I've been using Wag for about 4 years now. I don't know how I managed before! I love that I can either schedule a walk ahead of time, or get some one at the last minute.

Peace of mind to have vetted people come into my home and take care of my fur baby when I'm at work. When my husband is away on business my long work days aren't fair to my pup.


I love Wag. I’m so grateful that this service is available for us pet parents. There are times when work keeps me longer. I can contact Wag within 10mins my worries are over.


Wag is a fantastic service! It allows me to live alone in an apartment and not have to ever worry about my dog being cared for.


The Wag service is great. I really appreciate the professional and caring individuals who have helped me with dog care.


With our crazy busy schedule, sometimes we are unable to walk our dog. This service has been such a blessing to us!
