Track all activity in real-time, every time!

As of November 1st, 2013 each and every one of our team members are Glympsed. It’s official! What is Glympse you are probably wondering? Well, it’s a location sharing app/tool that we started using a few years ago by the request of one of our long-time clients. It basically allows one of our dog walkers/sitters to send out a “glympse” into their  GPS location/walking activity in real-time to a dog owner who can then view the activities on a map.

Earlier this summer we asked all team members who are equipped with a smartphone to start utilizing the Glympse.com app on their phones. Few month’s have gone by and everybody has jumped on board and putting this new tool to good use. 100% of our team is Glympsed. Yes!! Now each and every client of 919 Dog is able to get a glympse into their dog’s activities, by request.



If you would like to opt-in and request real-time activity updates daily via a text message or e-mail, contact your dog walker/sitter directly or your assigned coordinator of services if you have any other questions.

New website is here.. Woohoooo!!

Hi everybody! Yes, it’s been almost 4 month’s since the last update on our blog and today as you can see, we are finally up and running with our brand new website. It took a lot longer than expected to get it completed, so much going on behind the scenes, but we think that the wait was well worth it.

The new website has a ton of improvements on the front-end AND back-end too, and so many cool features which we are sure that you’ll find useful and enjoy over the long-run. Thanks to everybody for the feedback! We couldn’t have done it without your support.

Our store is still not fully ready to be rolled out yet. Probably sometime later in 2014 we will re-visit that idea once again when all the dust settles with the brand new main website. We’ll just surprise you with the awesome store once it is ready for action! :)

New office location… Cary, here we come

Next week all of us will be officially moving into our new Cary office space where we’ll be setting up our company headquarters and running the training programs. We are still going to maintain a physical presence in our North Raleigh office as well. Our bright and airy Cary open-space will house our second, much larger, multi-purpose corporate offices which we are very proud of! Very excited about this move and hope you are too.

Please note that as of April 20th, 2013 we will be adding extended office hours on Wednesday’s (from 8 am til’ 9 PM) and we are now going to be available for general support weekends too! Saturday and Sunday from 9 AM – 5 PM. Awesome… Right?! You bet.

Recent website downtime/outages.. Sorry !

 

To all clients,

Over the past week or so we experienced various outages and extensive downtime to our website as our Joomla powered website got overloaded and then crashed repeatably. This made life pretty miserable for all of us here at 919 Dog and you, the clients. Sorry about that! We believe the problem has been addressed and we should be good to go.

We have been deliberating for a while now about re-doing our entire website from scratch after all these years, and we may just have to do that sooner than later to avoid any other downtime in the future, which really aren’t much fun.

The past week, our phones were ringing off the hook non-stop since the website was pretty much non-existent…. Lets hope it doesn’t happen again. It’s a huge headache that we would like to avoid, as I am sure you would too!

Please feel free to call or e-mail me directly if you have any other questions or need anything else meanwhile.

Sincerely,

– Anne Davis
