Brian Koester: From Bricks and Mortar to High Tech Pet Industry Solutions

Jamie Migdal on Pet Life Radio

Jamie talks to Brian Koester, founder of Better Walker, about how he turned his entrepreneurial talents from his own pet care company to a software application designed to help other pet care professionals run their business more profitably and efficiently.


Fueled by a love of animals (passion) and a desire to be in control of his work-life (profession), Brian Koester started a dog walking and pet sitting company in 2003. By 2009, the business had grown to include a daycare and boarding facility, and 75 walks a day. The opportunity for growth was evident, but the daily management of the dog walking tasks was all-consuming. This led him to design Better Walker.
