Weird as it may sound, even dogs have been blessed with their very own apps now. In fact, these were created with dog owners in mind, but they do equally help both the human and the pet. Why are these apps so important? Well, if you consider the fact that having a dog is almost like having a baby, you’ll quickly realize that dog owners need as much help as they can get. Without further ado, here are a couple of apps that might be worth your while, if you’re a doggy owner.
Yes, your dog is your best friend and you love it and it loves you, but this is no substitute for the little one (or the big one) having friends of its own kind. Well, DoggyDatez not only lets you help your dog find its peers within its own species, but also allows you to do the same! Simply use this app whenever you’re walking your dog and every other nearby user will quickly and seamlessly appear on the map. DoggyDatez also offers a fun feature of SkyJacking which offers you the opportunity to “take over” other users’ territories, while meeting them in this interactive and, above all, fun way!
While on the subject of dog walks, MapMyDogwalk is a perfect alternative for the above-mentioned app. Sure, there are times when you want to take a stroll with your furry friend and meet new people, but bonding through exercise and the good old one-on-one hangouts is also very important. Well, MapMyDogwalk allows you to map every detail of your dog walks – from your route to time, pace, speed and distance in real time! This app is obviously based on dog walks, but it is also an excellent fitness app, for both the pet and the owner!
If you’ve ever travelled with your dog, you’re fully aware of one of the biggest problems here – finding appropriate accommodation. While some hotels and motels are pet-friendly, the vast majority simply does not allow dogs on their premises, which is completely understandable, yet somewhat crippling when trying to find a place to stay in a foreign location. BringFido is an app that lets you search for hotels that offer pet accommodation and, therefore, is a perfect travel companion! Equipped with a number of useful filters, like popularity, distance, rating and price, this app will display every hotel with a clearly outlined policy on pets. Most importantly, BringFido’s customer service is always accessible, in case an issue arises!
The Fat Dog Diet
If your dog is fat, it isn’t really going to get self-conscious about its looks – this is simply not how animal minds work! Unfortunately, the single largest motivator behind people shedding weight is their physical appearance, rather than their health so, seeing as how dogs do not really care about their figure, it is the owner who has to take the matters into their own hands. The Fat Dog Diet is an app that offers help in this department – it allows you to tackle your dog’s fat loss goals! Of course, finding a quality dog food vendor, such as Net to pet is a must.
Although this is not a pet-oriented app, someone at Foursquare is obviously a dog lover! This app offers you a ton of convenient features, such as locating nearby pet stores and vet offices, which is perfectly convenient when you’re abroad! Foursquare is an excellent addition to your travel items checklist!
So, there you have it! These 5 apps are absolutely fantastic and extremely useful for every dog owner! With these digital helpers, having a dog is more convenient; now you can finally truly enjoy and treasure every moment with your favourite animal!
