Dog Walking When You Need It
Discover Canada’s Latest Dog Walking Solution
You’ve Probably Felt these 3 Common Pain-Points as a Dog Owner
With full-time jobs, it’s hard to get your pup all it’s exercise
Abbie, 36 (Calgary, AB)
For Abbie, the moment she finishes her 9-5 job at Deloitte, she’s gassed. Finally powering down her laptop, she hopes to catch up on cooking — or just plain relax; yet, Abbie’s pup (wound-up with energy all morning and afternoon) thinks the end of her work day means it’s time for playing! That’s why Abbie needs help with dog walking.
Nicole, 28 (Toronto, ON)
Meet Nicole, and her 4 year-old frenchie, Fred. To reconnect with old friends, Nicole started going to hot yoga every Saturday morning; what’s the issue? Each time Nicole shuts the door to leave her apartment, her pup whines and cries, and leaves a mess for her to return to. It’s gotten to the point where Nicole feels guilty about having a social life because her can’t leave her side. Nicole hopes to find help in getting Fred more exercise while she’s gone each Saturday.
David, 32 (Vancouver, BC)
Lastly, this is David. Being a self-employed electrician, David often has to unexpectedly work late on the job, or drive to sites in North Vancouver or Surrey to meet clients and give quotes. Whenever he’s out for more than 3 hrs at a time, David feels a mixture of guilt and anxiety, worrying his pup is desperately holding her bladder or barking uncontrollably. That’s why David hopes to find an on-call dog-walking service so his pup can go outside, even just for 15 minutes while he’s gone.

Real Users, Real Reviews
Spot has been a lifesaver for my two high energy dogs. The quality of walkers has been so great and the app is super user friendly, and the lockbox system works really well.
Q: Do I have to be home for the walker to walk my dog?
No, you don’t have to be at home. We’ll give you a free lockbox, where you can leave a key. From there, the walker can access your house and meet your dog.
Q: What if the walker breaks or steals anything from my house?
Certainly, there’s a level of trust involved; however, as long as your property and belongings doesn’t exceed $5 million dollars in value, your house and belongings are 100% insured with zero deductible which you have to pay in case of theft or damage.
Q: How can I trust the walker will be safe, kind & attentive to my dog?
You can fully get to know your dog walker by not only reviewing their profile (on the Spot app), where you’ll see their experience, but also by doing a meet-and-greet, should your walker be available to chat with you.
We completely understand your dog is family, which is why we do everything in our power to ensure safety and reliability. Not only are our walkers fully background checked, but all walks are private and on-leash; moreover, your dog is insured up to $2 million dollars, in case any accidents (such as a sprained leg) require vet attention. Please know that in over 12,000 walks, we’ve very fortunately never been faced with an injured dog.
However, should any accidents occur, we’ll be on-call and ready to help you in any way possible, such as driving over to help your dog on-site and in-person.
Q: How long are the dog walks?
You can choose from four options: 15min, 30min, 45min, and 60min walks.
Q: How much do the dog walks cost?
For single, one-off walks, pricing begins at $16. However, you can save up to 10% by purchasing packages (of 5 or 10 walks), and you can save an additional 10% by purchasing recurring walks. So, even though our pricing starts at $16 per single walk, you can save up to 20% after you feel comfortable with the service.
Note: you’ll automatically receive a 50% discount on your first walk upon downloading the Spot app today.
Q: What happens if the walker arrives late?
In case your walker arrives even 1min late, please let us know (via the in-app support chat, or via phone, or email) and you can have that walk for free.
Q: Can I schedule a single or recurring dog walk in the future?
Yes, not only are we an on-demand (or, on the “Spot”!) dog walking service, but you can also schedule a walk for the future.
You can also schedule recurring walks on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
