Tracking Device Proves Dog Was Walked

Many of us have busy lives so it is important at times that we get a little help with some of those household tasks that might be getting neglected. In both the suburban and city world it is common for people to hire a gardner to keep grass mowed and trees from growing over to a neighbor’s yard, or a house cleaner to give those blinds a good dusting and floors a good deep cleaning. Many of these jobs have accountability built right into them. For example, it is pretty obvious if a lawn care company or house cleaning person did not show up and do their job. Unfortunately, not all hired help can be easily checked for accountability. This is the case with people who are a little too busy and therefore hire dog walkers to get their furry loved ones some exercise. However, with the help of small live GPS trackers pet owners are offered a new way to make certain their pooches are getting walked while also knowing exactly where the dog walker went during that outing!

Live GPS Tracking: How It Works For Dog Walking

GPS monitoring devices have evolved to the point where they are small, affordable, portable and easy to use. This evolution in tracking technology has really opened up the doors to new applications such as monitoring a dog walker. How it could help a pet owner is really nothing more than a 3 part process.

  1. The pet owner requests that a dog walker carry a small GPS unit in their pocket while walking the pooch.
  2. When the dog walker takes the pooch for an outing the live locational data is transmitted to a website.
  3. The pet owner goes online with their cell phone, tablet or computer and can see where their pooch is walking!
Pet owners are not only given real time access to where their pet is at any point in time, but they can also review historical data of what paths or trails a dog walker took their pooch!
Accountability is important in every aspect of business and determining how good or bad a job hired help is doing. Before the introduction of small, on-the-go live GPS tracking devices, those people who hired dog walkers had no way to know with confidence if a) their dog was actually walked and b) how far the dog walker took the pet. GPS monitoring offers a new method of observation and accountability that has changed the way many businesses conduct operations and now the satellite technology is going to the dogs by helping pet owners!
