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.
There is way too much time for rest. It is very difficult to get walking jobs. Too much competition. Walkers personalize cliets and cut wag out. It becomes more of a one time walker referal service than anything.
Yes, there is no set schedule. You choose yourself.
Some areas are hotter than others. For example I live in Santa Monica and EVERYONE has a dog and wants them to be walked. But when I was living in the suburbs there weren’t as many people.
Yes, it's a "work when you want" type of job, like Uber. But, when no walks are actually coming in, that point is pretty moot.

The app provides you leads to owners who want someone to walk your dog and you have the option to request/accept the walk at the conditions(Salary &time of walk) of the dog owner. So it is in a way choose your own hours.
