Our paper explores how consumer value is negotiated in pet-related services. We combine the discussion on value with the standpoint of service design; the approaches of consumer journey and service touchpoints. The contribution lies in discussing how consumer value is experienced in pet-related services through and by the pet, not only within dyadic interaction between consumer and service provider. We argue that applying a consumer value journey gives a comprehensive understanding of experienced value in several touchpoints with multiple service providers.
