Our co-founders, Luke Silverman and Jeff Kurtzman, started putting the idea together in 2018 after Luke had visited multiple dog bars and found the idea compelling, but wanted to add his own twist with the retail component. They used some personal funds to get the business off the ground, and then started fundraising in the fall of 2019.
After a couple successful rounds of fundraising they were able to open their first location in Bethesda, Maryland in February 2021. Since then they have exponentially grown the team and are looking to expand all over the Mid Atlantic region. In May 2022 they opened their second location in Baltimore, Maryland and are looking to open their Philadelphia location in the coming year.
