The dog-walking industry has taken a hit.
EVERYBODY IS OUT WALKING THEIR OWN DOGS.
If our clients take out Fluffy on Pokemon adventures instead of going to work or otherwise adulting, we’re in real trouble. So we’ve come up with a solution. For an extra $15/hour, leave your phone at home, and we’ll train your Pokemon while we’re walking your dog!
WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON?
Pokemon GO is not officially released in Canada yet, but that hasn’t stopped the Land of the Strong and Free from joining in on the fun.
You may have noticed an unusual number of millennials aimlessly wandering around as of late, enraptured by their phones.
Perhaps you’ve overheard a conversation or two on the streetcar about a certain cheat that will yield a starter Pikachu. Or maybe when you glance out your window while working away at your desk, where before there was only an unassuming tree or statue, you now see a small crowd gather at seemingly random times with no apparent cause.
They are searching for fictional creatures that will pop up on their phones as they explore the real world. Once they’ve caught them, they need to train them to make them stronger, so they can be the very best Pokemon trainer that no one ever was. They do this by walking – that’s where we come in.
It’s hilarious, encouraging, and surreal all at once. Who knew all it took to encourage socialization and exercise was Pokemon? Seeing the masses get so involved feels a little bit like the start of a mind-control Doctor Who plot, but we digress.
In any case, everyone needs to pay the bills, so if you want your Pokemon to train while you are at work, hit up Walk My Dog Toronto for the Train My Pokemon deal and let the augmented reality adventures continue!
Walk My Dog Toronto offers dog-walking services in downtown Toronto. With easy online booking, we walk your dog while you are busy or at work. We give your dog love, socialization, and exercise, and we keep in touch with you every step of the way with our walk tracker.
