The First Social Network Just for Dogs | Paway

Take heed: this social network for dogs will blow every pet parent away.
It goes by the name of “Paway”.
Co-founded by Jason Meltzer, Paway is an app that allows you to tap into a community of dog lovers.
And by that, we mean that you can take your dog out for the best walks and meet other pet parents in your locality.
Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?
According to Jason, who is also the company’s CEO,

“Paway is the culmination of all my experiences designed from the ground up to make an impact for pet parents and pet pros.”

Developing Paway

As someone who has loved pets even when he was a kid, Jason has been in the pet space since he was 13 years old. He established his first dog walking company at the age of 25, later started Wag, and eventually headed Paway.

“The world of pet parents was missing something that I had been thinking about for years. I wanted to create a better tool for keeping your dog healthy for free,”

Jason said on their website.
Essentially, Jason aims to help improve the lives of animals and their parents using technology.
It was because of this that he built Paway, as he envisioned pet care providers to be able to make a living by caring for animals.

“I wanted to build something that had more of a community base towards it, that allowed neighbors with dogs to find each other, whether they’re in their hometown or traveling around the world. But I also wanted to build more tools for pet care providers to actually manage and grow their business.”

Connecting Pet Parents and Pet Pros Through Paway

developing paway Looking at Paway as sort of next-door-meets-Service-Titan for pets, Jason explains that it’s easy to use the app.
Simply download the app on iOS or Google Play Store, create a profile, and voila! You can now access the GPS-based social app.
Paway shares the information on your profile with other app users in your neighborhood.
This way, if you’re out on a walk with your pup and you want to have social interaction with other local pet parents, you can easily see which dogs would mesh well with yours.
Another thing you can also do on the app is crowdsourcing. This affords Paway users a chance to engage in their local community feed. They can also see any important news that may affect their dogs’ health.

“My background has allowed me to be a professional dog walker, be a dog owner, manage a large dog walking company. But when walking the dogs’ client, I had to know where there was a dog that was breaking through the fence last time, where I saw that stray dog last time, there’s this great watering hole over here… That information needs to be shared to the community…”

With Paway, therefore, you can feel just like a local every time you travel with your dogs.
No more asking around where to go and the places or things to avoid since Paway is your best friend when it comes to all that.
Even better, if you’re a pet professional, Paway doesn’t take any commission from your services.
You can add all your clients to the app so they can easily book you. You also have great tools to promote your business.

“We’re just getting started with the types of features that we want to bring to help these businesses. But we think that what we’re doing will make their lives easier and make the dog walks more enjoyable.”
