Los Angeles-based startup Bark’N’Borrow has a smartphone application to connect people who want to take care of a dog for a few hours. Users can set up a profile and then sift through pictures and descriptions of nearby dogs. These sorts of meetups are free, but the company also helps owners find professional sitters.
