[a dog’s life] Dog Walking with Wag!
When I heard about the recent launch of Wag!—the Uber-esque service for dog walking—I had to try it out. I downloaded the mobile app, set up a dog profile and in a matter of minutes I had booked my first walk.
So, how does it work? Once you enter your location, you’ll see icons of dog walkers in your neighborhood.
Each dog walker—who is background checked, insured and bonded—has a video profile that tells you a little bit about them.
You can book a walk for your dog daily, weekly or as a one-time event.
When our dogwalker arrived, I handed her the leashes to my two dogs, Reba and Dingo, and off they went.
I was able to track my dogs’ Wag! walk in real time on the app. Thirty minutes and one mile later, Reba and Dingo came back happy and tuckered out.
Soon after the walk’s completion, I received a report. My dogs received an A- because Dingo was momentarily nippy with other dogs.
Dog walks cost $20 for a 30-minute walk and each additional dog is $5.
I found the whole experience to be so convenient and I know my dogs had a blast. I will definitely use them again. You can find Wag! at wagwalkingcom.
