Dog walking customers in California can now find out exactly what time and where their dog was walked. Pet Check Technology™ is the first and only software and mobile application solution to provide both dog walking companies and dog walking customers with 100% transparency of when and where their dogs are walked.

With Pet Check Technology dog walkers simply scan a barcode when they arrive and depart their client’s home using their mobile device. Customers receive an email alert each time the barcode is scanned, and can track the walks online using GPS mapping at any time during or after the walk. The technology is available to dog walking companies to offer their clients.

According to the 2009/2010 American Pet Products Association’s National Pet Owners Survey, there are 78 million dogs in the U.S., and many of their owners work long hours and must rely on dog walking services.

“As a long-time owner of a successful dog walking company, I saw first-hand how much my clients love their dogs, so I wanted to ensure that they could be fully-confident in the dog walking that they were paying for,” said Pet Check Technology founder Doug Simon. “Pet Check Technology is thrilled to launch in the dog-devoted state of California, and we look forward to providing all dog walking customers with the peace of mind of knowing that their pets are truly receiving the care they deserve.”

Sarah Hoffmann has recently started using this new service. “I work long hours, and knowing exactly what time my dog was walked is both reassuring and helpful in planning when I have to come home from work,” said Sarah. “When my dog walker started using Pet Check Technology, going to work became a little easier because I had more control of my dog’s well-being, and it gave me peace of mind to know that my dog walker was spending the full amount of time that I paid for with my dog and that she wasn’t just walked to the corner and back.”

Pet Check Technology is the first and only business management solution combining mobile barcode technology, email alerts, GPS tracking, online scheduling and automated billing options for the dog walking business owner.

Pet Check Technology will soon be available nationwide. For more information, please go to
