If you’re a pet parent and an iPhone user, you’ve probably browsed the app store for dog-centric apps, only to be overwhelmed with the enormous variety of available apps. From pet first aid, to dog park locators, and schedule keepers, there’s an app for everything. But, not all apps are created equal.

That’s why we dug deep and found the 5 coolest iPhone apps that every dog owner should have.

PetTech’s PetSaver App
With a push of a button and a swipe of your finger you will have instant access to your pet’s health and safety. Includes step-by-step instructions for pet CPR, first aid, and daily care for cats and dogs. Also included in the app is a comprehensive list of pet poisons, from plants to household chemicals, and foods. This app is the absolute must-have for any pet parent.

Available for $3.99 at iTunes.

We’ve all heard of a pedometer, the little gadget worn on the hip to count our daily steps. Based on the same principle of getting people – and their dogs – walking more, the Petometer tracks your dog walks by distance, time, pace, and route. Keep track of past walks and try to beat your best pace or distance, all while improving the health of you AND your dog!

Available for free at iTunes.


PetSnap is the perfect app for pet parents that love to take photos with the iPhone’s built in camera. The app features built-in sounds to attract your dog’s attention right to the camera lens, just as the picture is snapped! (Rumor has it, PetSnap is adding Facebook upload functionality in their next version, too!)

Available for $1.99 at iTunes.

Use this app to find pet friendly hotels, restaurants, and bars in your area. Locate local vets, dog parks, pet stores, animal shelters, pet sitters, kennels, groomers and more.

Available for free at iTunes.

This app is the ultimate in pet organization. Keep a schedule of feeding times, medications, vet and grooming appointments, play dates and more – with email reminders to keep you in the loop and on time.

Available for free at iTunes.

    The PetSnap is not available in the App Store as stated in your article. Maybe the new IOS7 affected it. Also someone named Mark Jenner said there is an app called tagg that works with gps, well it too cannot be found in the App Store. Didn’t check any of the others, but thought you should know about these two. Thanks!

    There’s quite a cool one called ‘tagg’ which works with a GPS tracker for your dog to track his movements, activity and whereabouts. Doesn’t come cheap, but extremely useful if your dog is occasionally a runner!

    Another one is called: Game for Dogs! Mine love to play! It is based on the laser type toy. Fun to watch them try to catch the squeaker toy!

  4. Pose-A-Pet is free and has great sounds. Weather Pup is fabulous and is free!

    And don’t forget an oldie but goodie: google. Just google pet friendly hotels and restaurants. Of course it’s free.

    Unfortunately most of these apps have really bad reviews plus some haven’t been updated in almost 4 years. PetSaver app is actually $4.99. There’s 2 Pet Snap apps; a really old one that’s free, and a newer one that’s $0.99.

    I love PetPartner! You can request appointments at your vet and groomer and get automatic reminders on your phone.
