DogVacay Scholarship

DogVacay started as an answer to an unmet need. Back in 2012, our CEO Aaron Hirschhorn and his wife began offering pet sitting in their own home—after a stressful and expensive kennel stay for their dog, Rocky. Customer interest and bookings grew, and they quickly realized the potential for DogVacay. Many successful startups have begun in a similar way: By providing a unique solution to an existing problem. With this contest, we want you to harness that kind of entrepreneurial spirit. The winner will receive a $3,500 scholarship and a one-on-one session with our CEO. (So get your questions ready.)
