It is very hard to keep your pooch healthy and fit if you are a working person that is always stuck in work and are always delayed getting home. If you are stuck at something important and do not have time to walk your dog, do not feel guilt.

Today’s advanced world is focused on making the life of the human being more convenient and flexible.

In this digital world, you can get facilities for your dog just with a click. There are many apps that are excellent choices for your dog if you are looking for a boarding service and dog walker for your pooch in both Android and IOS device.

2. Wag!

Wag is younger than the Rover and is a very popular app after rover. They check the criminal background of the newly hired walkers and also provides them with training before letting them walk your dog. You can book a walk from the app after creating an account with your dog’s basic information.

After following the process of booking, you will be searching for a walker near you. However, wag does not always let you choose the walker like rover which can be a bit irritating.
