Spot Dog Walking FAQ’s
How do you ensure the safety of my dog and home?
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.
How does the dog walker get into my house?
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.
Can I have the same walker every time?
Yes! Ongoing walks with the same walker are called Recurring Walks and are the best value with up to 20% savings. Recurring walks occur at the same time, on the same weekday, with the same walker, on a weekly ongoing basis, for example: M, W, F between 11:00-1:00 with Nicole. You can cancel individual walks out of the recurring scheduled if you need, whether it’s a stat holiday, you’re home sick, or just don’t need a walk that day. You are only charged for walks that occur, not walks that are scheduled.
Who are the dog walkers and how do you screen them?
Spot dog walkers are all local animal lovers looking to spend a little more time with their favorite 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.
Can the walker handle my dog?
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.
Can I meet a walker first?
Spot offers unlimited FREE meet-and-greets for customers requesting a “Recurring Walk.” Recurring walks occur at the same time, on the same weekday, with the same walker, on a weekly ongoing basis, for example: M, W, F between 11:00-1:00 with Nicole. For those who do not need a recurring walk but would still like to meet a few nearby walkers, we offer $12 meet-and-greets to ensure the walker is compensated for 15-minutes of their time and commute.
