Spot was founded in Calgary, Canada, and still hosts Spot's HQ!
Today, Spot is in 4 cities, Calgary, Toronto, Edmonton, and Vancouver as well as surrounding areas
Spot plans to be in all Canadian cities as we build our community of dog owners and walkers across the country.
We are always looking for new cities to expand into! If we don't serve your city, send us a request and your's might be the next city!
To ensure your dog gets the one-on-one attention they deserve, Spot dog walks are all private, on-leash, door-to-door, and GPS tracked, which means no groups, no off-leash parks, and no time spent in vehicles, period! Spot's dog walkers are background checked and every walk comes with premium pet and property insurance with veterinary coverage of $30,000 and home & property coverage of $5 Million.
We supply key lockboxes that are used to store an extra set of keys/fob. The lockbox can be fastened outside of your house or building and you can share the lockbox code with the walker ahead of their arrival. While the lockbox is the most common means of entry, some condo owners prefer to buzz the walker up, and some homeowners share their door code with the walker or even hide a key somewhere on their premises.When downloading the Spot app, you will be asked whether you would like to order a lockbox. However, if you missed this prompt, there is a section in the dropdown menu titled “Order a Lockbox.” When requesting your first walk, you will be asked to provide your entry information, which will be shared with the walker ahead of their arrival.
Spot dog walkers are all local animal lovers looking to spend a little more time with their favourite four-legged friends. Many Spot walkers are retirees or individuals actively pursuing careers in animal welfare. We accept less than 5% of walker applicants; approved walkers have all passed an RCMP criminal background check and are insured under Spot’s insurance policy.
Spot Dog Walkers all have the ability to see the pup profile before accepting a walk, we encourage our walkers to only accept walks inside there comfort zone. As long as you filled out your pup profile with necessary information you will be connected with a capable walker.
