Too busy for walkies? Pay someone local to take the dog out and you’ll get updates and a GPS-derived route map on completion. Or offer your services and name a price — if you pass vetting (only 20% do, says Rover).
If you’d rather find a professional walker, Tailster claims to have 10,000-plus on its books. As with Rover, you get GPS updates, optional photos and insurance. You can find a dog-sitter, too, if you’re going away.
Thinking of getting a dog? Take one for a test-drive with this dating-style app, where you create a profile and wait to be ed. Borrowers pay £13 a year, owners £45, but then walkies are free.
