11 Must-Have Apps for Dog Owners

Your dog is your best, most loyal friend, and you want to make sure he’s getting the best care he can get. As technology addresses real-life needs more and more each day, companies and non-profits are creating apps to make sure every Fido, Spot, and Princess receives the attention he or she deserves.

We’ve compiled 11 of the best apps for dogs in the gallery below. They all make your tasks easier — whether it’s setting daily reminders for feeding or walking, or helping you provide your dog with first aid treatment.

Which apps will you download for you and your furry friend? Tell us in the comments.

1. Tagg

Tagg is essentially a GPS attachment for your dog’s collar, and because of its many features, it can give you peace of mind. The app will track your dog’s activity and send you a message if he goes beyond the boundaries you set. Not only that, Tagg allows you to make sure your dog is getting enough exercise by measuring movement.

2. DoggyDatez

DoggyDatez is a mobile social platform for dog owners and their dogs to make friends. The main idea is that you can “mark your territory” and see who else visits your spot. You’re also able to search for other DoggyDatez users by gender, age, dog gender, dog age and/or dog breed.

3. Pet Phone

The Pet Phone app lets you track your dog’s health with ease. You can keep track of vet appointments, medications, allergies and food preferences for each of your pets, and the app can be synced with your calendar to get reminders.

4. iCam

If you want to see what your dog is up to in real-time, iCam is the app to get. You can watch your canine friend remotely, just to make sure everything’s all right. This is especially useful if you’re leaving your dog home for the first time, you recently moved or you’re traveling.

5. Petoxins

It’s tough, if not impossible, to know everything that is harmful to your dog. The Petoxins app from the ASPCA helps you out by having an impressive list of poisonous plants, and most of them you probably didn’t know. For example, did you know that tulip bulbs are hazardous? Now you can keep similar vegetation out of your dog’s reach.

6. MapMyDogWalk

With MapMyDogwalk, you and your dog can get fit at the same time. You can log your walks, track your calories and map your favorite routes using GPS. The app also has sharing and geotagging features for photos and data.

7. Pet First Aid

Raising pets is fun, but it’s also a big responsibility, which means there can be some scares. If anything should happen to your dog, Pet First Aid helps you take the right steps to make sure he’ll be OK. Detailed videos and illustrations include restraint, muzzling, CPR, bandaging and more.

8. Pet Minder Pro

Pet Minder Pro helps you keep track of your dog’s actions, and it’s presented in an easy way so you can use it while interacting with your dog. By tapping custom buttons, you’ll never forget when you last gave your dog medicine, fed him, took him for a walk or took him to a playdate. You can also track training phases for puppies, set up reminders and share information via notifications

9. Petsie Dog Breeds

Answering the question “What kind of dog is he?” isn’t always easy, especially if your dog is a rescue or mix. As a tool, Petsie Dog Breeds can help you figure it out, but it’s also full of adorable photos and information. You can even use it as a fun social network by creating a profile for your dog.

10. Weather Puppy

It’s useful to check the weather before you take your dog out for a walk, but Weather Puppy takes it to a new (and very cute) level. The app shows more than 100 dogs depending on the time and weather, and you can even add a pic of your own dog. Weather Puppy partners with non-profits and shelters across the U.S.

11. Foursquare

This might seem like an obvious one, but it really comes in handy for dog owners. You can organize all of the dog parks in your city, find nearby pet stores and vets when you need them and see if any friends with dogs are in your area.
