Top 5 Apps for Dog Owners

“There’s an app for that” – yes, even for pet owners.

Mashable released a helpful list of 10 apps that can make your life a little easier when it comes to your four-legged friend. We’ve narrowed it down to 5 to make it even easier!

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. 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.

3. 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. Also great when you have a sick pet at home.

4. 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.

5. Petoxins

A perfect resource after our recent blog on poisonous plants and pets. 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 a 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.

So go ahead, try them out and let us know what you think – and what you find the most useful!
