Love this app! So easy to use! Gives a comprehensive list and really easy to navigate! Not filled out with unnecessary gumph and give links to available websites for the pubs and links to google maps! Much more confident in taking my Staffie to the pubs on the list! Thanks guys! Glad to see you're expanding! X

Good app!


Don’t know what I was doing wrong before but previous 2 star review is retracted! Is there maybe an issue using it not on WiFi? Either way I’ve gone back in and can now see a wide range of things in my area.

Many thanks to the developer for swift response to my original review as well

Hi there, please get in touch via the feedback form on the app as that doesn't sound correct. It's true there are more in Scotland but I sent a sticker to the Paper Duck in Harborne B17 so I know they are listed. I searched Birmingham B17 on the Midlands map and can see Paper Duck, Hop Garden, White Horse and the Junction. At least 20 straight away around that area. Also places in Moseley including Prince of Wales in B13. Places also in B1 postcode inc Brewdog. I can send a screenshot when you contact and give you instructions. Please always contact first as most things are easily resolved and I am always willing to help out straight away. Thanks

Clunky to use and not enough content


I live in a very dog friendly neighbourhood in central london and not a single one of the dog friendly establishments is on here. In fact, there’s very few places on here in london at all.

The app is difficult to use as well. It insists on you dragging the map around with two fingers, why? And why do you have to tell it where you are? Surely it can work that out.

Can’t believe I paid for this.

Hi Iampomo, that's strange as in the database there are 440 listings in total for London and all should be available in the London map when searching. Can you confirm where you are looking and which borough / postcode you live in?

The London section had a large upgrade not that long ago and continues to be updated. For example, I have sent out at least 10 dogs welcome stickers to London venues in the past 3 weeks and they all get added to the database. If I know how you are using the app and which area is causing the problem I can investigate.

Update 30/3: I have removed the 2 finger drag for you which was the default map behaviour. Also now all London places show at once but are grouped by area so you can see the full coverage. These were changes you were looking for. Also if you click "Get My Location" once it should be saving your location for the next time. Any other problems let me know. Thanks
