Consistent Dog Walker

If you have a set schedule you will get the same dog walker every time as well as a complimentary meet and greet. If you have a sporadic schedule we will always give priority to the previous dog walker and try to keep it as consistent as possible for you and your pup!

I'm super pleased with my experience using Swifto Dog Walking service for my pup. The features I love the most:
- complimentary meet-and-greet with the walker before they start taking your dog out
- really excellent and responsive customer service
- text updates: when the walk starts, ends, when your dog poops (haha!), a summary of the walk from the walker, and a photo of your dog on the walk
- you can watch the path of the walk from their website
- solo walks that really truly are the amount of time you pay for
- an easy-to-use calendar on their website where you can schedule and cancel walks.
I'm glad I picked Swifto and will keep using them. Recommend!

I utterly LOVE swifto and can't recommend it highly enough. They have handled my challenging and constantly changing schedule with ease. Their web interface is amazing. They send you photos and updates all along the walk. Also, they solve the age old dog walker problem and GUARANTEE by trackable GPS that your dog is walked for the amount of time you pay for. I can't recommend them more.

Swifto has been walking my stubborn bulldog for about 3 months now a few times per week, every week.
Their app and website are easy to use and they are highly responsive from scheduling our initial Meet-and-Greet to everything else that followed. I met with Daniela B., who has been the only walker for my dog since day 1! This is unique to Swifto in my experience with other dog walking services, who assigned different walkers after the Meet-and-Greet. I appreciate this about Swifto because it allows for continuity of care and the opportunity to build a relationship with Daniela, who has been quick to learn about my dog's quirks, incredibly reliable and responsible. She has always arrived within the time frame I requested to walk my dog and made herself available for dog-sitting on occasion.
I am grateful to have found Daniela and that a service like Swifto exists. Thank you for maintaining your standards in screening and selecting your walkers.

I have been using swifto to walk my dog and stay with him when I’m out of town for about a year and a half! They have the nicest walkers, great communication and I trust them with my pup. Their team is easy to get in touch with and they keep you updated with pictures and blurbs about each walk. Highly recommend using them as a regular dog walking service!

I would highly recommend Swifto to pet parents. I am the founder of a large NYC Animal Rescue, so I am in the animal business myself. Swifto was really great, and they walked my dogs for a year, before I moved from the area. We had an excellent steady walker with them for about 6 months.
She was so attentive to my babies needs, and was super reliable and professional. One of my dogs is also pretty challenging ( she has intense leash aggression) and requires to wear a muzzle for safely reasons. I felt extremely comfortable having Chris take care of her, and being extra vigilant with her.
I would recommend Swifto to anyone who is a neurotic dog parent, lol. Like me.

Swifto is truly an amazing service. We've been using them for the past month and a half, and not only are having a great experience with the walker they assigned us, but also the functionality of the online service.
It's so great getting a quick text when the walk has started or ended, when our pup has gone to the bathroom, and being able to see where he's been walked with pictures sent to us along the way. He's only 5 months old and we feel bad leaving him during the day, so it gives us peace of mind getting those updates and knowing he's enjoying his walk.
Our walker has also always sent us thorough updates after the walk, letting us know how it went, if our pup was tired/energetic/stubborn/etc. Our walker even stopped at Petco to pick up more poop bags for us when we ran out after one of the walks.
Anytime we've had questions, needed to change schedules, etc. the Swifto team has always been so responsive and easy to work with.
I can't say enough good things about Swifto, and would only ever use them for dog walking services.
Review stars 03/04/2021
I have used Swifto for around 2 years and all of the walkers at Swifto are just amazing and go above and beyond. Just one example is that for months of me healing from a severe injury they would do things like bring up packages, get me water and pickup around my apartment before they took Daisy out.
They are all very kind and great with dogs but also with humans which is a nice perk.
They also are accommodating with last minute walk requests, 9/10 times they can make it happen.
They are also better than I am at suiting dogs up in weather gear (booties, coats, etc) which is helpful.
Best dogwalking service I have used. The most frequent walkers I have had lately are Gerald, Susan and Daisy. They are all fantastic.
