User or Customer Features

Registration Enable the user to conveniently register or sign up on your dog walking app using any of the following:

Live-Tracking Live-tracking features enable the dog owner/parent to access the live location of their dogs when they are out for the walk. 

In-App Payment Ensure that the app has a diverse payment option that enables users to choose the most convenient option. Card payment, mobile wallets, cash on delivery, etc., are a must for the user app.

In-App Communication Let the dog owners/parent communicate with the walker without leaving the app through in-app calling and messaging.

Feedback The user should have the option to submit feedback after completing a walk.
