Task of the Week: Walk the Dog

We’ve had dogs on the brain lately. We blame this mostly on Kobe and the army of TaskRabbit office dogs he commands, but the TaskRabbit community is also furthering our puppy obsession by posting so many canine-related Tasks. Last week, we shared the story of TaskRabbit’s role in helping a family find the dog of their dreams, but for this week’s Task of the Week we wanted to bring it down to the everyday level: TaskRabbits can walk your dogs.

Sadly, the family’s previous dog passed away about a year ago. Matt knew they were ready to love another pup, and TaskRabbit Jill S. helped him find the perfect adult dog to rescue — a Welsh Springer Spaniel named Pedro.
