8 Must-Have (FREE) Apps for Busy Dog Moms
I use this app every single day, usually before I get dressed in the morning. It’s helpful to know that the forecast is, as it helps me prepare for all aspects of my day, including dog walks. The app also provides pollen count, air quality, and hour by hour temperatures.
With Whistle, you can track your pet’s location and heart rate from anywhere, anytime with wearable collar devices (available for purchase here). I can breathe a little sigh of relief knowing that should my dog become lost, I can track her with GPS right from my phone. It gives this dog mom a little peace of mind, and that’s always a good thing.
Twindog is a fun app that helps dogs and dog moms make new friends. Chat, share photos, and meet other dog lovers in your area. Swipe left to ignore and right to like and get instant matches! Yes, it works a little like a popular dating app, but it’s extra awesome because you can use it with your dog.
If you like keeping an eye on your dog when you’re away from home, you’ll love the Vimtag app. It works in conjunction with Vimtag cameras that are reasonably priced and simple to set up. You can even talk to your dog through the app! It’s a great way to check in on things at home when you’re away.
If you don’t enjoy walking your dog alone or after dark, you’ll love the Companion app. It lets you add contacts who will virtually walk with you, and you can use the app to alert them (or the police) if you’re feeling unsafe. If your phone drops, the app will ask if you’re okay and if you don’t respond, your contacts will also be notified. It’s a great way to protect yourself when you’re out alone.
If you ever ask yourself, “Is this food safe for my dog”, you need iKibble. Quickly scroll through common foods you know to see if your dog can eat them too. iKibble makes it easy to be safe, rather than sorry.
The American Red Cross Pet First Aid app puts veterinary advice for everyday emergencies in the palm of your hand. Get the app and be prepared in the event of an emergency. With videos, interactive quizzes and simple step-by-step advice it’s never been easier to know Pet First Aid.
If your phone is anything like mine, it’s jam-packed with photos of your dog. I use Google Photos to keep all of my pics in the same place and free up space on my phone. Use it to create photo books, GIFs, movies, collages, and more.
The best thing about all of these apps is that they’re all free, which means they’re perfect for any dog mom’s budget.
