Are you supposed to tip Wag Walkers?

Last Updated: 11th July, 2021

Regular customers should tip at year end at about the cost of one week of the regularly scheduled fee. Infrequent customers should tip in the amount of one or two day's walking fee. Otherwise, most tips should be 10-20% of the daily fee. Tipping a dog walker isn't mandatory, but it's always appreciated.

Furthermore, do you tip wag dog walkers?

You can set your own schedule, including early morning and late night walks; Some owners tip very well (I have a few clients who tip 50% on a $12 walk). Wag should take no more than 20% of a walker's pay and owners should be informed how much the walker actually receives so they are more likely to tip.”

Similarly, how much do Wag Walkers make per walk? We talked to dog walkers to find out. Wag cofounder and CEO Joshua Viner told BuzzFeed News that “on average, a walker makes around $17.50 per walk.” Private, professional walkers, however, can make between $20 and $40 — and, because they don't need to pay Wag a cut, they keep more of that cash for themselves.

One may also ask, how much do Wag Walkers get tipped?

It's $20 for a 30 min walk. After each walk it asks if you want to tip. I have the same person come each time.
