Love this app..


I have been using this app for over a year now. I love that my walking my dogs or other dogs is benefiting a shelter that I support. I also am a Dog walker and I find it beneficial to the owners of the dogs that I walk to see an actual map of our walk. I have experienced the app just shutting down and not having recorded the entire walk. Which can be frustrating. Another concern is that there is no information given that I can find on what or when my shelter or any other shelter receives from WalkForADog. I like to know how my local shelter is benefiting from my walking and how other shelters are doing. Also if there are others that are walking for the same shelter.



Good app. I enjoy the walk tracking information and knowing that I am helping a shelter. That is the reason I use this over other walk tracking apps. It would be nice to see the actual benefit we are providing to our shelters. Only major complaint is that the app often neglects to record our whole walk. I haven't been able to discern any pattern to why it stops but it often does. Its a bummer when I enjoy the satisfaction of knowing how far I walked (I often change my route on a whim so I don't know the actual miles); and I feel it takes away from my charity that way.

Wonderful Idea


This is a great cause and awesome way to encourage dog owners to stay active. I agree with other reviews in that a running total of how much money has been donated to the local shelter is a needed addition. Contacting the shelter regularly to check is cumbersome as a user. Since people are usually skeptical of any “free” thing claiming to donate money to a good cause (myself included), having easily accessible monetary stats would likely increase the app’s popularity. I just got the app and have not experienced any issues so far (will update if I do) 🙂🐶
