Dog walkers and pet sitters are a breed of their own. They love animals, crave being outdoors, aren’t squeamish about some of the more odiferous duties that come with the job, have flexible schedules and take great pride in their work.

Can technology really assist in such a hands-on profession? The answer is, yes.
