New York, NY – The American Kennel Club® (AKC), the world’s largest purebred dog registry and leading advocate for dogs, joins forces with Rover.com, the nation’s largest network of 5-star pet sitters and dog walkers, to bring even more pet services to AKC Marketplace.
Each day, AKC Marketplace helps hundreds of potential dog owners find their life-long companions and is committed to helping them find quality pet care. Joining resources with Rover brings their trusted network of service providers to AKC’s ever-growing dog-owning audience and streamlines the process of owners finding the best 1-on-1 care for their dogs. Rover provides services ranging from pet sitting to dog walking daily.
“We’re pleased to welcome Rover to AKC Marketplace,” said Alexandra Aleskovsky, EVP and Chief Growth Officer of the AKC. “This relationship allows AKC to pair its 130-plus-years of experience with an innovative tech start-up, to continue to make AKC Marketplace the premiere place to find your canine companion, as well as a place to find a variety of services for current and potential dog owners.”
“Joining forces with the AKC allows us to bring our network of trusted sitters to a community of devoted pet owners that are looking for the best quality care for their dogs,” said Aaron Easterly, CEO of Rover. “This relationship extends our mission of making pet ownership easier by connecting current and future AKC dog owners to the perfect ‘dog people’ in their neighborhood, who will provide the quality of care AKC owners give their pets on a daily basis.”
With this new relationship, dog owners will be able to discover local Rover pet sitters and dog walkers in the AKC Marketplace.
