Keep tabs on your pooch with this on-demand dog-walking app

Nov 13 2019, 1:44 pm

On a scale of one to 10, how much do you appreciate your four-legged friend? Our guess is a lot. They’re the first one to greet you when you walk in the door, and they’re always happy to see you (especially when you come bearing treats).

As a pet parent, you want the best for your pooch, and to have peace of mind that they’re safe when you’re at work or an event. Sadly, not many offices have a flexible pet policy, and friends won’t always be available to take Doug for a walk. But that’s not a problem when you have Spot.

Spot is Canada’s only on-demand dog-walking app, and it’s incredibly easy to use. Once you download the app and set up a profile, you can book a walk within seconds. Spot guarantees walker arrival from your location within 90 minutes — or your pup’s walk is free!

Your work schedule and life, in general, can often be unpredictable, and Spot is a surefire way to ensure your furry pal gets some refreshing walks in. Whether it’s a quick bathroom break or a mid-day walk to provide that much needed mental and physical stimulation for your pup, Spot has you covered.

One of the things we love about the app is the safety aspect. All Spot dog walkers are bonded and background-checked, and you can even set up a meet-and-greet with yours for free. All walks are GPS tracked, which gives you peace-of-mind knowing exactly when your walker arrives and allows you to see where your pup is at all times. A detailed walk report is provided at the end of each walk, complete with pictures and emojis for those potty breaks!

Think of the app like Uber for dog-walking — it lets you schedule, track, and review each walk within seconds.

During each outing, all dogs are covered by premium pet insurance, which adds another layer of assurance for you. And when it comes to paying for your dog walker’s services, you can simply do that through the Spot app — hassle-free.

Spot isn’t just your average dog-walking app. Every time you book a walk, you’ll be giving back to animals in need. That’s right, $0.10 per 10 minutes walked is donated to local animal charities and rescue shelters. So if you’ve been looking for a way to help animals less fortunate in Vancouver, this is it.

Wondering how much a Spot walk costs? One 15-minute walk costs $15, a 30-minute walk costs $20, a 45-minute walk costs $24, and an hour-long walk costs $27. If you know you’ll be using the app regularly, you can purchase a five or 10-pack of walks and save money when you do.

Need a walker on the same day, at the same time each week? Book a recurring walk and earn 10% back in Spot cash which can be applied to future walks!
