Ratings and Reviews
Great walkers and app
I have been using spot for over 2 years. I have a regular walker once a week and depending on my schedule I will sometime request a ASAP walk or schedule several walks when I am away on vacation . I love the fact I can see reviews of walkers I am considering using , I can view exactly where the walker took my dog, the distance covered and the total time they were on a walk.
If I have ever had questions about the app the administrator responds really quickly.
All the walks are on leash with just my dog.
The App needs A LOT of work
Some feed back from a frequent UAT’er.
The colour scheme for “confirmed and pending” is not clear to a new comer. Your trying to haul people in and make them want to use the app. So the first booking has to be very easy and I was so confused that I just had to send a request out to the population and not be able to directly message someone, or even see how many dogs they have in there schedule in the next few weeks.
It was hard to message a person directly. I read some profiles and wanted to message them to see how they felt about a 100lb dog and what there schedule was like, but it wasn’t clear how into do that. “Book walks” was the only thing I seen and it was not what I wanted to do right away, I wanted to make sure she was ok with a huge dog First. I also wanted to choose someone in my neighbourhood instead of someone a few Kms away, for many reason
You should be able to set a time frame that is longer then one hour for an arrival of a walk. I honestly don’t care if they come in a specific hour, I just need them there within. 2-4 hour time window while I’m at work. It should be based off of there schedule from there. If someone wants a tighter schedule they can set it that way.
The walker should be able to propose different times. I’m not sure if that’s not already in the app though.
When I messaged a walker, my iPhone allowed me to click “done” from the keyboard but this made the app freeze and I had to retype everything and this time be sure to click spots “send mail icon” key instead of my iphones “done” key.
When a walker accepted my request, it took 4 minutes for the app to show me this, despite getting a push notification saying that a walker selected the request.
I really didn’t like that I can’t see who is ok with boarding over night. I’d like a long time walker to become friends with my guy and be ok with a night or two of boarding each year, and that was VERY unclear. I was not going to just send my request out to the world without seeing someone’s profile.
I’m also not sure on the walkers side of things. Can they see my address and my breed of my dog in the request? Therefore everyone gets this requeSt and can see that I have a pure breed alone looking to be walked? That’s not cool either.
Hope this helps with app improvements.
Best dog walking app out there
This app is a life saver. I was stressing about getting a puppy and finding this app was a huge weight off my shoulders. Ive had a few consistent dog walkers that I absolutely love and completely trust with my energetic, quirky, golden retriever. Admin is very quick to send a replacement if there is ever an emergency cancellation and the replacement walkers are equally as good as her regular walkers. The rates are extremely reasonable too. This is the perfect solution to working pet owners!!
