Why Crowd Funding
This section is typically about use of proceeds and the funds raised are important to bringing PetziConnect to market but that's not everything behind our decision to use this resource. There are many benefits to crowdfunding but first and foremost is that we at Petzila have the opportunity during, not after, the go-to-market process to interact with our customers. Without question, both PetziConnect the product and Petzila the company will be better for your input, suggestions and feedback. Ultimately, we are about the experience that our products create between you and your pet and that experience starts right here right now. With your help and our passion to get it right we will make sure that the entire experience is a smile!

What People Are Saying
Address: 560 South Winchester Blvd., Suite 500, San Jose, CA 95128, USA.
Founded in the heart of Silicon Valley, Petzila cofounders Simon Milner and Dave Clark both recognized the benefits of technology but realized how little technology there was related to something they both loved, their pets!
One night while out to dinner chatting and sharing pictures from their smartphones they inevitably came across pictures of their pets. Next thing they knew everyone wanted to see, even total strangers. Simon turned to Dave and said, "Ya know, why can’t we introduce our pets live and in real time with our smartphones?"
The wheels started turning ...
Both being veterans of companies large and small, new and old, public and private and both having brought products from concept to market that millions are currently enjoying today, it was a good question!
They were shocked when they searched for existing solutions and found none, with the exception of the larger home security offerings touting the ability to check on your pet, which they thought was great if you were watching the video stream while your pet walked by. But where was the interactive joy in that?
There had to be a way to get their pets on the net and create a truly interactive experience with a reward, a moment of joy?
They thought...Heck if Pavlov could do it with a treat, why couldn’t we?
Many long conversations and lots of research later they both took the leap and committed full time to launcing the pet-tech revolution and creating what is now Petzila.
As an aside, the first night that Dave took home the PetziConnect initial prototype, not only did his dogs respond exactly as expected to his girlfriends voice (their real master) but upon receiving the dispensed treat the dogs were immediately hooked. Zero learning curve.
Unfortunately, upstairs Dave’s girlfriend took to the experience equally as enthusiastically. Dave literally had to go downstairs and unplug the device so that he and the dogs could get some sleep as her phone battery was showing no signs of running out. That night one of the dogs actually slept downstairs by the unit:-)
The result of over 18 months of research and developmetn is; PetziConnect - the first salvo in the pet-tech revolution and just the beginning of the vision that is Petzila.
