Wag! is an app that is delivering dog walkers on-demand. A dog walker isn’t necessarily hard to find. You can go to almost any park and find a flyer with a phone number to call. But Wag! is making it easier for busy folks to care for their pets, delivering quality dog walkers with the tap of an app.

Insured walkers can be summoned to your home within the hour. They’re even using some cool technology so you don’t even have to be home when they arrive. They’ll send you a GPS map of where they walked your dog, and even drop a pin to show you where Fido did his “business”. In this episode, I chat with the president of Wag!, Jonathan Viners, about how the app was dreamt up, as well as more of the useful technology they’ve put into place. I even joined Wag! walker Casey and her furry friend Benny for an afternoon stroll in West Hollywood.

Wag! is the perfect solution for busy people who still want to make sure their pets are well cared for. Join us as we explore Wag! on this episode of Tech Smart: America on Demand!
