DENVER – Dog owners in Denver have a new option for making sure their pooch gets exercise when they’re not home.
Rover.com recently expanded its new Quick Match dog-walking feature to the Mile High City. Quick Match allows a dog owner to be instantly matched up with someone who can take their dog for a walk, either within the hour or later. All dog walkers have to go through a background check and safety education.
“We know some dog owners simply don’t have the time to search for the perfect walker, so we’ve created a set of rigorous review procedures t ogive pet owners peace of mind,” Rover COO Brent Turner said.
Owners can keep track of their dog’s walk with the “Rover Card” feature, which displays a GPS map of the walk and information on how many times the dog had to stop to go to the bathroom.
Rover started offering dog walking services two years ago and the app has since become the most-downloaded dog walking app in the country, the company said. The app’s network of dog walkers numbers more than 120,000 nationwide.
