Dog owners, rejoice! No longer do you have to choose between loving your dog or your busy schedule.

A new 24/7, on-demand dog walking app called Wag! is now available in Milwaukee.

At any time, a dog owner can use Wag! to summon an available dog walker for a 20, 30, or 60-minute walk. Owners can choose an immediate, on-demand walk, or set a scheduled time for one. Users can even track the walks on their GPS in real time.

After each trip, a "pup report" is sent to the app, which includes a picture or video of the dog after the walk, a map of the route taken, and a note on when and where the pet went to the bathroom.

There are also "sitting" and "boarding" options on Wag! if you are on vacation and need someone to take care of your pet overnight.

The app has earned a 3.4 rating and thousands of downloads on the Google Play Store (nearly 500 reviews). Wag! is now in major markets all over the United States.

“We are proud to expand our services to these pet loving cities across the country,” said Josh Viner, co-founder of Wag!.

“Dog owners can now have peace of mind that their dog can be walked by a safe and trusted walker, even in a pinch. As many pet lovers are also busy with professional and social responsibilities, it only makes sense to provide them with services that can ease the stress of pet ownership with the touch of a button.”

Wag!, which was founded in January 2015, thoroughly vets the walkers before allowing them to join the company.
