Problem is this only shows the path of the dog walker at some point. I mean they could do lots of things to cheat the system, if they deem it worth it.

A tamper proof collar with GPS is the only way to truly check (aside from cameras).

If you are that worried about this enough to consider all this it might behoove you to take a day off and act as your own private eye!
