Some 68% of U.S. households, about 85 million families, own a pet according to a survey by the American Pet Products Association. In 2017, $69.51 billion was spent on pets, including more than $6 billion on services like boarding and grooming.

    When those 85 million pet owners hit the road, they basically have two choices. Take their pet with them, or board it, essentially getting someone else to take care of it. (This is not just a leisure travel issue; millions of business travelers need to make arrangements for pets as well.)
