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

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.

New user who is excited to see how popular the app can be.

I noticed some processes could be easier, like setting up the hours for new parks, or being able to have multiple dogs on a profile would be nice. I just down loaded this app tonight.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback. For now you are able to add the dog to the same profile in the name field. Obviously this isn't ideal so we hope to add multiple dog profiles in the future. We'll need to figure out selecting which dog you're taking as well, especially for folks who are dog sitters etc.

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.
