Can the walker take my dog off-leash?

No, Spot dog walks are on-leash only. This includes fenced-in off leash parks. Off-leash services are not insured and are not permitted due to the elevated risk of injury to a dog, injury caused by a dog, and potential loss of a dog. Even within a fenced-in off-leash dog park, a dog is more likely to injured by another dog, and is more likely to inflict injury to another dog or person. 

The only exception to the on-leash rule is within the dog owner’s backyard. When booking with Spot, you can request a backyard break instead of a walk, in which case a dog is permitted to be off leash under the direct supervision of a walker.
