My co-founder and I started this to help people find local, trustworthy dog walkers, because it was a problem I ran into and knew we could offer a better solution for.
So far we’ve grown our offline beta to 2000 interested walkers, 300 with full profiles in Los Angeles. We’ve had bi-weekly training sessions for them in the parks to make them more trustworthy and to find those that are committed. We also get them insurace: Insurance Info. Now we are setting them up with jobs and have about 100 walks going on per month. We are developing a fully featured web app to give infrastructure so we can push up those walks numbers heavily, right now we are doing it manually so can’t scale it as drastically with the two of us.
We are currently part of one of LA's top accelerators Start Engine which provides us working capital, office space, and a ton of good people to work with. We are growing fast and have an excellent team (ex googler etc.). We are incredibly passionate about this company and its mission and would love to talk with anyone who loves animals, loves creating jobs for people, or just loves working really hard on a good problem to solve.

A YC alum W'12 created our V1 so the major thing we are looking for is someone to take over ownership of further development on the V1 in short term and then be the voice of technology as we progress, owning the execution of this portion of the company.
