Does Stella need to get to doggie day care but you have an important Zoom meeting? Or maybe Baxter needs to get a pawdicure but you have to be across town?
With DuberDogs, a Houston pet taxi service, you don’t have to worry about it. DuberDogs (think Uber for dogs) will pick up and deliver your dog where it needs to go.
Unlike Uber Pet, you don’t have to ride along with your furry friend. DuberDogs Houston Pet Taxi will take care of everything for you.
About DuberDogs Pet Taxi
Entrepreneur Ron Velez got the idea for DuberDogs while managing projects for his cleaning and remodeling business. He would drive by a doggie daycare in the Heights each day. He thought that a pet taxi service would be useful for busy families that needed some help managing their doggie duties.
Ron worked with a bus broker (yes, that’s a thing) and located just what he wanted — in Portland Oregon. But it was a perfect, air-conditioned mini-bus that could stand the wear and tear of Houston traffic. A cheap SWA flight later, and Ron and two friends were driving the bus 2,300 miles back to Houston.
The bus is now retrofitted for dogs, including sturdy Ruff Land Performance Kennels attached to the floor of the vehicle. These crush-proof kennels help ensure your dog’s safety while traveling. (DuberDogs is also a local Houston dealer of Ruff Land Kennels.)
This is a much needed service for Houston pet owners. As Ron says, “Your daily schedules are hectic. Let us help out with the pets. We can deliver them to your doggie daycare, veterinarian, boarding, spa or groomer, and return them safely home.”
Ron is also focused on giving back to the Houston dog owner community as well. The bus came with signage on one side, from its previous life as a municipal bus. Ron is filling that space with “lost dog” signs from the area. Dog owners looking for a lost pet can send a flyer to Ron via DuberDogs Facebook Messenger.
