Meeting other dogs at the park should be easy.

Are you bombarded with messages trying to coordinate who and when others are going to the park? Is your dog only tired after playing with other high energy dogs? Have you ever made a trek to the dog park only to find no one else is there? Does your small dog prefer to play with other small dogs? Does your dog need to avoid certain dogs? Then PlayPal is for you.

PlayPal was founded by a group of neighbors who love their dogs like family. Daily exercise and socialization are fundamental to satisfying the physical and mental needs of our canine companions. The best way to do both is to regularly meet up with other friendly dogs at your local dog park, where Rover can run freely and mingle with his friends!

And let’s face it, our dogs have their favorite friends. If you’re at the park and Rover’s found a new buddy, tell them to use the app for future playdates. It’s the least we can do for our best friend.

Great for my dog

hello k8t

So easy to use instead of going back and forth all day with group chats. Definitely valuable for social dogs whose owners have “unconventional” work hours and are always trying to coordinate play dates.

Very useful for playful dogs


This app is perfect for my high energy dog. 30 minutes running around with his best friends at the dog park beats a 2 mile walk every morning to drain his energy.

Not working for me


I got as far as the list/map and there doesn’t seem to select a dog park. The list doesn’t have any of the parks here in Reno. I could locate my favorite park, but can’t select it. Why isn’t there a search function?

Developer Response

Hey there, so sorry for not making this a great first experience with PlayPal. We'll be adding the ability to add parks directly when first signing up to the app shortly, unfortunately this is an oversight on our part. For now would you be up for selecting another park, once selected and in the main portion of the app you should be able to hit "Add" within the parks tab.

Alternatively feel free to reach out at and I can add your local park for you. :)
