Spotlight on Local Business
IT IS A DOG FRIENDLY WORLD!
One such business is DoggieSpot.com.au, a unique website creating a dog friendly world accessible to everyone.
Founded by Jet Gray who previously enjoyed a successful career in business development across creative advertising, classifieds, payment solutions and content syndication with some of Australia’s leading media companies. Jet spent the past 15 years building others’ businesses and specialised in cross-platform solutions – print, web, mobile, television and EPG. She now brings all of her significant experience to bear in her own online venture.
Starting as a blog site in April 2010 and using the benefits of social media, she built a loyal and strong following. This led to the launch of the great website – doggiespot.com.au.
DoggieSpot showcases Sydney’s guide to the friendliest locations for our pampered pooches, included cafes, parks and beaches along with the premium products and services.
“Our pets deserve a great experience too. Some cafes are more pet friendly than others,” states Jet, “when you have a mix of mum’s with babies and pet lovers, and a cafe not set up properly or welcoming, it can be chaotic or dissatisfying to everyone. We want to let the pet loving community know where the best experiences can be found around Sydney. “
In 2012 the site will launch video clips - reviews to offer a firsthand experience to the viewer.
