Swalky is free to use and open to everyone. Our vision is to bring together a wide network of users, from vast walks of life. This will not only help build social skills and respect for our planet, but it will also help promote mental health and wellbeing. We focus on the passion for dogs and walking, rather than individual characteristics. There is estimated to be 14.1 million people in the UK with a recognised disability (Scope, UK) and we’re pleased to be one of the few apps to actively incorporate disabilities into our platform. We plan to add many more disability features in the future.
Users are encouraged to walk locally wherever possible and remain responsible for all environmental impact. The UK plans to be carbon neutral by 2050 and one of the great benefits of walking is that it causes very little, if any carbon footprint at all. Our vision is to remain as carbon neutral as possible and improve the areas that we venture to. We want to keep communities growing and people walking for the long haul and an important part of that is keeping environments clean.
10% of all monthly earnings will be distributed to charities that are in line with our values. Users will have the option to vote for their charities of choice via our social media.
Here at Swalky, we understand how the human-dog relationship is one of the strongest bonds imaginable and the love and loyalty that dogs provide.
Dogs have reinvigorated modern-day walks with their fun personalities and behaviours and encouraged human interaction. We understand the importance of daily walks towards health and wellbeing. For that reason, we always invite dogs on our social walks and enjoy seeing their panting tongues and waggling tails! 😊Although, we are taking things a step further and building a community of walkers and dog lovers, where dogs can socialise, play and build skills with the same breeds, or many others. This will boost their self-esteem, provide mental stimulation and also release pent-up energy, which is particularly important for pedigree breeds.
Swalky makes walking your dog more enjoyable. Your dog meets other dogs, whilst you also meet new people in your area and forge new relationships. We allow users to search for fellow dog owners based on their age, gender, location, dog breed and walking preferences.
