Our Story | ProPet Software Inc.


Because we're kennel owners too.

ProPet Software Inc. is an Ottawa-based software company focused on delivering a high performance business solution for the pet industry. Founded by Debbie Moffat, a dog kennel owner who became frustrated with the problems her own business faced on a daily basis, we understand the needs of the modern pet professional. We strive to provide a platform that you love, paired with a business ethic you can trust. Our cloud-based kennel management software consistently meets the growing demand from professionals in the pet care business who are looking for a reliable and streamlined online booking solution for their boarding and daycare facilities. We are proud to say that ProPet's features are optimized to fit your business needs with a customizable system that fits most business pricing models.


We are passionate about entrepreneurship and believe in helping pet professionals optimize their businesses for growth and success. We're in the business for the same reason you are; we love pets! We want to help you achieve your business goals by providing you with the tools you need to succeed. ProPet was created by a team of highly dedicated and enthusiastic developers, designers, and marketers who work with Debbie on a daily basis to address what a real pet facility wants and needs in a software.
