In this app filled society, it’s only natural that there are apps for our four-legged friends and apps to help us take care of them better, which is always a good thing.

Here are some app suggestions if you are a technologically inclined pug owner.

With this app you can track your various dog walking routes using GPS, just like Map My Run or other running apps, and calculate calories burned, time taken and distanced covered. You and your dog can get fit at the same time! You can also upload photos and data from your walk directly to social media.

 

Pet First Aid

Taking care of any pet is an amazing experience, but it can also be a lot of responsibility, and you always want to do the best by something you love like a child. This app gives you detailed information about what to do when certain crises arise with your pet, or they become injured. It has useful videos and illustrations showing restraint, bandaging, CPR and more.

This app is a social, location-based platform to help dogs and their owners make new friends. You can ‘mark your territory’ in the area where you live, or where you walk your dog, and see if other app users visit that area. You can search for other users by a variety of criteria, including dog breed, so this app is great to interact with other pug owners, and maybe even arrange a pug meet-up in your area.

Pet Phone

This app lets you keep track of all your pet’s health needs, including medications, vet appointments, food preferences and allergies. As pugs can be especially prone to health complaints and allergies, this app could be a real lifesaver. You can keep records for each individual pet, and the app can sync with your calendar to give you reminders.

Weather Puppy

A lot of people will have a weather app on their phone, but why do you want a normal weather app, when you can have one featuring pictures of incredibly cute puppies? This app will give you up to the minute weather updates for anywhere around the world, with a puppy to match! It will even let you add a picture of your own furry friend. What makes this app even better is that it is partnered with non-profits and dog shelters around the world.
