Apps are a part of everyday life. We use apps to find restaurants. We use apps to entertain ourselves. Apps are a means by which we can connect with others. But did you know that you can use apps to help you as a pet owner? Apps are an inexpensive and useful tool that pet owners can utilize in order to keep their pet(s) safe, locate the nearest dog park, and generally assist in keeping pet owners more organized and informed.
Where Should You Walk Your Dog?
For example, are you having a hard time finding the perfect route to take your dog on a walk? Do you want to change things up by trying out a new walking route? As a pet sitter, I find myself in new and unfamiliar neighborhoods all the time and trying to find the perfect route to walk is not always an easy task to manage, not to mention the risk of getting lost in a new neighborhood. MapMyDogwalk has made the task of finding the perfect route to walk a breeze and I don’t ever have to worry about trying to memorize the path I took.
MapMyDogwalk allows you to keep a log of your walks so that you can view different routes that you have taken. For those of you that are more fitness minded, you can track calories burned through MapMyDogwalk. If you are feeling adventurous, you can map a different route to walk using GPS. The MapMyDogwalk app is a lifesaver when it comes to walking dogs in neighborhoods that I am unfamiliar with!
Below are several images depicting what the MapMyDogwalk app looks like in action. As you can see, the layout is simple and straightforward.

Get Your Dog’s Attention While Taking A Picture!
Sadly, not all of us can whistle and whistling can come in handy when calling your dog or trying to get his/her attention. Not a problem! Dog Whistler is an app that will whistle for you! You can even adjust the sound pattern and frequency of the whistle. Pretty neat, huh?
Traveling With Your Dog
We know that sometimes you just want to take your dog with you. Like when you want to go rent a cabin in the roods? Or maybe you are driving across country to relocate and taking your dog with you? It is tough to find out where Fido is welcomed. Bring Fido will break it all down for you will find a variety of locations that are dog friendly ranging from hotels to beaches and restaurants to parks.
