I believe you are qualified and the physical activity isn't strenuous. If you like walking dogs and can drive anywhere from down the street to 10 miles to walk a dog. Might need a small walkthrough for the app itself, unless you are tech savvy. The pay-by-walk system can be both a motivator and the antithesis of it. But if you are motivated, you can easily start making $20 and if around a nice city, it can go up to $27+ per hour. Mind you, keep a notepad and receipts of everything you can write off say, mileage, expenses, and for boarding (having the dog over at your house), if you spend money because of the dog, keep a booklet and every receipt. I think it's the perfect job for someone retired, to keep you healthy with all these walks; with its high pay rate (if fully motivated), and low physical needs.

I have started working with Wag a week ago from today and I have noticed that when I'm booked to walk a dog at a certain time I get flooded with notifications to walk different dogs at the same time. Why doesn't the app take a walkers availability off the app when on a walk since 1 person cannot be in 2 different places at once? It's annoying because most people in my area want their dogs walked at 1:30pm to 2:30pm but since I have a permanent walk Monday through Friday those days at that time why do I still get offers for that time if I'm already walking a dog? I shouldn't even be notified for that time frame since I already have a walk scheduled. If it's possible I hope Wag fixes this issue because it makes me sad that I have to decline walks because the owners don't know that I'm already on walks and we cannot walk 2 different appointments at one time but the app says I'm available which is not true I'm busy at that time while on a walk.

I wish I knew. I applied online Monday and they have called all of my references. It's Thursday and I haven't received an email or call.

Hello I work for Wag just started a month ago. It's nice being my own boss. I make about $100 a day on average. Doing like 8 walks or so. I like it so far. I started in April and so far when it rains it get busy real fast. Like 4 times the walks. I can't wait until winter when it's frozen out. I think I will be making stacks.

Answered

Yes, but YOU are responsible for the pet. DO NOT let the other person handle the pet.

Answered

Nope! I live in one of their biggest cities and it's hard to make real money from this. Consider it coffee money/extra pocket change/savings. Not that you won't ever make a few hundred it just takes a lot and there aren't always enough clients.

Answered

Average of $18-20 per hour

They are very competitive. Most walks are only for 20 minutes, but when applying they made it sound like we were going to be getting a bunch of 1 hour long walks (less time walking, less money you earn).

Answered

Once paying the 25$ fee does that assure me a spot on the wag staff team?
