Wag App Review for Dog Walkers

Updated: Aug 5, 2023

Kevin, financial tutor on YouTube, has been a wag walker for one year and highly recommends it for a side hustle.

All you have to do is apply for the Wag app online. Here, you will be asked for your personal information, experience with dogs, and background information. It will take a couple of days before the information is verified.

You do not need to own a dog to become a dog walker. Just a little experience with the dogs will get you qualified.

How it works

After opening the app, you will receive a notification when dogs are available in your area that will need to be walked, boarded or checked in on in the dog owners home. Wag is first come, first serve. So once a dog owner post about a dog walk is available for example, the first person to respond to the post will be able to walk the dog and get paid.

How much does it pay?

It will depend on the number of people with dogs to be walked, where you are located, and the number of dog walkers in the market.

Kevin earns about $12 dollars for every half an hour he walks the dogs. The Wag app will take 40% of the total pay. For this case, the client offered $20 dollars and took $8 for a service fee. They have to get that commission since they connect you with the dog owners and keep the business running.

One way to get around paying the Wag commission would be to work with a dog owner multiply times, then ask the owner if they would like to do the payments off the app. That way you can charge a lower fee, in this example maybe $15 for a dog walk. So you would make $3 more doing it off the app and the dog owner would save $5.

There are other benefits to becoming a Wag walker than just making side hustle money. If you are thinking of having a dog someday, wag walking will give you the best opportunity to interact with different breeds and learn how to handle them. I also use the time I am using to walk the dogs around the neighborhood to check out what's happening in the real estate market.

Overall, if you are thinking about becoming a Wag walker, then I would recommend signing up and walking your first dog today!
