AMAZING REVIEWS FROM WAG! PET PARENTS
I recently started using their dog boarding service! Both times I've done so have been great - and he's come home well taken care of, and I meet my dog sitters and see my dog with them as well. So happy with the level of care & service.
I've been using Wag! for 4 years now. My boys are so much happier in a home rather than a kennel. The dog boarders have been so caring and so good about letting me know each time how much boys are doing!
I've multiple pets, cats and dogs, and I'd rather have someone come to my home instead of boarding them. My pet sitter, Corynne, has cared for my pets for years. She's dependable and my pets love her! I wouldn't use anyone else!
