BarkBox is a cool new startup that offers a subscription service for dog owners. They recently announced a $5M raise and with it change the name to Bark & Co and ponied up $19,532 for the domain name Bark.co. With the new raise and new home on the web they also announced a new service called Bark Care offering customized veterinary services.
Bark.com seems to be run by another startup still in it’s early phases but it doesn’t look like they are doing anything remotely similar. I think this was a good branding move made by Bark, .CO has become increasingly popular with startups and this is easy to remember, easy to spell, and directly matches their brand which is Bark & Co.
Congrats to the whole team on the $5M raise, and as a cat-owner I’m still waiting for my MeowBox, I see Meow.co is listed at BuyDomains for $9,600 which would be a $10,000 savings for whoever wants to start Meow & Co 🙂
