If you’re a crazy dog lover, there are literally thousands of pet-apps on the Android Play Store to choose from.
They range across a variety of areas and can help you do stuff from finding the right food for your pet delivered to your doorstep or even finding a playmate for your canine-bud in your neighbourhood.
Here’s a pick of five cool, useful dog-related Android Apps that we think are a must-have for every dog-owner.

MapMyDogWalk is a fun, interactive app that encourages the always important activity of walking your dog, while making it more fun and interesting.

3. Doggy Datez
DoggyDatez is a free location-based platform that makes it easy to find new doggy friends and have more fun whilewalking your dog. By “marking your territory”, you’re taking ownership of an area (200m radius) in the physical world and seeing who else “visits” your spot, just like dogs do! Plus, you can search for other dogs by age, breed, and gender to find new doggy friends in your area to play with! Doggy Datez!

PupTox is a handy categorised listing of over 250 things that may be toxic to your dog. Great to have on hand when shopping for new plants and flowers for the garden, or when your pup decides to feed himself from under the kitchen cabinets. Is it toxic to your dog – PupTox may have the answer.
5. Weather Dog (FTRD UK)
The Weather Dog app is a fun weather application. While not much more informative than the one that’s already on your smartphone, this one is WAY cuter! Using the Accuweather 3-Day forecast, Weather Dog creates animated scenes depicting the current weather in your area. The fun part, an interactive animated dog responds to the weather conditions during the day and night that provides an experience that is a lot more entertaining than your standard weather app!
