Yes, dog apps – if you are a pet owner, you’ve probably heard of these. Ridiculous as it may sound, dog apps are actually pretty cool – having a dog is almost like having a baby and there can never be enough help when it comes to taking care of someone. In the crazy mess that is the modern-day life, we need as much of this help as we can get and this is where apps kick in. These apps have been designed for you and your furry buddy – both of you will benefit.
This app allows you to, well, map the walks with your dog. It takes care of everything, logging your route, tracking and displaying time, pace, distance, speed and elevation; all in real-time! Additionally, MapMyDogwalk calculates calories that you burn while walking your furry friend. Although generally considered a dog walking app, this brilliant “gadget” is just as much a fitness app, what with the ability to track your route and count those burnt calories. MapMyDogwalk excels at multitasking!
You aren’t the only one who needs friends. Okay, of course you and your dearly beloved dog are best friends, but we’re talking about friends of the same species here. DoggyDatez is a location-based app that gives you and your dog an opportunity to socialize with other owners of this app. It’s pretty simple – this app marks your location and allows you to sea other users that happen to be nearby. Now for the fun part of this app – DoggyDatez comes with a humorous feature of SkyJacking, which basically lets you try and take over other users’ territories and meet them through a fun and interactive way!
The Fat Dog Diet
Yes, the age of obesity has finally made its entrance into the world of dogs. Keeping an eye on your own diet is difficult enough, let alone having to keep track of what your dog is eating. This app is basically a digital food log for your furry pet, which allows you to tackle your dog’s fat loss goals. Pro tip: we recommend that you get some food from Net to Pet, just to get you started with helping your dog shed its excess weight.
If you travel relatively frequently and aren’t really smitten by the idea of leaving your dog back home, you probably know all about the troubles of finding a pet-friendly hostel. This app has been designed with exactly this in mind – it lets you search for hotels that allow pets on their premises and even lets you book your stay at the spot! BringFido comes equipped with a variety of useful filters, such as popularity, rating, distance and price. If a registered hotel has outlined an in-detail policy on pets, this app will let you access it. BringFido’s customer service is always available should any problems arise. As an addition, this app allows you to browse dog-friendly cafés, parks, restaurants and events, once you’ve settled in!
Yes, we know this isn’t a dog app per se, but it offers a lot of convenient features, including being able to locate nearby pet stores and vets offices. Sure, you are probably well-aware of all dog-related locations in your hometown, but if you’ve ever had to go through the trouble of finding a pet store or a vet’s office in an unfamiliar location, you’ll appreciate this Foursquare option hugely! This app also displays dog parks that are perfect for taking your dog for a stroll and is extremely dog-friendly; someone at Foursquare is obviously a dog lover!
These apps are all excellent choices for any pet owner. Throughout the years, they have made owning a dog significantly more convenient and all that remains now is leisure time with your favorite animal in the world!
