With 50% of active pet parents on the platform subscribing to Wag! Premium as of June 30, 2022, adding additional benefits was a logical next step:
"We want to be the button on your phone that your pet could push to get whatever they need," said Wag! CEO, Garrett Smallwood. "The Premium Benefits Center gets us one step closer, by offering discounts on world-class products that both pet parents and pets will love, and we’re thrilled to incorporate such amazing brands into our platform."
Wag! Premium subscribers can now receive 60% off their first order of freshly-packed, cold-shipped dog food with Nom Nom, 20% off the Angry Orange Odor Eliminator, and get their first three months of DogTV for only $2 per month, among other benefits perfect for pet lovers.
For the 76.5% of pet parents feeling at least somewhat nervous about petcare challenges as companies return back to office, the Premium Benefits Center offers them one less thing to worry about with an easy-to-use platform to browse vetted and trusted brands and get discounts exclusive to Wag! Premium members.
Wag! Premium also offers 10% off all pet care services booked through the Wag! platform, waived booking fees, and free, 24/7 access to chat with a credentialed veterinary professional.
