"Arash is such an amazing person! I was scared about Winters barking at him or biting him as she usually does with strangers, but she had the time of her life! I'm glad I chose to get the app. He gives me a summary of how her walk went when she gets dropped off and it makes me feel like she's in great hands and is giving the attention she needs. Her walk went so well I will now do an hour! "
