Pet owners know that having pet is very rewarding, and even good for your health. More companies are creating solutions to daily problems pet owners face, like losing your dog and finding a bar where you can take your pet in a new location. We are throwing you a bone (chuckle) and giving you a list of apps that every pet owner should have on their smartphones.
If your biggest companions are both your phone and your pet, this list is for you:
The Whistle Activity Monitor is an on-collar device that measures your dog’s daily activity, giving you a new perspective on day-to-day behavior and long-term health trends. This is a great way to check in on your furry baby from your phone, wherever you are. You will get statistics and information on-the-go, which you can even share with your family. Cost is $99.
Alternatively, check out Pawscout which is more affordable.
Petcube is a home gadget that allows you to watch, play, and talk with your pets using your smartphones. For only $199 you can keep in touch with your pet; exercise them from your office. Who needs a dog walker?!!
Finding a dog park is not easy if you live in a large city. Not everyone has the luxury of having a large backyard for the dog to run free. Dog parks and even dog-friendly establishments are something that you’re constantly looking for. The Dog Park Finder Plus app wants to make things easier for you by displaying local dog parks and search results in both map and list pages. Park details include user ratings, fenced and un-fenced markers, on-leash rules, hours and days of operation and many other notes and features of the dog park. As you discover new places, you can add them to their listings too.
BringFido is a populat pet travel site that helps you find travel arrangements for you and your four-legged friends. They have a very useful site for when you are on-the-go with your pet and need a place to stay or even grab a bite.
Just because you’re walking your dog doesn’t mean you can’t meet someone special! DoggyDatez is a location-based mobile platform that makes it easier to find new friends and have more fun while walking your dog. Maybe you can meet someone interesting along the way who also loves dogs. By “marking your territory”, you’re taking ownership of an area (200m radius) in the physical world and seeing who else “visits” your spot, just like dogs do!
Keeping up with your pet’s health is not easy; there are bills and keeping their history is tough. Pet Phone helps you track everything from vet visits to weight history to allergies. You can track vet appointments, weight tracking and even medications.
