Cute dogs near you.
Dog Land app
iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. Requires iOS 7.1 or later.
it does: The app links you to dog lovers as well as
canine resources nearby and all over the world. Included
are dog parks, pet stores and services, vets, animal
shelters and rescues, the great outdoors, food and
dining, cafes, shops and services, and travel and
hot: I went in for the resources, but I stayed to look
at cute dog photos and add my own. Unlike other apps
that require you to be "friends" with someone
first, I liked that I could connect, follow and message
other dog owners I saw in the Newsfeed. You can also
vote on whether a place is dog-friendly, get directions
to a park or store you find through the app, and add
your own dog tips. Itís nice to have one place where
you can share doggie photos and find pet services in a
friendly community. An Android version is in the works.
Some of my favorite dog-loving friends donít have
iPhones. Iíll wait.
not: A couple of times, it took me a few tries to get
results when searching a new city. Sometimes, it would
revert to the previous city I had looked at. What worked
best for me was going to "Explore Places,"
adding a destination search in "Everything"
and then use the back arrow to click on a category such
as "Dog Parks" or "Pet Stores." It
could use more dog-friendly votes in the travel and
hotel section, so add your favorites.
