Dogdrop A Queer Owned Local Doggy Daycare

Dogdrop a local queer owned doggy daycare prioritizes pet wellness. 

Shaina and Greer are two queer women who founded Dogdrop in Los Angeles after seeing other successful pet care companies born and grown in L.A.

Dogdrop launched just two months before the pandemic and has been able to ride the wave of a surge in dogs that were adopted. As Los Angeles is starting to reopen, 

With life returning to a sense of normalcy and people going back to work, Dogdrop wants to make that transition for pets and owners a little easier. Dog parents can drop off their pup at Dogdrop while they go out for dinner and drinks so that their dog can work on separation anxiety that’s been induced from the quarantine.

“We are seeing an uptick of dogs with severe separation anxiety aka quarantine pups,” said Shaina, one of Dogdrop’s founders. “They are not prepared for their parents to start leaving the house, and Dogdrop provides a flexible and high-quality place for their dog to hang and work on separation anxiety. We are open M-F from 8-8, so whether dogs need all day care or just a place to get in their recreation and activity, we’re that spot.”

As female queer founders, they have surpassed the odds and have been backed by leaders in the pet care space such as Mars PetCare and the CEO of Wag! They are proud to have support of the LGBTQ+ community in Los Angeles. 

When asked what inspired them to open Dogdrop Shaina stated, “We couldn’t find dog care that worked for us. Nothing was flexible enough, clean enough, engaging enough, or cool enough, so we decided to build our own version, by reimagining dog care from the ground up.”
