Vetted daycare hosts

Book with a highly-rated daycare host who will welcome your dog into their home when you're at work or busy during the day. Whether it's one time or repeated, daycare with Wag! is a great way to care for your dog.

Wag! is very helpful when it's too complicated to find a pet hotel for your animal, or if you need to board them at the last minute. And I can request a walk literally an hour before I need it, which makes me not worry about my dog when I leave the house.

How does Wag! evaluate daycare hosts?
