WagHunt

Overview

Finding the right dog all on your own is hard and a cumbersome process. Dogs are often adopted and returned. Waghunt’s mission is to take out the agony, trouble, and surprises involved with adopting a dog.  My role was to help come up with initial high-level screens for their mobile app.

    Problem

    Each breed of dog has its pros, cons, and quirks. As much as we love our furry little friends this can be an issue. What most pet owners that don’t have much experience with dogs neglect to do is identify a dog breed that best supports their lifestyles and interests with their dog of choice.

    Design Solution

    After interviewing potential and current dog owners over at a local dog shelter I formed a few hypotheses to help guide me the onboarding survey for those interested in adopting a new dog. New pet owners often pick dogs by their visual appearance and size. In an effort to decrease wrong matches among dogs and their new homes I came up with an onboarding flow for Waghunt that would help guide new dog owners to the right breed of dogs that align well with their lifestyle.

    In addition, I tried streamlining the way appointments are set up with the dog rescues and shelters by designing a chatbot. The chatbot would help decrease the number of calls required and account for unique situations as the pet no longer being there, avoid the number of calls on the same dog and ensure that the pet shelter is not distracted by tasks that can be automated. In doing so this would help simplify tasks shared between the dog adopter and pet shelter.

    Lastly, in an effort to decrease the challenge of arriving at a pet shelter for seniors with limited transportation options, I set up a “visit me” option so that pet shelter specialists can visit their homes with their new potential pet.
