How does Wag! evaluate boarders?

Many of the dog boarders have worked as veterinary technicians or shelter volunteers. The majority have been lifelong dog owners and caretakers. 95% of Wag! boardings result in a perfect, 5-star review.

How do I pay for the service?

Wag! accepts all major credit cards, including VISA, MasterCard and American Express. Never pay by cash or check as this makes your booking ineligible for premium insurance and 24/7 support.
