Chances are, if you’ve ever left town, worked late, or had an emergency of one sort or another, you’ve been left scrambling to find a pet sitter or holding a giant boarding bill. Say goodbye to all that anxiety and budget-busting frustration! There’s a new solution in town… and it’s called Spotwag.
Spotwag solves just about every source of stress I’ve ever experienced with pet sitting or boarding. Built on the idea of trust and established relationships, Spotwag uses Facebook to help you find the perfect pet sitter — using friends and connections you already have. Brilliant, right?
Once you create a profile on Spotwag (for you or your pet), you can quickly and easily put the call for help out. Trusted friends (most likely people who are already “liking” all those photos of your dog and would love to snuggle with them) can sign up to help out. Who you choose and how you thank them is up to you! (There is no built-in compensation system. Spotwag is based on the idea of karma–so whether you say “thanks” with a bottle of wine, lots of hugs, or cold hard cash is your choice.)
Don’t have a pet? You can still sign-up as a sitter! Consider it a Rent-a-Pet situation for those unsure about committing to one of their own.
I am completely on board with this idea, personally! What do you think? Is Spotwag a life-saver? Would you use it?
