Zingy dog walking service

Zingy is a new dog walking app that lets people book a dog walker. The service could become the Uber of dog walking. Zingy says the service lets you book a "trained and educated dog walker." Zingy says dog walkers are put through a background check and in-person interviews.

The app is available for both iOS and Android devices. The app includes options for the length of dog walking service and extra options, such as food, water and treats.

Zingy CEO and founder Tobi Skovron, says in a statement, "We know that being busy at work or with the kids, going on vacation, or just having a lifestyle that's not conducive to routine plans, are all factors when choosing to become a dog owner. Even for existing dog owners, circumstances are always changing. We wanted to create an environment that makes it easier for both dog owners and the dogs themselves."

Update: The app is now known as Rover.
