    Tractiv's Dog Walk app is an exercise tracker for dog walks using GPS sensors to record your dog's walking route.  The info is displayed on a map, complete with distance and time.

    Additional features include the ability to view a record of your dog walk routes.  You can share with friends and family, or use them to record activities.

    The app is free for iOS and Android.

    Pet First Aid from the American Red Cross is a first aid guide and knowledge base for owners of dogs and cats.

    The app provides instant access to simple first aid lessons, step-by-step guides and a nice selection of how-to videos.

    There's also a section for vet contact details.  The app is free for iOS and Android. 

    Rover is something of an "Uber for dog sitters."

    It helps you find dog sitters, all of whom have been vetted for trustworthiness, and the service is covered by insurance.

    You can book pet sitters for boarding, house sitting and doggy day care.  Sitters can use the app to provide photo updates and notifications to pet owners.

    The app is free for iOS and Android.
