Swifto is a New York City start-up that is bringing smartphone technology to the dog walking market. Evidently not all dog walkers are created equal so Swifto is looking to provide more assurance for dog lovers. Swifto offers private dog walks with insured services. When your dog starts a walk, you get notification and gps tracking. Your dog walker will also send you photos and a message when your dog takes a poop.

Since Swifto is tracking and mapping out the walking route, the app can also calculate your pet’s average speed. So go on… schedule in some more exercise for your canine! Your app will let you know if your dog runner is actually running your pet.
