Detailed Description

Update

While building custom website for clients under the name One Match Fire, founder/CEO Ted Rheingold launched an online network for dog owners: Enter Dogster. Without any external funding, Dogster was launched in early 2004 by Rheingold and his team of passionate dog lovers (sister site Catster was launched only 7 months later). Soon after it went cash flow positive and after only 18 months it became profitable. With a pet population of over 700,000 (including catster) Dogster and Catster have clearly become a heaven on earth for pet owners. Users make profiles of their dogs through which they can share everything from pictures, video and old stories to more serious things such as expert guidance, authoritative advice and community support.
