      About PuppySpot.com

      PuppySpot is a service committed to helping responsible breeders place their puppies with caring individuals and families in New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Dallas, and across the U.S. But, more than just a service, PuppySpot is a community of dog lovers whose mission is to make lives better by placing healthy puppies into happy homes. The PuppySpot brand, with puppies at the center, is rooted in the belief that dogs should be celebrated, and owners deserve to experience trust, confidence and transparency when searching for their new companions.

      With a screened and vetted network of responsible breeders, PuppySpot makes fetching your new best friend a simple and enjoyable experience. PuppySpot uses a personalized approach that caters to the needs of those in search of a new furry friend as well as the breeders who are looking for their puppies' forever homes. Each breeder within the PuppySpot community is held to the highest standards, with health and safety for all dogs (not just puppies) as top priorities. Following a comprehensive, proprietary screening process, less than 10 percent of breeders who begin the PuppySpot review process are invited to join the exclusive community — ensuring that both two- and four-legged friends receive a premium experience that is seamless and quality-driven.

Greg holds a BA from Stanford University, a JD from the University of Chicago, and is a graduate of Harvard Business School's Program for Management Development.
