LAS VEGAS — In the Pacific Northwest, people love their dogs. The stereotypical Seattle office, with its jeans-and-a-T-shirt dress code and pooches roaming the hallways, is just one of many ways that the PNW shows its laid back, animal-loving culture.
But what about the rest of the country? Seattle-based Rover — which provides “pet parents” with services like dog walking and daycare — is hoping other cities are just as into dogs as it’s hometown, and they are out to spread the word about pet-focused tech at this year’s CES in Las Vegas.
GeekWire’s John Cook caught up with Leah Almeling, Rover public relations manager, to talk dog care tech, the future of wearables for canines, and what the company hopes to get out of its trip down south.
