In this episode of Founders Couch for The Fueled Collective, Caroline McCarthy, Founder of Jumping Fox, interviews Matt Meeker, the co-founder of Barkbox, New York City's fastest growing subscription ecommerce service (for dogs!).

In this video, we also meet Hugo, Meeker's 200 pound Great Dane who is something of a company mascot. However, he's not the only one. The 30-person dog-friendly Barkbox team all bring their pooches into the office for product testing.

Since its launch in December 2011, Barkbox has has hit a $25 million revenue run rate, averaging $2 million in revenue per month from its 100,000 subscribers who pay between $19 and $29 per month for the boxes.

To seed its future growth, Barkbox recently picked up $6.7 million in venture backing. Watch the interview here:
