Many people dreaming of owning a dog cannot have one, for one reason or another. On the other hand, many dog owners need a helping hand every once in awhile. If your work requires you to travel a lot and your parents are taking more and more time to answer your messages about “their furry grandchildren coming to visit their grandparents”, you might want to consider other options. This is why Dogia Oy was founded in 2010. It connected dog owners to the volunteers willing to take care of their furry friends.
The volunteers, called “godparents”, had many different roles. Some took their god-dog for a walk. Others kept it company during a long day. Some people hosted the pet while their owners were traveling around the globe. The owners felt comfortable leaving their dog in the hands of a familiar face. Later on, Dogia Oy created a database of pet-friendly service providers, which makes it a one-stop shop for dog-lovers.
A while back, Host My Pet acquired Dogia Oy, making it a part of us. Dogia Oy’s volunteers (welcome aboard!) now have an opportunity to host and take care of pets other than just dogs. We at Host My Pet know how important and valuable it is to find a trustworthy host for your pet. Many of the Dogia Oy volunteers already have pet hosting experience, which makes them a wonderful addition to our services.
