Digital Dog-Walking Arrives in Fort Worth

Think Uber, but for dog-walking.

Wag!, the on-demand dog-walking app, launched service in Fort Worth in June. Founded in 2015 by a Los Angeles entrepreneur who was hesitant to take on a new pet due to his busy schedule, the app allows dog owners to order a 20-, 30- or 60-minute walk for their dog via their phone. Walks can be scheduled in advance with a set schedule or on demand with just 30-minutes’ notice (24/7). Puppy parents can watch the walk’s progress in real time through the app’s GPS and, when the walk is completed, receive a full pup report card detailing distance walked, a photo or video of their dog, and even a full report of where the dog took bathroom breaks. A 30-minute walk in Fort Worth is $20. For every dog walked, Wag! also donates a meal to a shelter dog.
