One of our team members was studying computer science at the university and has taken a few coding courses besides. What helped us was that other initial team members had other skill sets that were very helpful like product management and business development. The synergies between the three of us made it possible.
Knowing we are solving real problems pet owners have. We met as many dog owners and heard of their challenges. We prioritized what we heard. It became clear the pet parents' activity coordination is the biggest challenge they have so nothing falls in between the cracks. It was clear very fast we were also serving as the voice of the pet.
The interviewee, Mr. Gideon Marks, is Lynn Marks's father and one of the co-founders of DogLog. DogLog is a pet-care app that helps pet parents organize their pets’ lives. With the app, owners can track and coordinate their pets' activities and health, create reminders, analyze behavior and trends, and more. Puppy owners love that they can track growth, training, and vaccinations with DogLog. People with aging/sick dogs really value tracking their pet’s symptoms and treatments so that they can best care for their pet. DogLog was founded by a female founder, Lynn Marks, her dad, Gideon Marks, and her brother Ron Marks, who started DogLog as a family to bring a digital transformation for pet ownership.
