Family Dog Finds Missing Cat Months After House Fire
It’s not quite the doggy version of Uber or Lyft. After all, on-demand ride services don’t provide a “pee & poo” report on passengers(at least we hope they don’t).
Another key difference: Wag! has set fees and it doesn’t do surge pricing -- not even when, say, a hot new dog park opens and every pooch in town is trying to get there at the same time.

Walks here cost $14 for a 20 minutes, $20 for 30 minutes and $30 dollars for a 60 minute walk. Plus $5 extra for each additional dog from the same household (Overnight dog sitting and boarding services are also available).
As for dogs from different households . . . Wag! says it doesn't walk your dog along with anyone else's. "Wag! is a personal dog walking service and we only serve one customer at a time," it explains in the Frequently Asked Questions section on its web site.
Some other responses to commonly asked questions: Owners don’t have to be home at the time of the walk and all the vetted walkers are “passionate animal lovers” (”fewer than 5% of applicants make the cut!” Wag! proclaims in one of its many -- trust us on this -- followup emails to humans who download the app.) Wag! is available in the App Store or Google Play.
