Wag! gives me great peace of mind while I am at work. I get to the minute potty information and a picture of his smile at the end of walk. Thank you Wag!

Great app for hiring a dog walker! I love that I can track where my dog is, how many miles she walked, when she potties, etc. She comes back very happy!

This is the best thing for my dog and I. He loves getting to meet new people and going on long walks. I'm not worried about him not getting enough exercise!

I've been using Wag! for about 6 months and love the convenience of being able to have someone take care of my pup when I'm gone.

Stimulate your pup's mind

Bored dogs are often destructive dogs. When they don't get enough stimulation, even trained dogs might resort to gnawing on furniture, peeing on your shoes, or digging up the garden. Whether you have a Greyhound or a Pug, a daily 30-minute walk will offer up all manner of new sights, smells, and experiences for your pup to soak up.

Keep the pounds off

Let's face it — we all love treating our good boys and girls to a tasty table scrap now and then. That's precisely why walking your dog daily is essential. Obesity in dogs is linked to an array of illnesses, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Both pups and people who exercise regularly live longer on average than those who don't. Daily walks ensure your dog's life is as long, healthy, and happy as possible!
