The DogHero app is a tool that allows you to find people to walk your dogs. Available for iPhone (iOS) and Android smartphones, the platform offers options to schedule weekly or individual tours and sends the request to registered caregivers. For the user, just include information about your dog, add your address and answer a quick questionnaire to close a tour request.
Upon request, the system searches for the caregiver that best suits the animal's profile and sends a response within 24 hours by email and cell phone notifications. Tours of 30 minutes or 1 hour, cost from R $ 25. Payment made on the app by credit card.

As with Uber or 99 Pop, users can view the route taken by the caregiver in real time. In this way, it is possible to check where the person went with the dog and even suggest changes in the route.
For now, the platform works only in the city of Rio de Janeiro and So Paulo. To test the application, we used an updated iPhone 7 with iOS 11 operating system.
Step 1. Open the app and, if you don't have a co registered, perform the steps to register it. Otherwise, tap "Skip".
