Wag Launches Four Legged Presidential Campaign
In a far more civilized and enjoyable respite from this year's Presidential campaign, Los Angeles-based dog walking marketplace and service Wag says it has launched its own, Presidential-themed campaign, which seeks to let people pick a "dog president" in a national race. According to the company, its Wag! Dog for President campaign has celebrities like Uber founder and CEO Travis Kalanick, "Pretty Little Liars" Lucy Hale, and others urging fans to vote for their dogs. The winning dog's owner will get to select which city Wag will launch its marketplace into next. Kalanick's dog, Yobu, is a Goldendoodle; Hale's dog, Elvis, is a Maltipoo. Wag currently operates in New York, Austin, Chicago, Seattle, LA, Orange County, San Diego, and San Francisco.
