Top 5 apps for your dog

We all have apps to help us manage our lives – from shopping to socialising, dating to drawing – if you need to do something, there’s probably an app for that.

But what about your dog? Sure, they might struggle to use the apps themselves, but there are plenty to help you organise their lives, helping them become happier and healthier dogs.

With that in mind, here are our top 5 dog apps!

PitPat – The best app for keeping your dog happy and healthy

Is it bold to start a list with your own app? Maybe. Do we think it’s one of the best tools out there for helping your dog get healthy? Definitely. 

The PitPat App is a window into your dog’s life. When used with the PitPat dog activity monitor, you can find out what your dog is doing, when they’re doing it and how they’re doing against their goals. See how much time your pup has spent running, walking, playing, pottering and resting, and keep track of their progress over time.

Even if you haven’t got yourself a PitPat device yet, you can download the app for free to start monitoring your dog’s weight and get an exercise goal tailored to them. 

It’s designed with dog owners in mind – so you’ll find useful features like being able to have multiple dog profiles, and sharing ownership of the dog, so the whole family can keep track of your pup’s progress.
