About us: PetPocketbook’s mission is to simplify the way we book pet care, starting with dog walking. Think of us as OpenTable + Yelp 2.0 for pet care. Our app simplifies business admin by automating things like appointment booking, schedule optimization, client database management, payment processing and messaging. Believe it or not, most operators today are still using pen and paper! For pet parents, our app offers convenience and peace of mind. We’ve launched a mobile-optimized web app as part of a closed alpha with 8 dog walkers and 150+ dogs and are working towards stabilizing the platform for a broader beta launch.
