A US business start-up that connects dog walkers with owners via a smartphone app has secured a $300m (£216m) investment from Japan's SoftBank Group. 
Los Angeles-based Wag Labs reportedly had sought $100 million from venture capitalists but was persuaded by SoftBank to up the ante to spur global expansion and head off competitors, Bloomberg reports.
