Hey guys for anyone who doesn't know Wag. It's an appbusiness for requesting walks for your dog while you are unavailable. (Kind of like Uber for dog walking 😀). I just started doing this and it's great. If you want to try it out for free, you can use my promo code "AMANDA7060" for $20 of FREE Wag credit!
