For some, they are just pets, and for others, they are like their family members, a best friend, loyal companion and the list goes on… But the problem occurs when everyone in the family is out for their 9-5 job except the pet.
Our furry friends need caring like grooming, bathing, feeding and when ill, it is also needed to take the pets and make them exercise. Exercise is vital for a pet’s health h and well-being, it promotes their physical and emotional health. But due to the busy schedule of the owner, they are unable to help their pets with the exercise they need their pet needs.
So, the client wanted to build a system which can help pet owners to give the best care to their furry friends despite their busy schedules so that their pet can have a healthy, fit and happy life.
According to the recent survey, 92% of the people admitted that they are extremely concerned about the health and well being of their pets. 60% of people try to plan a shorter vacation as they have no one to look for their pets.
According to Google Trends, the number of people searching for “dog walkers near me”, “pet caretakers near me” has increased rapidly over the past few months.
After the initial research, we performed a competitive analysis of the currently existing applications and services that offer pet care services. We downloaded a few of the applications and compared the features in terms of the services and features they offered.

After creating a profile on the app, pet owners have to create a profile for their pet. Pet profile includes the type of pet you have i.e. Dog or Cat, then choosing Breed of the pet, its Name, is Gender, Age, Weight and NaturComplete details of the pet will enable the pet caretaker to understand about the pet and know everything about it before confirming the services.
