Give the dog a phone – track your pooch using GPS with Swifto
Manhattan-based dog walking service Swifto lets you track your pooch's route using GPS tech and a mobile app.
The dog walker even logs your dog's, er, logs – noting when and where your pooch relieves themselves on the map. If you feel you need to know that sort of thing.
Pricing starts at US$20 per walk – hopefully someone will bring this to the UK soon.
