The DogHero app is a tool that allows you to find people to walk around with your dogs. Available for iPhone (iOS) and Android smartphones, the platform offers options to schedule weekly or single tours and sends the request to registered caregivers. For the user, simply include your dog's information, add his address and respond to a quick questionnaire to close a ride request.
After the request, the system searches for the caregiver that best fits the animal's profile and sends a response within 24 hours via email and cell phone notifications. Tours of 30 minutes or 1 hour, cost from $ 25. Payment is made in the application by credit card.

Just like in Uber or 99 Pop, users can view in real time the path taken by the caregiver. In this way, it is possible to check where the person went with the dog and even suggest changes in the path.
For now, the platform works only in the city of Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. To test the application, we use an upgraded iPhone 7 with iOS 11 operating system.
Step 1. Open the app and, if you do not have a registered dog, take the steps to register it. Otherwise, tap "Skip".
