As a professional dog walker and dog minder, you have so many responsibilities in order to keep not only the dog happy but often the owners too!
We know you are likely to have way more than one dog to look after and that you might have to be picking up dogs and dropping them off at all sorts of unsociable hours of the day.
On top of that, you may also be taking them for walks multiple times, and you will also have to be doing your admin in the car alongside all of that, which is why Pocket PA is here to help. We want you to work smarter not harder.
Running your dog walking business and being self-employed can be challenging if you don’t have the right systems in place but it’s a doddle with Pocket PA because it was designed and created just for the microbusiness owner like yourself. Eliminating overwhelm and providing a structured one-stop solution means that you can skyrocket your productivity and profits by working like a boss.
Pocket PA is the simple one-stop, one-click solution for getting organised for every mobile dog walker. Seeing all your appointments in one place with a colour-coded diary is excellent for feeling structured and keeping on top of your calendar.
It’s the easiest way for you to spend more time with the dogs on ‘walkies’ and giving out dog treats and less time on the necessary but often boring admin.
Pocket PA is a mobile-friendly web-based app that is structured, easy to use and the smartest way to keep your dog walking business running on the go, wherever you may be! Especially ideal if you are just starting out and working out how to set up a new dog walking business or pet care service.

It gives you the opportunity to spend more time with the dogs by working smarter and spending less time on the admin ’stuff’ for your business.
If you are mobile it also an automated business mileage tracking feature which is invaluable to help you reclaim for all the travel you legitimately do between your clients' homes.
