All walkers are insured & background-checked, with only 5% of applicants being approved on average.

2. Schedule Your Spot Dog Walk

After downloading the app and adding your pup's profile, you can submit 3 types of walk requests throughout the Spot Dog Walker network: (a) ASAP walks within 90min, (b) scheduled walks, (c) or recurring walks, in which you can save an additional 10%.

3. Choose Your Spot Dog Walker

Upon submitting your walk request, available Spot walkers near you will respond with their availability. You get to choose your preferred dog walker from the list of responders, based on their ratings and profile.

4. Await Your Chosen Dog Walker

If you have electronic keypad entry, a lockbox (which we can provide), or a spare key, your Spot Dog Walker can walk (and feed or play) with your dog, and you don't have to be at home! Spot guarantees $5,000,000 of home insurance and $30,000 of pet insurance.

5. Get Notified, With Live GPS

With every dog walk, enjoy Spot's famous customer support; ask questions 7 days-a-week, with immediate response times. We honor the trust you grant us with your beloved puppy, and return it with the best service we can muster.

6. Get Saveable Videos From Your Pup's Walk

With every paw-step, your dog's walk is GPS-tracked, so you can watch your walker's route, plus where your dog poos and pees!

Your walker also snaps photos and videos of your dog(s), so you don't have to miss out while you're at work or at home.

7. Save Time And Keep Your Dog In Good Health

Whether it's your dog's digestive tract, joint health, or weight, regular dog walking is good for their physical and mental health. Spot helps dog parents live their lives, while ensuring their dogs are healthy and active.
