their pups!”
What makes your business different than other Dog Businesses? Do you have a USP Unique Selling Proposition?
“We are different because we focus on the state of California to stay accurate. Dog-friendly books are outdated the day they are published, and those national and international dog-friendly websites have trouble staying current, local and fresh by trying to cover too much territory. All 8,000 California listings on DogTrekker.com are updated each year.”
Business owner Dave Kendrick Replied.
