*WoofTrax maps your walks so that you know which trails are the best depending on your available time.
*Share your walks on social media and encourage others in your community to get out and walk their dogs to earn support for animal charities in your community.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Bug fixes. Faster app loading. We streamlined the app start up experience to get you walking even faster. Pet Hero and winning walk notifications no longer load at start up but can always be viewed by tapping the Trophy Icon.
New: Earn points for each walk to reach higher levels. The higher your WoofTrax level, the greater your chance of earning a winning walk and an instant donation for your chosen animal charity.

Ratings and Reviews
Not very user friendly -and what are points for?
The new version of this app is not easy to use. You have to really be sure you click through the layers to both start and stop a walk. And the “ history” is now useless. I am not sure what it’s supposed to be showing. Plus, all of a sudden, there are “points” showing on the home screen. What are these for? I emailed the company not, of course, got no reply.
Developer Response ,
We just released a new version of the app that addresses many reported concerns. We hope that you will give that a try, and please email us with any concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
Also please know its not the miles but the number of people actively walking for your selected organization that determines donations. So sharing the app helps tremendously. We show active walkers on the impact tab of the app.
What have you done
My wife and I used to use the old version religiously it worked every time and it was seamless. Now that they’ve updated it it is absolutely atrocious it never works and it’s always crashing and it’s always freezing it’s at a point where it’s a waste of time as you want to do is generate a little money for charity organizations and you can’t even use the app to do it.I figured out another bug...why would you need to be on WiFi in order to start a walk? Makes no sense...if I take my dogs to the woods there isn’t any WiFi so I can’t walk for a dog. Hate that you tried to fix something that wasn’t broken and now it’s broken.
So what’s up with the enhanced speed this app shows for the walking speed?! It says I’m walking over 4 miles an hour and I can guarantee that’s not the case. My fastest pace (and that’s darn near a jog for me) is 3.7, so a casual walk shouldn’t show me going over 4 mph. 🤔 I’m hoping this is just a bug with the app that will be cleared up with an update. Believe me, I’d like to get that much of a workout walking, but it’s quite a stretch
