All of our dog walkers go through RCMP criminal background checks to be considered as a dog walker. We do have every walker's full name, address, phone number, copy of photo ID, and social insurance number in case of any issues; though, we've fortunately had zero issues with walkers after 80,000 dog walks completed.
Fortunately, we've never had to use any of our insurance policies because we mitigate so many risks by strictly offering private, on-leash, door-to-door walks, while only hiring about 3% of dog walker applicants.
With that being said, all Spot dog walks come with $30,000 of pet insurance and $5,000,000 of home and property insurance, with zero deductibles. Since our beginnings, we've actually never had to tap into our insurance, but we're certainly here to support you in case anything ever happens.
