Our story began with our co-founder, Aliya, and her dog Russell. If you're anything like her, then you understand the torturous daily routine of saying goodbye to your dog before leaving for your 8 to 10 hour work day. Closing the door behind your best friend, and seeing those puppy dog eyes is not only painfully hard, but it can lead to dogs developing anxiety, depression. and/or destructive behaviour. She knew there had to be a solution, and PawSwap was born.
When you join the PawSwap community you'll learn about exclusive PawSwap events, and other events and activities in your area, so you can meet your neighbours and find new friends that can lend a hand when you're in a bind. Reward whoever helps with Points, which you earn by helping other Neighbour's out.
It's Pay-it-forward at its finest!
1. Attend dog-friendly events.
Find out about exclusive PawSwap events and community events in your city and get rewarded for attending them with your pup! All you have to do is Check In to earn Points.
2. Grow Your Pack.
It takes an army to raise a…. dog! Meet someone at an event? Add them to your Pack on PawSwap. Now, have all your dog-loving and owning friends are in one place. Have a question you need an answer to? Need someone to watch your pup? Send a message to your entire Pack and get an answer from the people you trust the most.
3. Start Sending Points.
Remember that time your friend helped you out with a dog walk, and you didn't have time to grab a bottle of wine, and next thing you know, you completely forgot about it (yah, you know who you are!). Well, now you don't have to worry about thanking your friends with gifts or cash. Transferring Points to friends that help you out is easy!
4. Reward yourself.
Don't need pet sitting or dog walks? There are lots of ways to use your Points. Redeem them on paw-some rewards, like free tickets to events, activities, gift cards, or even products from your favourite local companies shipped right to your door.
The PawSwap community makes owning and caring for a dog easier and more affordable, and Points make it all possible.
Earn Points by attending events, helping out a friend by watching their dog, or purchasing Points directly from the app. 1 Point is only $1 which is valid for a whole hour of pet sitting.
You can then use your Points to reward yourself and your dog by getting free products and services from your favourite brands.
