Scout for Pet Parents Mobile App Review
I had my first experience using theScout for Pet Parents App this week. It was nothing short of awesome! The new scheduling app makes it easy to set up appointments for my cat, July, and to select the services I need from my local pet sitting company.

I found out last minute that I had to travel to a job-site this week. It took about 30 seconds to schedule and confirm an appointment for my cat. I had already set up my profile and billing information right in the app so all I had to do was go to the calendar, select a date and time, go through the checklist and within seconds I was set up with a customized cat sitting appointment. I was even able to leave special instructions right in the pet profile regarding what type of food to serve. A little while later, the appointment was approved and I received a confirmation.
I have been using my local pet sitter for a couple of years, but the new Scout app really streamlined the process for a busy person like me. It's hard enough to schedule transportation and lodging when an impromptu meeting pops up. Scout gives me peace of mind that arranging pet care while I'm away will be quick, simple, and painless. They even took a picture of my cat and sent it to me in the app. I knew that she was well cared for while I was away.
It's also nice to know that behind all this technology are real people, animal lovers who really care about the well-being of my pet. With Scout I'm able to see which staff member will be visiting my home, this builds trust that I know exactly who will be caring for my pet and entering my property, I like that level of accountability. Walk It Like A Dog aways provided great service. Now, it's even better!
