They have finally arrived…
An ardent pet lover like me always finds it difficult to take my cute Pug along to many places we go and one from the family has to always sacrifice the vacation for the pet. Also out pet is deprived of the good times he could otherwise enjoy with us. So he puts up a gloomy face with his prizes around him and gives us this look…
But not anymore….CollarFolk is a one month old startup from Delhi that helps pet parents go on an enjoyable and comfortable vacation with their pet. It is a one-stop solution to everything a pet parent would need and want to know as they plan and book a pet friendly vacation.
Travelling with pets in India is a relatively new concept, it being possible mostly if you have your own accommodation up the hills or down the coast. Today, Indians are only just exploring the idea.. CollarFolk has good news. A Pet friendly holiday in India is now an absolute reality and something that is becoming incredibly easy to plan. CollarFolk is happy to be a part of this change in our country, where they are now facilitators of the ideal vacation – one where pet parents can take the entire family, including their beloved pet! With a comprehensive list of pet-friendly resorts, hotels and homestays to choose from, and all the guides and information for a stress free pet vacation, CollarFolk helps make the dream holiday come true.
CollarFolk was started by Rukmini Vaish who is a pet parent herself. Like every other pet parent, she faced this dilemma when planning a holiday, “where will I leave Kiki?” This got her researching properties that welcome pets and to her surprise there were quite a few. A couple of vacations with Kiki and she knew that every pet family would love this! Voila – CollarFolk was born.
