A new app that allows dog owners to connect and perhaps find love for themselves and their pooches has been developed. Tindog is the first social app for dog lovers who want to connect with other owners nearby that share a similar passion for canines, according to its developer Holidog, an online marketplace for pet services. The app can also help owners socialise their pet and perhaps arrange dog-dates.
The users can create a profile for their pooch on the app and search to find new furry and human friends. They can chat, share photos and create events to connect with other dog lovers in their area. Based on Global Positioning System (GPS) location, Tindog will suggest nearby matches and - much like Tinder - allows users to swipe left (no) or right (has potential) through recommended profiles.
If both users swipe right, then it's a match and the new friends can chat to learn more or arrange a meet-up."Dogs bring so much joy and love, that they really have the power to connect us. That's why we wanted to make it easy for dog lovers to meet new people around them who feel the same way," said Julien Muller, Founder & CEO of Holidog. "Whether it's building new friendships or even making a love connection, Tindog is a great way to expand your social circle with others who love man's best friend just as much as you do," Muller said.
