Los Angeles: ZINGY LAUNCHES DOG VALET “DASH STANDS” AT POPULAR FARMERS’ MARKETS AND SHOPPING CENTERS

On-Demand App-Based Dog Walking Service Zingy Expands to Convenient Location Service with DASH Stands
LOS ANGELES – May 18, 2015 – Zingy™, the app-based on-demand personal dog walking service, today announced an expansion of its existing service – Introducing DASH Stands, valet stands for dog owners. DASH Stands will be available at select farmers’ markets, shopping centers and office complexes beginning Saturday, May 23.
Unlike the traditional Zingy model, where the walker comes to your home, office or public location, dog owners just open the app when they’re near a DASH Stand and immediately arrange a walker. Service starts on the spot, while owners shop, dine or continue with their workday.
Put simply, you shop (dine or work) doggy-free while Zingy walks. DASH walks are available in shorter increments than the standard Zingy service to better convenience owners. DASH Stand users can choose from 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes and Zingy will notify owners via their phone when the walk is complete. If owners spend a little too long shopping, finishing off their meal or wrapping up a meeting, the dog will stay in safe hands until it is collected.
“DASH Stands enrich the lives of pet owners by enabling them to bring their dog(s) to the workplace and other public locations where it was previously difficult,” said Tobi Skovron, CEO of Zingy. “Farmers markets and shopping centers are the perfect locations to launch this program, because Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego residents love both – fresh produce and shopping trips. It’s improper to tie a dog somewhere or leave it at home – DASH Stands make the excursion that much more enjoyable for everyone.”
Zingy will be at select farmers’ markets, office complexes and shopping centers on a daily basis beginning May 23. The first deployment of DASH Stands includes 10 CCFM farmers markets located throughout the Greater Los Angeles, area as well as several shopping centers and large campus work complexes.
Tuesdays:
Sherman Oaks (3 p.m. – 8 p.m., 14006 Riverside Dr.)
Wednesdays:
Grand Farmers’ Market, Downtown (10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 350 South Grand Ave.)
Pershing Square, Downtown (10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 532 S. Olive Street)
Miracle Mile (11 a.m. – 3 p.m., 5700 Wilshire Blvd.)
Thursdays:
Century City (11 a.m. – 3 p.m., 1800 Avenue of the Stars)
Saturdays:
Calabasas (8 a.m. – 1 p.m., 23504 Calabasas Rd.)
Sundays:
Brentwood (9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., 741 Gretna Green Way)
Melrose (10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 8400 Melrose Ave.)
Pacific Palisades (8 a.m. – 1 p.m., 1037 Swarthmore Ave.)
Larchmont (10 a.m. – 2 p.m., 209 N. Larchmont Blvd.)
If you’re interested in having a DASH Stand at your office, shopping center, gym or farmers’ market in Los Angeles, Orange Country or San Diego you can request it via the Zingy website – other cities coming soon!
The free Zingy app is available in both the iTunes and Google Play app stores. The DASH Stands in-app option will launch later this week, and the Zingy dog-walking service for users in their homes or businesses is available now.
Walkers at DASH Stands are required to have extensive Zingy Academy training, and the Zingy service is covered by a multimillion-dollar insurance policy.

Dog--Friendly Big Bear Lake

Big Bear Lake sits in the mountains only a two hour drive from Los Angeles. But it could be a world away.

The actual population of Big Bear is 5,000 people, however, over 100,000 may be here on some weekends per year. Big Bear Lake is located at 6,752 foot elevation which explains it winter snow and mild summers. Big Bear City is the center of commerce on Big Bear Lake but many of the resorts and activities are surrounding the lake at other areas.

Dog-Friendly Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara, the Queen of the California Missions, was founded in 1786. The current Mission was built in 1812 after an earthquake destroyed the last one. There was a large earthquake in 1925 and the entire center of town had to be rebuilt. It is now almost entirely a Mediterranean architecture. Santa Barbara has been a paradox for dog lovers. Most locals think it is dog-friendly, while visitors have their doubts. Due to a political "situation" Santa Barbara for many years was the main holdout in California about allowing dogs on outdoor patios. Recently this problem has been relaxed and dogs can find patio dining here as well as in the rest of the state. In addition, the beaches of Santa Barbara are not as pet-friendly as those south of here in Ventura County, but they are more pet-friendly than the beaches of Los Angeles 90 miles to the south. Today, Santa Barbara is dog-friendly in most respects.

Dog-Friendly Anaheim - Orange County California

Anaheim is to the West Coast what Orlando is to the East Coast. The vacation hub known for the major theme parks is, however, really part of Los Angeles as there is no separation between the cities 40 miles apart. If there were no signs you would not be able to tell where one city begins and another ends. Anaheim is in Orange County with a population of 3 million people. Dogs are not allowed in the Anaheim theme parks but they do have day kennels to board dogs in while you attend. More dog-friendly destinations are nearby Orange County cities Huntington Beach and Newport Beach.

Dog-Friendly California Wine Country

Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley encompass the area known as "Wine Country" in California. The California wine industry was launched in the Sonoma Valley in 1823 when grapes were first planted. In 1857 Hungarian Count Agoston Haraszthy created the first big vineyards here. He is now known as the "Father of California Wine". An interesting historical fact is that in Sonoma a band of farmers captured the controlling Mexican General in 1846 and declared California an independent republic. 25 days later the United States annexed California. Napa Valley now boasts over 250 wineries and Sonoma Valley adds scores more. Many of the wineries in both valleys are dog-friendly and some have dog mascots and dogs that greet visitors and visiting dogs.
