We’re thankful every day for the pet caregivers who choose to provide services on the Wag! platform. These independent contractors work in their local communities across the country, providing much-needed services for pet parents and taking care of thousands and thousands of dogs on a daily basis.
Given the Thanksgiving season, we thought it would be great to hear from some of the pet parents about why they’re thankful for their pet caregivers. Here’s some of what we heard.
Dria, pet parent of Hudson: “I was very thankful for this last walker I had because he was careful with my dog Hudson who’s a rescue puppy and gets anxious around new people. He cleaned up Hudson’s anxious accident and gave me lots of photos/video of the walk which I appreciated. Due to my busy work schedule, I rely heavily on walkers with Wag! They go above and beyond to make sure Hudson is taken care of and walked properly.”
Ali, pet parent of Charlie & Mac: “Heidi has been especially fantastic and always goes above and beyond for us. When I have been out of town and she helps out, she always makes sure Charlie and Mac have the treats and toys they need to be entertained when she leaves. She always includes videos and great photos of them during their walks, she is great with communication, and I know they will be in great hands with her every time. We’re grateful to have her as our preferred walker.”
Holly, pet parent of Luna: “We use Wag! during the workweek for our dog Luna! We are thankful for each and every one of you who walk our pup for an hour Monday through Friday. Knowing our pup is in good hands makes the workweek a little less stressful!”
Kristy, pet parent of Risley: “We've been using Wag! for many months now and we have one walker who has walked Risley 38 times, and we absolutely love her.”
Erin, pet parent of Sam, Zella, and Pebbles: "I absolutely love the quickness that walkers have with picking up walks and saving the pups' day! My pups have found some amazing, consistent walkers, as well, who communicate any questions they have, such as whether they need dinner or not. Thank you!"
Emily, pet parent of Deuce: “I’ve been so grateful for all of the walkers I’ve had with Wag! Today, my walker came within 30 minutes’ notice and took the time to care for my pup when I couldn’t make it home. I got detailed notes of the walk, and she gave my dog the attention she needed!”
Mara, pet parent of Lucy: “My partner, my pup, and I were about to drive 4 hours for an event. Thanks to our walker that we booked an hour before we left, Lucy slept the whole car ride.”
Letty, pet parent of Audie and Bear: “Submitted in grateful recognition of our walkers who show up when we’re unable to. The pups are not stressed after a long day, and we are happy to know that they’ve had the care and opportunity to stretch their legs and relieve themselves when work and special events call us elsewhere. Thanks for all you do, and for being available for our four-legged pals.”
Katrina, pet parent of Enzo: “I was thankful for my walker Becka, when my neighbor called me and said her German Shepherd got out and charged at my Boston Terrier, Enzo, but Becka scooped Enzo up so fast before the shepherd could attack. We were all thankful for her quick response. No one was harmed and we're forever grateful.”
Alejandro, pet parent of Keesha: “I love it when the walkers send me photos and spend time with my puppy.”
