Popular social media pet blogger Barkocity recently launched a new service that connects pet owners with local pet businesses — dog walking, boarding, pet sitting, training, doggie daycare, grooming, and even vet visits. This online-ordering platform provides local business menus, prices, and reviews all in one place.

Once you find pet businesses and prices in your local area, you can book appointments and pay online, choosing services right from the business’ menu. The site includes reviews and photos from services providers. Best of all, with each order, Barkocity will donate a meal to feed a hungry dog in need. For businesses, fees start at $7.99 a month and vary depending on level of membership. The service is free for customers. For more information, visit barkocity.com.
