DENVER BUSINESS JOURNAL - Finding a safe place for your best friend when you head out-of-town may get a bit easier for Denver area homeowners.

Rover.com Thursday will begin offering the Denver market Rover Premier, which combines customer service with Rover's online community that connects dog-owners to pre-approved sitters.

Seattle-based Rover.com announced the Rover Premier service as part of its acquisition of Phoenix-based Sleepover Rover, an online pet-boarding service. Denver will be the first market to receive Rover Premier.

"Through the acquisition of Sleepover Rover we are able to launch Rover Premier, allowing us to offer that high-level service and meet the needs of more pet parents," said Rover.com CEO Aaron Easterly.

Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
