Partnership will now bring leading video chat technology to more pet hotel pet suites, so pet owners are never far from furry friends
May 07, 2019, Minneapolis
A growing number of pet owners will soon have the ability to be on the beach in Barbados and still be able to call their beloved fur babies, have a two-way video chat, dispense treats and aromatherapy — all while pets are being boarded in a pet hotel — thanks to an expanded relationship between PetChatz and Best Friends Pet Care.
Best Friends started offering PetChatz® Greet & Treat® videophones within select hotel suites in 2016. Based on customer response and proven success, Best Friends will be adding PetChatz to new locations over the coming months.
“There’s a peace of mind that comes from knowing our pets feel secure and happy while we’re away,” said Lisa Lavin, PetChatz founder and CEO. “We created PetChatz to ease the anxiety that occurs when parents and pets are separated. Our partnership with Best Friends Pet Hotel is a perfect match because together, we give parents a trusted, reliable, one-stop solution to ensuring the comfort and safety of their pets while traveling.”
Best Friends Pet Hotel has been setting the standard in pet boarding since 1995. From fitness sessions to bedtime stories — a pet parent can design the perfect vacation for their pet. Best Friends has 30 centers and hospitals in 15 states and on site at Walt Disney World Resort.
PetChatz is an award-winning, Greet & Treat® videophone that enables pet parents to check in with their pets from anywhere, anytime via their smartphones, tablets or PCs. Parents can have two-way video chats with, dispense treats, and provide aromatherapy to their pets. The durable, pet-safe PetChatz system mounts flush to the wall over an electrical outlet or attaches to a kennel at eye-level ensuring pet safety and increasing peace of mind for the pet owner while they are away from their fur baby.
“PetChatz is an excellent complement to our state-of-the-art facilities and luxury pet suites,” said Jared Pinsker, CEO of Best Friends Pet Hotel. “The integration of PetChatz into select locations give our customers more value, convenience, and yet another way to enrich their pet’s stay at our hotels.”
PetChatz® is the founder of the “Treat Cam” category and is pioneering new technology that enables pet parents to have a physical interaction with their pets anywhere, anytime. The patented, award-winning PetChatz is a durable, pet-safe system that mounts to any wall or kennel and lets owners and their pets see each other, hear each other, and speak to each other. By clicking an icon, parents can also dispense a treat, provide a soothing aromatherapy, stream DOGTV, and record/share videos of their pets’ shenanigans.
