LocalDawgs was created under the premise of connecting busy pet owners within their local community to reduce the cost of pet care. By exchanging pet sitting instead of money, the pet owners are the pet sitters.

We’re bringing the community back together again. Watch Sarah’s interview on KGW-TV- NBC (Portland)

siblings on the go

Co-founders Sarah and Ben Tantillo are siblings on the go. Sarah was having a hard time finding someone to care for her dog, Wolfie, while she was traveling for work or when something came up last minute. It was always stressful to find a solution that didn’t cost hundreds of dollars or feel like a burden on friends.

When she realized she shared this problem with many other pet owners she decided to do something about it.

Sarah brought Ben on as her business partner and it’s been full steam ahead ever since.
