Doggie mamas, stand up. While our fur babies might not be our actual babies, juggling work, play and rushing home for that 6 p.m. walk is no small feat.
Luckily, Swifto--a Manhattan dog-walking service with its very own GPS tracking app--is on it.
First, register online for regular weekday visits. A representative will reach out to note any personal needs and set up a complimentary initial meeting with your assigned walker. Then, during each day’s trip, he or she will text you at the start and at the finish, even including a heartwarming photo along the way.
Thanks to the GPS-enabled app used by the walkers, you can log in to the site and see all the details: the duration, the mapped route, where your pup ran into friends and where he took care of his business (yes, complete with the exact emoji you’re imagining).
Important to note: This is no five-dogs-on-one-leash situation. Swifto pairs one walker (insured, college-educated, vetted and trained) with one pooch at a time (starting at $20 for half an hour, payable online each month). And should you be unexpectedly stuck at the office--or just really in need of happy hour--simply schedule an on-demand walk and someone from the Swifto team will swing by to relieve Rex…and you.
