Patrick , Kristin  and thier team use the app, Doggy Logs, to track each and every walk. The app maps the route of the walk, the duration, and even has a place for pics of your pup on the walk and any relevant notes from the day. After a walk is finished, the log is immediately emailed to you through the app. Island Pooch staff pride themselves on honest customer service and reliability! Your Mutt will be saying Mahalo!!
