Mitch Farrow, founder and CEO of a very unique dog day care center in New York City, The Spot Experience, offers an array of unique services to pet owners.
Offering daily care for dogs only, there is an outside area for dogs to run along with cage-free boarding overnight, grooming, behavioral training, and dog walking services.
The concierge services of The Spot Experience will set up vet appointments for owners along with offering shuttle services to transport dogs to and from day care.
The need arose for dog day care in Marrow’s life when he needed to board his over 200-pound St. Bernard and 165-pound Bullmastiff. He decided to start his own day care for dogs with a luxury experience. They recently opened their second Upper West Side location at 72nd and Columbus. This location boasts the largest on-site outdoor dog park in New York City.
Marrow shared, “I lived in (New York City), I’m working 13 to 14 hours a day. I was dying to find a place to bring these dogs to let them socialize with peace of mind when I leave them. I went to an array of dog day care places. I could not comfortably leave my dogs with them.” Marrow now lives in Westchester with his family.
Marrow plans to expand the business and hire up to 500 people. He states that New York City is one of the most dog-friendly cities in the world, and people want a safe top-tier environment when they cannot be with their pets. Some of his celebrity clients include includes Mariah Carey, Glenn Close, and Kelly Ripa.
“The industry is very hot and it’s growing, and it’s developed the high-end service of the business. But the safety and the professionalism is a very new thing,” Marrow reported.
