Careers inspired by our furry friends

Out-U-Go! Top Top Dog, David Lipschultz, featured in national Tails Inc. Magazines.

Most of us have, at one point or another, fantasized about walking into our boss’s office Monday morning and offering our resignation. But a growing number of entrepreneurs who felt guilt and sadness because Rover wasn’t welcome in their cubicles have turned their frustration into success by changing careers and starting animal-oriented businesses.

“I had been running with my own dog for two years and loved seeing how happy he was to run. The light bulb went off at a time when I was unhappy with work life, and I heard someone complain about their dog walker,” remembers David Hill, owner of Chicago Dog Runner. Several months later, Hill quit his job as an insurance salesman to start his business, which takes dogs on long runs along the Chicago lakefront every day while their guardians toil away at their desks.

According to the 2007–2008 National Pet Owners Survey, 63 percent of U.S. households have a pet, equating to 71.1 million homes spending a total of $43.2 billion on domesticated animals. The American Pet Products Association, Inc. predicts that pet guardians will spend $45 billion on their furry friends in 2009.

So who are these entrepreneurs making all those billions of dollars? Are they big businesses with million-dollar marketing budgets, or are they Mr. and Mrs. Jones, who just really love walking neighborhood dogs for $10 an hour? The answer is both and everything in between.

After years of working in veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and even driving a horse-drawn carriage, I realized that my true passion was working with and around animals and their people. In 1996, I founded one of the country’s largest pet-sitting companies, and […]

Out-U-Go! becomes instant hit with Tokyo tweens

Out-U-Go! is featured on the very hip trendspotting site JoshSpear.com:

When I was in college, a lot of my friends went through that ‘I want a dog’ stage. I never could understand why young, jet-set people would ever want to get a dog. Who is going to take care of the dog when you leave town? Answer: their friends without dogs who chose not to get their own dog because they had the foresight to realize the difficulties that come along with being a pet owner who is frequently away from the house; funny how that works.

Enter boutique pet care company Out-U-Go. Out-U-Go is leading the way toward a workable situation for on-the-go pet owners, by providing professional, detailed services like daily dog walks ($15 for 25 min. walk), kitty care, house sitting, vacation care, and critter care. A state of the art computer system allows Out-U-Go to service more clients in a given day, and provides flexibility by giving clients the capability to add, cancel, or change their reservations online or by phone.

Out-U-Go currently operates in Chicago, IL, Oak Park, IL, and Denver, CO– but look for them to expand to a city near you soon.
