About Wag Labs, Inc.

Our Story

Wag! co-founder and CEO Joshua Viner missed his childhood pet, a Shetland Sheepdog named Brittany. Given his busy schedule as a tech entrepreneur in LA, Joshua was worried about committing to a dog of his own and his family and friends convinced him that it wouldn’t be fair. The more he thought about it, though, the more passionate he became about making dog ownership easier for busy people like him.

Using his background in building consumer tech companies and scaling them to millions of users, Josh founded Wag! with the mission to make it easier to own a dog. Wag's goal is to be your dog's button on your phone.

Josh connected with Jason Meltzer, Wag!’s co-founder and Chief Dog Officer, and the founder of Surfdog LA, one of Los Angeles’ best loved dog walking services. And the rest is . . . Wag!

Wag has launched their walking service in LA and San Francisco, with other major cities to follow.

With so many apps to help make our lives easier it’s about time that our furry loved ones have an app for themselves on our phones!

What We Do

Wag raises money for Best Friends Animal Society. We are donating a percentage of our profits (10 cents per every mile) earned on the application to their charity. Our mission is to make dog ownership easier by providing an on demand resource of trusted animal care providers.

The benefits of Wag include: Live GPS tracking of the dog on its walk, digital pup reports (pee and poo info), photo and video sharing & easy payment options. Think Uber for dog walking.
