Your Perfect Puppy launches in New York metro area

Your Perfect Puppy, LLC, the first comprehensive dog concierge service designed specifically to assist new owners in bringing a dog into their family, is now available to residents in the New York metro area. Your Perfect Puppy provides a highly customized solution — from finding the right dog anywhere in the world, to helping new owners set up their home and buy all the necessary products, to finding the best local service providers — they do it all.

PerfectPUppy3FULLYour Perfect Puppy was founded by Barton O’Brien, a former Marine and avid dog lover who left his job at a high-powered Wall Street hedge fund to become an entrepreneur. “The first thing I did when I left my job was fly to Georgia to pick up my new puppy, Walter,” said O’Brien. Walter is a white Labrador Retriever and was a big part of the inspiration to start the business. “Finding Walter took several months. I spoke to 22 breeders before I finally found him,” O’Brien said. He also spent countless hours researching best breeding practices and every dog-related product on the market. “Once I realized how much work went into bringing a dog into my life, and doing it right, I thought, ‘there’s a business here.’”

With a checklist of more than 200 tasks, Your Perfect Puppy takes care of everything. “One problem new dog owners encounter is that they don’t know what they don’t know,” said O’Brien. “The result is that they wing it. We take the guesswork out of the process and ensure it goes smoothly for both the owner and the new puppy.”

Finding the best dog for their clients is just the beginning. Your Perfect Puppy also acts as the representative to the breeder ensuring everything is done right, helps clients pick the right puppy out of the litter, and spends time with them in their home, helping with setup, puppy-proofing and buying the supplies they need.

“Every family is different, just like every dog is different,” says O’Brien, which is why the service is customized to each client’s specific needs. “People are surprised when they realize how much work goes into getting a dog.” At Your Perfect Puppy, they will even help find the best service providers in the local area (veterinarians, dog walkers, dog trainers, etc.), pet insurance, AKC registration, vaccination schedules and local licensing — it’s all included.

For those who want to get a dog but aren’t sure what kind, Your Perfect Puppy offers a free consultation to help match potential owners to the breed that best fits their preferences and lifestyle. They developed a proprietary system that matches the answers of a 24-question survey to 19 dog characteristics across 223 breeds. The survey is available on their website.
